Digestive α‐amylases of the flour moth Ephestia kuehniella– adaptation to alkaline environment and plant inhibitors
It is concluded that lepidopteran α‐amylases are evolutionarily adapted in terms of structure and expression dynamics for effective functioning in the digestive system.

Simulation of the rate of population increase under ideal conditions, using real temperature records obtained from Czech grain stores, showed that the pest mite populations increase only during 3.5 months within a typical 9-month storage season in Central Europe, indicating that control of mites is recommended during the months when allergens and pests are produced.

Results indicate that polyproplyne vial tests can be used to determine discriminating concentrations for the early detection of acaricide resistant Varroa and multiple-resistance in Kyvalka may indicate metabolic resistance.

Multivariate analysis of fungi complex composition showed that the frequency of fungal was species significantly influenced by the kind of seed, which may heighten the risk of occurrence of mycotoxins in food and feed stuffs and cause mixed contamination by fungal and mite allergens.
Astigmatid mite growth and fungi preference (Acari: Acaridida): Comparisons in laboratory experiments
Determination of pH in Regions of the Midguts of Acaridid Mites
The results characterizing in vivo conditions in the mite gut offer useful information to study the activity of mite digestive enzymes including their inhibitors and gut microflora.
Prey range of the predatory mite Cheyletus malaccensis (Acari: Cheyletidae) and its efficacy in the control of seven stored-product pests.
Point mutations in the sodium channel gene conferring tau-fluvalinate resistance in Varroa destructor.
All individuals that survived the tau-fluvalinate treatment in the bioassay harboured the L(1002) → V mutation combined with the F(1052), while dead individuals from both the sensitive and resistant populations harboured mostly the L-1002 residue and either of the two residues at position 1052.
Comparison of Microbiomes between Red Poultry Mite Populations (Dermanyssus gallinae): Predominance of Bartonella-like Bacteria
The presence of identified putative pathogenic bacteria is relevant with respect to human and animal health issues while the identification of symbiontic bacteria can lead to new control methods targeting them to destabilize the arthropod host.
