Biology of red spider mite, Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Boisd.) (Acari: Tetranychidae) on different cucurbits
Based on minimum mortality during development, shorter larval plus nymphal development and higher fecundity and longevity, musk melon (Cucumis melo var. reticulata Linn.) was found the most preferred host among different cucurbits. Expand
Relative efficacy of different pesticides against red spider mite, Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Boisd.) (Acari: Tetranychidae)
Diafenthiuron proved to be the most effective pesticide against different stages of the mite followed by propargite and dicofol, however, oxydemeton methyl and dimethoate were the least effective. Expand
Development of two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae koch (acari: tetranychidae) on Rose
Based on lesser mortality during development, shorter larval and nymphal development, and higher fecundity - ventral surface of mature leaves of rose were found more preferred by mite for its development and multiplication. Expand

Pea pod borer, Etiella zinckenella (Treitschke) (Lepidoptera: Phycitidae) is a cosmopolitan species and is know to damage a large varierty of leguminous crops. In India, it is one of the commonlyExpand
Fundamentals of Applied Acarology
Techniques employed in their preservation in different killing mediums are given in good details and LT–SEM technology has been mentioned for producing magnified clear images needed for showing details of intact mites and for studying their interactions on plant and insect hosts. Expand
Mite Pests of Field Crops
A crop which is a volunteered or cultivated plant (any plant) whose product is harvested by a human at some point of its growth stage is known as a field crop. Field crops are grown on a large scaleExpand
