predation Phytoseiidae Eutetranychus orientalis biological control


Nine phytoseiid species were tested to evaluate their potential as predators of Eutetranychus orientalis (Klein). Typhlodromus athiasae Porath and Swirski, Amblyseius barkeri (Hughes) and A. olivi Nasr and Abou-Awad had a shorter developmental period than T. transvaalensis (Nesbitt). T. athiasae and A. barkeri showed the highest oviposition rates. A. olivi showed a low rate of oviposition although T. transvaalensis has not able to lay any eggs. Immatures survival of T. talbii Athias-Henriot, T. balanites El-Badry, Amblyseius badryi Yousef and El-Borolossy, A. cabonus (Schicha) and A. lindquisti Schuster and Pritchard were very low on E. orientalis and all failed to develop to adulthood.
