Spider mite webbing. 2. The effect of webbing on egg hatchability
1975 - Volume: 17 Issue: 2 pages: 270-273
Removal of eggs of the carmine spider mite, Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Boisduval) from the webbing into which they are deposited significantly reduces egg hatchability under very low (0-38 %) as well as very high (100 %) relative humidity conditions, at 24°C and 30°C. Hatch is not affected at intermediate humidities. Two web-associated mechanisms whereby the egg may be protected by the silk or fecal pellets deposited thereon are postulated.
