The behaviour of Atractides burtoni (Acari: Hydrachnellae: Hygrobatidae) in drift samples from the Torch River, Saskatchewan, Canada



The behaviour of Atractides burtoni (Acari: Hydrachnellae: Hygrobatidae) in drift samples from the Torch River, Saskatchewan, Canada



Progress in Acarology 1: 423-431



A total of 192 drift net samples, collected in June and August 1982, were analysed to determine the drift patterns of water mites in the presence and absence of the bacterial larvicide Bacillus thuringiensis H-14 (B. thuringiensis subsp. israelensis), used for blackfly control. A. burtoni exhibited diurnal drift periodicity with a major peak occurring at 12.00 h and a minor peak at 24.00 h in the June samples. In the August samples, the diurnal patterns of A. burtoni were less obvious.
