Biology and predation of the Japanese strain of Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
The life history characteristics and predation of the Japanese Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) strain on the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, were studied in the laboratory under 60–70% RH and 16L: 8D conditions to assess the effectiveness of theJapanese N. califORNicus strain as an important biological control agent against T. uricae.

Toxicity of bifenazate and its principal active metabolite, diazene, to Tetranychus urticae and Panonychus citri and their relative toxicity to the predaceous mites, Phytoseiulus persimilis and
It is concluded that bifenazate is an ideal compound for controlling these pest mites, giving high efficacy, long-lasting activity and excellent selectivity for spider mites. Expand
A novel action of highly specific acaricide; bifenazate as a synergist for a GABA-gated chloride channel of Tetranychus urticae [Acari: Tetranychidae].
Although neither acaricide showed a GABA agonist action, 30 μM of bifenazate or diazene significantly enhanced the GABA-induced response of TuGABAR in a dose-dependent manner, shifting the EC(50) of GABA from 24.8 μM to 4.83 μM. Expand
A unique primary structure of RDL (resistant to dieldrin) confers resistance to GABA‐gated chloride channel blockers in the two‐spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae Koch
The primary structure of the second transmembrane (M2) segment of resistant to dieldrin (RDL), an ionotropic γ‐aminobutyric acid receptor (GABAR) subunit, and the structure–function relationships inExpand
