The Phytoseiidae as biological control agents of pest mites and insects: A bibliography, (Monograph) | Tuomas S Kostiainen, Marjorie A Hoy | download | B–OK. Part of the Progress in Biological Control book series (PIBC, volume 19) Phytoseiidae is the most important family of plant inhabiting predatory mites.
These mites are extensively used as biological control agents for management of mite and insect pests Cited by: The Phytoseiidae as biological control agents of pest mites and insects: A bibliography (–) Experimental & Applied Acarology vol page () Cite this article.
The history of biological control of harmful organisms by mites is marked by outstanding achievements with a few premiere natural enemies.
Early works concentrated on the use of predatory mites for the control of synanthropic flies, More recently, the focus has been mostly on mites of the family Phytoseiidae for the control of plant feeding mites. These mites are extensively used as biological control agents for management of mite and insect pests of crops grown in greenhouses and in open field.
Mites (Acari) for Pest Control is an extremely comprehensive publication, covering in depth the 34 acarine families that contain mites useful for the control of pest mites and insects, nematodes and weeds.
In addition to providing information on each relevant acarine family, the book includes essential information on the introduction, culture and establishment of acarine biocontrol agents, the effects of the host plants, agrochemicals and environmental factors on mites.
Microbial Control of Insect and Mite Pests: From Theory to Practice is an important source of information on microbial control agents and their implementation in a variety of crops and their use against medical and veterinary vector insects.
Phytoseiidae. Phytoseiid mites are well-known natural enemies of phytophagous arthropods on cultivated and noncultivated plants. They have mostly been used to control pest spider mites, but some can control thrips.
Revision of the lifestyles of phytoseiid mites (Acari. Eric W. Riddick –Research Entomologist Ladybird beetles (a.k.a., lady beetles, or ladybugs) are well-documented as important biological control agents (predators) of plant pests in urban File Size: 2MB. Biological control-oriented studies on the Phytoseiidae began only at the close of the Second World War, when outbreaks of spider mites that followed the introduction of synthetic pesticides on commercial crops indicated the paramount.
Phytoseiidae mites are efficient predators, able to control pest mites and small arthropods in crops all over the world, using three biological control strategies: (i) augmentation, (ii) classical, and (iii) conservation.

The history of biological control of harmful organisms by mites is marked by outstanding achievements with a few premiere natural enemies. Early works concentrated on the use of predatory mites for the control of synanthropic flies, More recently, the focus has been mostly on mites of the family Phytoseiidae for the control of plant feeding : Daniel Carrillo.
This is the third of 12 papers in an issue of Informe Agropecuário that is devoted entirely to the biological control of plant pests, diseases and invasive plants, and it discusses the use of predatory mites as biological control agents.
In agriculture, pest mites have a great diversity of natural enemies, but especially predatory mites, with potential for use in biological control Cited by: 1.
Biocontrol uses parasitoids, predators, and pathogens to manage insect and mite pest populations. For mite pests, it started primarily by predators than other bioagents.
Two types. Biological control relies on living organisms that must have food and shelter and that interact with the pests, the crop, and the other environmental factors. The pest manager *a farmer. This book is the best-ever practical guide to the identification and biology of beneficial organisms that control pests.
Growers, pest control advisers, landscape professionals, home gardeners, pest management teachers and students, and anyone fascinated by natural enemies and their prey will want this book to find, identify, and use natural enemies to control pests.
Prospects for Biological Control of Plant Feeding Mites and Other Harmful Organisms will compile important developments with predatory mite species within these families, which are emerging as important tools for integrated pest management.

This review categorizes the diversity of life-styles in the Phytoseiidae, based primarily on food habits and related biological and morphological traits. The life-styles proposed are as follows: Type I, specialized predators of species represented by the species; Type II, selective predators of tetranychid mites Cited by: Beard JJ.

limonicus, Am. swirskii, and E. gallicus have been commercially used as biological control agents of this pest. However, biological control of B. tabaci with the use of predatory mites Cited by: 8. Predatory mites are important control agents of pest mites in North American orchards.
The western United States native, Galendromous occidentalis, is a primary biocontrol agent of pest mites. Donald A. Chant, 4 books Martin H. Muma, 2 books John E. Dunley, 2 books Gupta, S. K., 1 book N. Kuznet͡sov, 1 book Leonid Aleksandrovich Kolodochka, 1 book Tuomas S. Kostiainen, 1 book John J.

Additions to the roster of mites that affect pests (including weeds and pathogens), and of pests. Biological control success of pest mites was rated excellent in 11 of 44 vineyards, good in 27, and poor in only six sites. Predaceous mites appeared to be the principal agents regulating spider mites Cited by: The extent intraspecific variation among 42 morphological characters within Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Acari: Phytoseiidae) is examined.
Neoseiulus californicus is an important biological control agent used commercially worldwide to control pest mites in many crops.
The correct diagnosis of this species is thus of prime importance for successful biological control Cited by: The invasive chilli thrips, Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood poses a significant risk to many food and ornamental crops in the Caribbean, Florida and Texas. We evaluated two species of phytoseiid mites Cited by: Tuomas S.
Kostiainen has written: 'The Phytoseiidae as biological control agents of pest mites and insects' -- subject(s): Phytoseiidae, Mites as biological pest control agents. The scope of biological control; The historial development of biological control; Population ecology - historical development; The concept and significance of natural control; Some biological control concepts and questions; Biological characteristics of entomophagous adults; Developmental stages of parasites; Systematics in relation to biological control Reviews: 1.
Moreover, native predators and parasites can also play a key role in pest management. Predatory mites have been used as biological control agents for years. But their use has been limited to predators of the family Phytoseiidae.
So, the book looks at other groups of predatory mites that could be used in biological control. Get this from a library. Prospects for biological control of plant feeding mites and other harmful organisms. [Daniel Carrillo; Gilberto J de Moraes; Jorge E Peña;] -- The history of biological control of harmful organisms by mites is marked by outstanding achievements with a few natural enemies.
The focus has been mostly on mites of the family Phytoseiidae. The insect-parasitic (entomopathogenic or insecticidal) nematodes, Steinernema and Heterorhabditis, infect soil-dwelling insects and occur naturally or can be purchased.
As with all biological control agents, it is especially important to match the correct microbial control agent with the correct pest .
