Agricultural Acarology: Introduction to Integrated Mite by Marjorie A. Hoy

By Marjorie A. Hoy

Written by way of a globally admired entomologist, Agricultural Acarology: creation to built-in Mite administration provides instruments for constructing built-in mite administration courses for agriculture, together with administration of plant-feeding mites, mites attacking bees and cattle, and saved items. Emphasizing the biology, ecology, habit, and various equipment of controlling mites, this ebook presents an outline of the administration of agriculturally very important mites utilizing all to be had built-in Pest administration (IPM) instruments, together with organic keep watch over, cultural practices, host-plant resistance, and pesticides.

Agricultural Acarology prepares agricultural managers to spot, deal with, and give a contribution to the sector of built-in mite administration. An accompanying CD-ROM comprises a number of colour pictures of mites and the wear they reason, and PDFs of key publications.

The prey it feeds on affects its survival and fecundity. When M. occidentalis was fed a diet consisting solely of Tetranychus eggs, it lived longer and had a higher rate of fecundity than when it was fed a diet consisting of active stages (Bruce-Oliver and Hoy 1990). The details of how mites feed are not understood at present, and what we do know is usually based on morphological analyses of the mouthparts. The feeding behavior of ticks, because they are relatively large and are of major economic importance as vectors of human and animal diseases, has been studied extensively.
