The management of Tetranychus urticae, a key pest of clementine trees, is mainly based on the use of acaricides. However, more environmentally safe measures, such as biological control, are being encouraged. Life-history traits of the three most abundant phytoseiid mites associated with T. urticae on this crop (Euseius stipulatus, Phytoseiulus persimilis and Neoseiulus californicus) were studied. The experiments were performed under laboratory conditions (25°C, 80 ± 5% RH and 16:8 h (L:D)) on… Expand
Reproductive parameters of Phytoseiulus macropilis (Banks) fed with Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Phytoseiidae, Tetranychidae) in laboratory.
TLDR
Investigation in the laboratory of the reproductive parameters of the predatory mite P. macropilis when fed T. urticae demonstrated that the longevity of adult female was 27.5 days and adult male was 29.0 days, and the population grew 1.2 times/day and doubled every 3.7 days. Expand
Reproductive parameters of Phytoseiulus macropilis ( Banks ) fed with Tetranychus urticae Koch ( Acari : Phytoseiidae , Tetranychidae ) in laboratory
Predatory mites that belong to the Phytoseiidae family are one of the main natural enemies of phytophagous mites, thus allowing for their use as a biological control. Phytoseiulus macropilis (Banks,Expand
Efficacy of Neoseiulus californicus and Phytoseiulus persimilis in suppression of Tetranychus urticae in young clementine plants
TLDR
Phytoseiulus persimilis was highly effective in reducing both T. urticae infestations and the damage level inflicted on plants at both release rates evaluated and all three periods considered, while N. californicus demonstrated low performance under certain conditions. Expand
Effect of plant cover management in the biological control of Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Prostigmata) in clementines.
TLDR
The effect of a sown cover of Festuca arundinacea (Poaceae) to traditional alternatives compared with traditional alternatives resulted in the lowest populations of T. urticae in the F. arund inacea cover. Expand
Compatibility of Phytoseiulus persimilis and Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) with imidacloprid to manage clementine nursery pests
TLDR
Field results proved that young clementine plants could be satisfactorily protected against key pests with releases of P. persimilis combined with drench applications of imidacloprid, which was highly effective for management of the key pests of young cleMENTine plants in the nursery. Expand
Life Table and Predation Capacity of Phytoseiulus persimilis Athias-Henriot (Acari: Phytoseiidae) Feeding on Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae) on Rose
TLDR
The results showed that P. persimilis can successfully survive and reproduce on T. urticae eggs on rose and indicated that the consumption rates increased from nymph to adult in both sexes. Expand
Biological parameters of Neoseiulus longilaterus (Athias-Henriot) (Parasitiformes, Phytoseiidae) fed on prey and pollen in laboratory conditions
Abstract Tetranychus urticae is the most important pest on different crops worldwide. Search for endemic phytoseiid mites co-occurring with the above pest, which might be good candidates asExpand
Life-table parameters of Neoseiulus womersleyi (Schicha) and Euseius ovalis (Evans) (Acari: Phytoseiidae) feeding on six food sources
TLDR
Both predatory mites developed, oviposited normally and population increased in a high rate when feeding on the two kinds of pollen, suggesting that these pollens may be a useful food supplement for the two predators. Expand
Effects of Euseius stipulatus on establishment and efficacy in spider mite suppression of Neoseiulus californicus and Phytoseiulus persimilis in clementine
TLDR
It is concluded that superiority of E. stipulatus in intraguild interactions may indeed contribute to the currently observed predator species composition and abundance, rendering natural control of T. urticae in Spanish clementine orchards unsatisfactory. Expand
Life-table attributes of Neoseiulus womersleyi (Schicha) feeding on five tetranychid mites (Acari: Phytoseiidae, Tetranychidae)
TLDR
The results provide the life-history parameters of N. womersleyi using different spider mites as prey and show that it can be used as a highly efficient biological control agent of spider mite pests. Expand

Life-history of predatory mites Neoseiulus californicus and Phytoseiulus persimilis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) on four spider mite species as prey, with special reference to Tetranychus evansi (Acari: Tetranychidae)
TLDR
The resultant low capacity for population growth suggests poor ability of the two tested predators to suppress T. evansi populations on commercial crops, and it is unlikely that P. californicus and N. persimilis, now being widely used to control T. urticae in greenhouse crops in Central Europe, will be able to halt any spread of T.evansi to greenhouse crop in temperate areas. Expand
Influence of selected fruit tree pollen on life history of Euseius stipulatus (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
TLDR
Results show that almond, plum, cherry and apricot pollen possess higher nutritional value for E. stipulatus than pear and apple pollen and thus may contribute in sustaining and increasing the predator population in field conditions. Expand
Approaches for Sampling the Twospotted Spider Mite (Acari: Tetranychidae) on Clementines in Spain
TLDR
The incidence (proportion of infested samples) and mean density relationship were developed, and optimal binomial sample sizes for estimating low populations of T. urticae on leaves and fruit were found, but binomial sampling was the only valid method for estimating mite density on fruit. Expand
Effect of temperature on life history of the predatory mite Amblyseius (Neoseiulus) californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
TLDR
Based on data, the maximum number of generations that could complete development in a year under field conditions in Ibaraki, central Japan, would be between 21 and 28. Expand
Effect of long-term feeding history on functional and numerical response of Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
TLDR
The functional and numerical responses of the predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus to eggs and protonymphs of Tetranychus urticae were studied and suggest no drawbacks in the use of mass-reared N. califORNicus as biocontrol agents. Expand

Phytoseiid mites were released on young potted citrus trees to evaluate their effectiveness in controlling twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, and citrus red mite, Panonychus citriExpand
Efficacy of five selected acaricides against Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae) and their side effects on relevant natural enemies occurring in citrus orchards.
TLDR
When considering both efficacy and side effects on beneficial arthropods, the best options would seem to be mineral oil, tebufenpyrad and clofentezine, however, it is urgent to complete testing of the side effects of the acaricides used in citrus. Expand

Survey of natural enemies of spider mites (Acari: Tetranychidae) in citrus orchards in eastern Spain

Quantifying the presence of many known spider mites predators in Valencian citrus orchards is an important first step towards spider mite control. Expand
Evolution of Life-History Patterns in the Phytoseiidae
TLDR
The approach taken here is to formulate hypotheses independent of the actual life-history data, because there is a danger that the range of species studied is biased towards phytoseiids that are successful predators of economically important plant mites. Expand
