The study indicates the potential of mixed releases of N. californicus and N. cucumeris for the management of spider mite infestations and decreases the searching efficiency of the Neoseiulus species with increasing prey densities.
Eriophyoid mites on coniferous plants in China with descriptions of a new genus and five new species (Acari: Eriophyoidea)
A new genus, five new species, a new record and three new combinations of eriophyoid mites on coniferous plants are reported; all are vagrants on leaf surfaces; no apparent damage was found on host plants.
Prey consumption and functional response of Neoseiulus californicus and Neoseiulus longispinosus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) on Tetranychus urticae and Tetranychus kanzawai (Acari: Tetranychidae)
When different densities of prey were offered to the predators, more prey was consumed at higher prey densities, and interaction between prey stage and prey density was significant for N. californicus, but not significant forN.
Transcriptome characterization and gene expression analysis related to chemoreception in Trichogramma chilonis, an egg parasitoid.
Review of Phyllocoptruta, with Descriptions of Two New Species (Acari: Eriophyoidea)
The two new species of Phyllocoptruta from Shaanxi Province, China, are described and illustrated and are vagrants on the undersurface of host leaves, causing no apparent injury.
Continuous rearing of the predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus on an artificial diet
Artificial diets supplemented with an extract of E. kuehniella eggs (20%) may have potential for use in the mass rearing of N. californicus.
