Euseius concordis (Chant) is an important predatory mite found in citrus orchards. The toxicity of 19 pesticides used in citrus orchards on biological and population parameters of this mite was assessed. Our results indicated that formetanate hydrochloride, dimethoate and phosmet were highly harmful (100% mortality) to E. concordis. Carbosulfan, diflubenzuron, fenpropathrin, gamma-cyhalothrin, imidacloprid, lambda-cyhalothrin, lambda-cyhalothrin + thiamethoxam, mineral and vegetable oils… 
Lethal and sublethal effects of insecticides on the survival and reproduction of Brevipalpus yothersi (Acari: Tenuipalpidae).
The application of these insecticides in the management of pest insects is unlikely to promote an increase in the citrus leprosis mite population.
Are Pesticides Used to Control Thrips Harmonious with Soil-Dwelling Predatory Mite Cosmolaelaps sabelis (Mesostigmata: Laelapidae)?
Abstract Edaphic predatory mites could be introduced in pest management programs of pests that live, or spend part of their life cycle, in the soil. Some mesostigmatic mites have been widely used for
Fate of Pyriproxyfen in Soils and Plants
The review ends by showing how the fate profile of pyriproxyfen in soils and plants influences the adverse effects of the molecule on non-target organisms.
The effect of cyfluthrin on testis inhibin B in rats and the intervention of Lycium barbarum polysaccharide
The decrease of INHα and INHβB expression caused by Cy exposure indicates that Cy has a toxic effect on the testis of rats, and the addition of LBP has a certain protective effect on that of rats.


Sublethal effects of pyrethroid and neonicotinoid insecticides on Iphiseiodes zuluagai Denmark and Muma (Mesostigmata: Phytoseiidae)
The estimated life-table parameters indicated that deltamethrin, lambda-cyhalothrin and esfenvalerate caused greater reduction in Ro and r of I. zuluagai compared with imidacloprid and thiamethoxam, which were similar to the control treatment.
Compatibilidade de Agrotóxicos com os Ácaros Predadores Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) e Phytoseiulus macropilis (Banks) (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
Besides the high mortality of P. macropilis caused by fenpropathrin, beta-cypermethrin, formetanate, methomyl and pyridaben, these pesticides led to the extinction of mite population because of the tolerance of N. californicus to several pesticides.
Toxicity of some insecticides to Tetranychus urticae, Neoseiulus californicus and Tydeus californicus
In laboratory trials, the direct and residual effects of six insecticides recommended for the control of aphids, whiteflies and thrips in vegetable crops, and their effect was often favourable towards T. urticae and unfavourable towards N. californicus, were evaluated for the three mite species.
Toxicity of insecticides and acaricides to the predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
The side effects of a selection of pesticides on the eggs, nymphs and adults of the predatory mite Neoseiulus californicus, including abamectin, were determined to be harmful and moderately harmful.
Seletividade de alguns agrotóxicos em uso na citricultura ao ácaro predador Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
Bioassays indicate that to this population of N. californicus, the releases can be performed safely 3 days after the application, except for cyhexatin (5 days), dicofol and pyridaben (14 days) and chlorfenapyr (21 days), without risk of significant adult mortality rates due to the application of pesticides.
Development, Oviposition, and Mortality of Neoseiulus fallacis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) in Response to Reduced-Risk Insecticides
Eight reduced-risk insecticides and three conventional insecticides were tested against Neoseiulus fallacis, the most abundant predacious mite in North Carolina apple (Malus spp.) orchards, finding that spinosad resulted in the highest mortality.
Seletividade de agroquímicos ao ácaro predador Iphiseiodes zuluagai Denmark & Muma (Acari: Phytoseiidae)
The side-effects of agrochemical to Iphiseiodes zuluagai Denmark & Muma (Acari: Phytoseiidae) were studied in laboratory using the residual contact spray method in glass surface. Forty-two plant
