Biological studies of Amblyseius olivi, a new predator of eriophyid mites infesting olive trees in Egypt (Acari: Phytoseiidae)

Biological studies of Amblyseius olivi, a new predator of eriophyid mites infesting olive trees in Egypt (Acari: Phytoseiidae)

Entomophaga, 311: 99-103

The development of individuals of the phytoseiid Amblyseius olivi on all stages of the olive pest Eriophyes olivi, nymphs of Tetranychus urticae and on pollen grains of castor (Ricinus communis) at 27 degrees C and 70-80% RH was studied in Egypt. The average developmental period was shorter in individuals reared on the eriophyid (4.7 days) than on the tetranychid (5.7 days) or the pollen (4.9 days). The lifespan of adult females was about 33 days on all diets.
