Acari Tetranychus cinnabarinus water loss egg effect of hatching webbing


Removal of eggs of the carmine spider mite, Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Boisduval) from the webbing into which they are deposited significantly reduces egg hatchability under very low (0-38 %) as well as very high (100 %) relative humidity conditions, at 24°C and 30°C. Hatch is not affected at intermediate humidities. Two web-associated mechanisms whereby the egg may be protected by the silk or fecal pellets deposited thereon are postulated.
