Integrated Control of Plant-Feeding Mites


This working group has been approved in January 2006.


The emphasis within the group is to develop methods that help to reduce the amounts of pesticides, as well as other chemicals that may harm beneficial organisms, which are used for mite control in protected crops. This will include determining how to manipulate crop systems, use physical barriers and microbial control, augment predators and promote resistant crop varieties, all of which should be integrated into future systems of pest control. In efforts to improve mite control we shall promote cooperative projects, training courses and publications.


The results of the working group’s activities are published in bulletins:


IPM, biological control, spider mites, false spider mites, broad mites, russet mites, bud mites, Eriophyidae, Tetranychidae, Tenuipalpidae, Tarsonemidae, Acaridae
