Abstract

The effect of relative humidities (RH) on Agistemus terminalis (Quayle) (Acari: Stigmaeidae) was studied in the laboratory in China. A range of RH values between 32.5% and 100% did not affect the duration of development, but oviposition rates, egg hatching and survival of all stages were influenced. Regression analyses were used to establish the effect of RH on parameters of mite biology.
