Small phytoseid mite (about 0, $ 1 - 0, $ 15 mm), active predator of the red spider of the orchards and the vine, $ 1 / strong> of the common spider and the yellow spider of the vine .
This species, like the others of the Phytoseidae, lays isolated eggs or in small groups, on the lower page of the leaves, near the ribs. The development cycle of the Fitoseide is characterized by 5 stages: egg, larva hexapoda (neanid for some Authors), protoninfa, deutoninfa, adult. In the course of the year this Fitoseide performs, between May and September, three generations; winters as a fertilized adult female, in various shelters of the orchard / vineyard.
Like almost all phytoseids it is a lucifoga species; in fact, she loves the infected and less exposed parts of the foliage of the plant, where she finds a more humid and sheltered microclimate, more suited to her colonization. In environments where this Acarus is poorly present it can be introduced with the inoculative method.
In practice, they take from the orchards / vineyards where they are present, shoots or other wooden organs colonized by the Fitoseide, then they are introduced from the environment to be colonized during the phenological phase of the shoot. This method can also be used for other phytoseids.
Typhlodromus pyri controlla:
In pratica si prelevano, dai frutteti/vigneti dove sono presenti, tralci o altri organi legnosi colonizzati dal Fitoseide, quindi si immettono dall'ambiente da colonizzare durante la fase fenologica del germoglio.
Questo metodo può essere utilizzato anche per gli altri Fitoseidi.
