  • Free-living predatory mites are one of the most abundant and species-rich group of arthropods in the soil, with a great potential for pest control. In the present study we examined the predatory mite fauna in the soil of citrus orchards in order to evaluate their potential as natural enemies of thrips pests and especially of Pezothrips kellyanus (Bagnall) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae). Moreover, two trials were conducted to assess if foliar sprays of the insecticide chlorpyrifos or the addition of… CONTINUE READING
