Bulb scale mite (Steneotarsonemus laticeps) on narcissus in the United Kingdom

, : Bulb scale mite (Steneotarsonemus laticeps) on narcissus in the United Kingdom. Acta Horticulturae (47): 157-163

The present status of Steneotarsonemus laticeps (Halbert) as a pest of narcissus in the United Kingdom is considered, and an estimate of the recent loss of crop value caused by the mite is given. Previous attempts to control the mite at various stages in the production of field-grown bulbs and forced flowers are reviewed. Assessments of the usefulness of methyl bromide as a fumigant for dry bulbs are presented.
