Small whitish or yellow mite - ocher , predator of Acari , used in biological control programs on tree species (grapevine, apple tree and fruit trees) horticultural species (tomato, eggplant, courgette, strawberry) and ornamental plants .
This predatory mite is a generic phytoseid active mainly on eggs and adult forms of mites and that also feeds on other small insects, fungi, honeydew, vegetable exudates, pollen.
This particular trophic regime allows him a stable settlement on plants and makes it suitable for preventive introductions even in the absence of more typical prey. It is a species of European origin that is found in various natural habitats and agroecosystems, but in the latter its presence is considerably reduced due to conventional chemical treatments.
The predatory activity is carried out by all the stages, except the larval stage, but they are the mature females that, during the period of the oviposition, consume the greatest quantity of prey. The female of this phytoseide lays its eggs on the lower page of the leaves, near the ribs. This mite is widely used with excellent results, especially in greenhouses, for ornamental crops, horticulture, nurseries and seedbeds.
