Phytoseiulus macropilis (Banks) (Phytoseiidae) is a natural enemy of Tetranychus urticae Koch (TSSM), a common pest in several cultures, especially in greenhouses. This research aimed to know the biological parameters of a strain of P. macropilis from Vale do Taquari, State of Rio Grande do Sul, feeding on TSSM at different temperatures. The study was initiated with 30 eggs individualized in arenas under the temperature of 20, 25 and 30 ± 1°C and relative humidity of 80 ± 10%. The average… CONTINUE READING
