Effect of Tomato Leaf Hairiness on Functional and Numerical Response of Neoseiulus Californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
The objective of this study was to determine whether differences in hairiness of tomato plants affect the functional and numerical response of the predator Neoseiulus californicus McGregor attacking…
Presence of the Aphid, Chaetosiphon fragaefolii, on Strawberry in Argentina
Although aphids are not the main pests in strawberry fields, C. fragaefolii can be a serious problem because it can transmit several virus diseases of strawberry and greater knowledge of life history traits and mortality factors of this species is needed in order to design appropriate control strategies.
Effect of tomato pubescence on development, survival and fecundity of Tetranychus urticae koch and Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) [Acari: Tetranychidae : Phytoseiidae]
The objective of this study was to determine whether differences in tomato hairiness affect the devlopmental time, survival and fecundity of Tetranychus urticae Koch and Neoseiulus californicus…

Wild vegetation surrounding crops may provide temporary habitat and potential food sources for phytoseiids in different seasons and the presence of these plants in the vicinity of strawberry could contribute to the persistence of N. californicus population and help to limit T. urticae growth when this pest begins to colonize the crop.
First record of Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) transvaalensis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) from Argentina
We report for the first time from Argentina Typhlodromus ( Anthoseius ) transvaalensis Nesbitt from Capsicum annuum L. and Lycopersicum esculentum L. (Solanaceae) in Concordia, Entre Rios.…
First record of Hexathrombium (Acari: Microtrombidiidae) on Tetracha (Tetracha) brasiliensis brasiliensis (Coleoptera: Cicindelidae) in Argentina
Mites of the genus Hexathrombium Cooreman were collected from Tetracha (Tetracha) brasiliensis brasiliensis (Cicindelidae) in Bt cotton crops. This is the first record of this mite in Argentina.

Negative interactions resulting in a tendency for species to avoid each other, such as demonstrated herein, can affect distribution and performance of herbivorous arthropods.
Effect of prey deprivation on survival and reproduction of neoseiulus californicus (Acari: phytoseiidae) females
The overall effect of food deprivation was mainly due to a reduction in adult survivorship and in the proportion of reproducing females, and the negative effect on the net reproductive rate during the first 10 days of adulthood could reduce the capacity of N. californicus to prevent population increases of T. urticae in the short term.
Integrating adverse effect analysis into environmental risk assessment for exotic generalist arthropod biological control agents: a three-tiered framework
A panel of 47 experts from 14 countries discussed, in six online forums over 12 months, scientific criteria for an ERA for exotic GABCAs, and a three-tiered ERA comprising Scoping, Screening and Definitive Assessments was developed that should contribute to the development of safe pathways for the use of low riskGABCAs.

Whether certain crops constitute overwintering sites for the Argentine strain of the predator Neoseiulus californicus and whether females underwent reproductive diapause in winter and the mite’s frequency on several crops in other seasons and potential association with a strawberry pest is discussed.
