Metaseiulus occidentalis (Nesbitt) andTyphlodromus pyri Scheuten have complementary features/ traits that enable them to control effectively plant-feeding mites on apple. Populations of both predators gave as good or better biological control of the apple rust mite (Aculus schlechtendali Nalepa), European red mite (Panonychus ulmi Koch) and two-spotted… CONTINUE READING
