The South West Asia (SWA) group is the most likely source of the introduced Iranian populations of D. citri, and the sequence similarity of the Wolbachia, wDi, strains from the Florida, USA and Iranian populations is supported.
A method to assess the effects of pesticides on the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis (Acari Phytoseiidae) in the laboratory

Pyrethrins and abamectin proved to be more toxic than other pesticides, and thiamethoxam was more Toxic than spinosad, azoxystrobin and tolylfluanide.

Mites were able to transmit GPGV to healthy grapevines, suggesting that C. vitis is a potential vector of this virus.
Phytoseiid mites — pollen relationships: observations in a vineyard and the surrounding vegetation
- C. Duso, V. Malagnini, A. Paganelli, L. Aldegheri, M. Bottini
The aims of this study were to evaluate pollen diversity and abundance on the foliage of grapevines and of plants included in the hedgerow, by using acetolysis and to study mite colonization in the vineyard and on different plant species with special emphasis on phytoseiid-pollen relationships.

Diversity and abundance of phytoseiid mites (Acari: Phytoseiidae) in vineyards and the surrounding vegetation in northeastern Italy

- 30 June 2004
Plant species with rich phytoseiid diversity or supporting high densities of important species could be considered for planting and/or conserve hedgerows to optimise strategies for successful population management in vineyards.
Detection of 'Candidatus Phytoplasma mali' in different populations of Cacopsylla melanoneura in Italy
- V. Malagnini, F. Pedrazzoli, C. Ioriatti
Data obtained in this work demonstrate that ‘Ca. P. mali’ may overwinter in the body of C. melanoneura and that there are differences in the infection proportion among populations.

Mites occurring on a number of natural and secondary hedgerowslocated in north-eastern Italy were monitored, with particular attention being paid tophytoseiids (Acari: Phytoseiidae), and a potentialrelationship between pollen availability and the abundance of phytOSEiids, in particular of Euseius finlandicus (Oudemans) was found.
