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. Developmental time from egg to adult emergence decreased when temperature increased. Total development period of immature stages was longest at 15 ° C and shortest at 35 ° C for both male and female. Sex ratio favored females and temperature did not exert a… Expand

Life table parameters of an indigenous strain of Neoseiulus californicus McGregor (Acari: Phytoseiidae) when fed Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae)
TLDR
Developmental data of five constant temperatures, temperature thresholds and thermal requirements may be used to predict the occurrence, number of generations and population dynamics of N. californicus as an important biocontrol agent of Tetranychus urticae. Expand

Life table parameters of Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae), on the European red mite, Panonychus ulmi (Acari: Tetranychidae) in laboratory condition
TLDR
Results showed that N. californicus would be able to develop at temperatures range of 20–25°C feeding on P. ulmi and has the suitable potential to control it. Expand
Effect of temperature on the life-history traits of Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) fed on Panonychus ulmi
TLDR
The development and adult life-history traits obtained for N. californicus fed on P. ulmi indicated significant potential for biological control and mean developmental time and adult longevity were inversely related to temperature from 15 to 30°C. Expand
Mating duration and egg production of the predaceous mite Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) vary with temperature
TLDR
Total egg production peaked at 25 °C and decreased at lower and higher temperatures, suggesting reduced sperm transfer and/or survival rate of sperm in the female body may account for decreased egg production when temperatures are not optimal. Expand
Age‐ and temperature‐dependent oviposition model of Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Acari: Phytoseiidae) with Tetranychus urticae as prey
TLDR
The longevity, fecundity and survivorship of adult female N. californicus with Tetranychus urticae Koch as prey was investigated, and the oviposition model comprised temperature‐dependent fecundities, age‐specific cumulative Oviposition rate and age-specific survival rate functions. Expand
Biological Aspects and Life Table Parameters of the Predatory Mite, Neoseiulus californicus McGregor (Acari: Phytoseiidae) Reared on Different Diets
TLDR
Results provide alternatives of T. urticae to rear N. californicus for mass production although the efficiency was not the same, and developmental periods of both female and male individuals were longer when they fed on date palm pollen. Expand
Demographic response to constant temperatures in Neoseiulus barkeri (Phytoseiidae) fed on Tetranychus urticae (Tetranychidae)
TLDR
The results of this study indicated that N. barkeri has inherent potential for the control of two-spotted spider mite at higher temperatures especially at temperatures between 30–35°C. Expand
Temperature‐dependent developmental model of Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Acari, Phytoseiidae)
TLDR
The temperature‐dependent developmental models of N. californicus developed in this study could be used to determine optimal temperature conditions for its mass rearing, to predict its seasonal population dynamics in fruit tree orchards or greenhouse crops, or to develop a population dynamics model of the species.

4FEEDING CAPACITY OF THE PREDACIOUS MITE Neoseiulus bellinus (WOMERSLEYI) FED ON Tetranychus urticae (KOCH) AT DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES
TLDR
The life cycle for all immature stages tended to decrease as the light period increased indicating that immature development as well as diapause induction are affected by photoperiod and further suggest that diAPause-inducing stimuli prolong the developmental period especially for the deutonymphal stage.
