Abstract

Description of male and immatures of Eriophyes mangiferae (Sayed) are presented. A minimum of 15 days was required for the life cycle of the bud mite reared on mango seedlings. Duration of different immatures was determined in the laboratory at 26+/-1 °C and R. H. of 70%. Mite population density reached its peak in late May and October. About eight generations might occur over the year. The phytoseiid mite, Amblyseius swirskii (Athias-Henriot) was the most commonly encountered predator associated with this pest.
