Abhishek Shukla and GG Radadia

Studies on the biology of yellow mite, Polyphagotarsonemus latus was carried out during May-June, 2015-16 revealed that the mite passed through four phases viz., egg, larva, quiescent and adult. The egg stage lasted on an average 2.38 days. Male emerged as an adult a little bit earlier than the female. The pre-oviposition, oviposition and post-oviposition periods for unmated female were 1.71, 7.90 and 1.68 days and for mated female 1.51, 7.50 and 1.74 days, respectively. The rate of egg laying per day and fecundity for unmated female was higher than mated female. The yellow mite remains throughout the crop season under polyhouse and the peak activities were noticed during 6th week second week of February.
