Abstract

The developmental times, food consumption, fecundity and adult size of Hypoaspis miles were studied in the laboratory using Acarus siro, Lycoriella solani and Heteropeza pygmaea as food sources. Hypoaspis miles successfully developed when fed on A. siro, and L. solani in the laboratory. Food types greatly affected predator development time, feeding capacity, female fecundity and adult size. Statistically significant differences were recorded for all biological aspects of Hypoaspis miles. Acarus siro and Lycoriella solani were proved to be the most suitable type of food for the predator mite.
