Please register for Mite Identification and Management Webinar on Apr 27, 2017 10:00 AM AEST at:
Mites are small to minute and can be either pests or predators. Some groups of mites are relatively easy to identify at a general level, e.g. spider mites. However, other groups are more obscure and so tiny that a devoted microscope is required to observe them with confidence. This webinar will cover the major pest mite groups likely to be encountered in a production nursery, including spider mites, tarsonemid mites (broad mite and cyclamen mite), flat mites and eriophyid mites. Management of these groups is best completed using many strategies; cultural strategies to reduce pest populations, biological and chemical applications. Predatory mites are also relatively easy to observe and there are many species that are commercially available as biological control agents against other mites, thrips, whiteflies and fungus gnats. These species will be discussed including how to integrate cultural, biological and chemical management options to reduce pest mite populations.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
