Impact of Weather on Seasonality of Phytophagous Mites and Their Natural Enemies Associated With Citrus in Vidharbha Region of Maharashtra , India

  title={Impact of Weather on Seasonality of Phytophagous Mites and Their Natural Enemies Associated With Citrus in Vidharbha Region of Maharashtra , India},
  author={A. George and C. Rao and Sonali Ghike and V. Dhengre},
Plant inhabiting mites on major citrus cultivars from three districts in Maharashtra, India and their associated natural enemies were documented during spring, summer and autumn seasons through random surveys for five consecutive years. Six phytophagous mite species viz., Eutetranychus orientalis (Klein), Brevipalpus rugulosus Chaudhri, Akbar & Rasool, Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks), Schizotetranychus sp (Tetranychidae)., Eotetranychus sp. (Tetranychidae), Phyllocoptruta oleivora (Ashmead… Expand

Impact of weather parameters on seasonality of phytophagous mites
Climatic and weather changes not only affect the status of insect pests but also affect their population dynamics, distribution, abundance, intensity and feeding behavior. Both a-biotic (temperature,Expand


Yield Reduction in ‘Tahiti‘ Lime from Panonychus Citri Feeding Injury Following Different Pesticide Treatment Regimes and Impact on the Associated Predacious Mites
This study demonstrated that the use of one or more pesticides on ‘Tahiti’ lime trees can negatively impact populations of citrus red mites and their associated predators to the detriment of yield. Expand
Biology of Euseius mesembrinus (Acari: Phytoseiidae): Life Tables and Feeding Behavior on Tetranychid Mites on Citrus
Feeding behavior and oviposition of Euseius mesembrinus adult females did not affect either progeny sex ratio or survival on ice plant pollen as a food source, and Survivorship of E. mesemBRinus immatures was significantly higher onIce plant pollen than other food types provided. Expand
Mallada desjardinsi(Navas): A chrysopid predator on sucking and mite pests of citrus
Predatory potential of Mallada desjardinsi (Navas) was studied on nymphs of citrus psylla, Diaphorina citri Kuwayama, citrus blackfly, Aleurocanthus woglumi Ashby, aphid Aphis gossypii Glover and Oriental red mite along with eggs of rice grain moth, Corcyra cephalonica under laboratory conditions to substantiate the host utility for mass multiplication.

A Temperature and Humidity Study of Citrus Rust Mite Employing a Constant Humidity Air-flow Technique
Both temperature, a quadratic factor, and humidity, a linear factor, appear to strongly affect the ability of the citrus rust mite to increase in numbers. Expand
Reproductive Responses of the Broad Mite, Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Acari: Tarsonemidae), to Constant Temperature-Humidity Regimes
Reproductive responses of the broad mite, Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks), to various temperature-humidity combinations were investigated by measuring egg production and population increase per generation, finding that temperatures above 30°C coupled with low humidities were lethal to the egg and nymphal stages.
