The harvest mite: a seasonal enemy of man and domestic animals

Notes are provided on the biology, recognition, injuriousness (to man and domestic animals) and control of Trombicula autumnalis (Neotrombicula autumnalis) in France. The control methods discussed include the use of protective clothing and repellents and the application of acaricides (especially benzoximate, bromopropylate, dicofol, flubenzimine, tetradifon and tetrasul) to mite habitats.
