Chemically-mediated pre-mating behavior in two tetranychid species


We used bioassays to evaluate the arrestment response of male twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, and Banks grass mite, Oligonychus pratensis (Banks) to whole-body extract from conspecific quiescent deutonymphs. We examined the effect of previous behavior on mite response to extract from female quiescent deutonymphs. We also examined male… (More)
