The Varroa mite, Varroa jacobsonii, is an external parasite of honey bees.
Varroa mites were first found in Massachusetts in 1988, and by 1992 had spread through the eastern half of the state and were slowly moving west, although the heaviest infestation continues to be in the cranberry growing areas.
Mites, which are killed or stunned by appropriate hive treatment, ApistanTM strips, for instance, will fall to the bottom of the hive, pass through the screen, and be caught on the paper.

Measurements of persea mite feeding damage to leaves that have fallen from avocado trees to the ground indicates that average feeding damage to the leaf surface of fallen leaves is 15-22%.
This predator is commonly found feeding within persea mite nests in late summer and predation by six-spotted thrips may hasten the decline of persea mite populations.
Studies indicate that this predator is not closely associated with dense web-producing spider mites that have clumped distributions, and it does not show a strong tendency to remain in spider mite nests.

The mites and ticks, order Acarina or Acari, belong to the Arachnida and are among the most diverse and successful of all the invertebrate groups, although some way behind the insects.
Some of the plant pests include the so-called Spider mites (family Tetranychidae) and the Gall mites (family Eriophyidae).
Among the species that attack animals there are members of the Sarcoptic Mange mites (family Sarcoptidae), which burrow under the skin.

 Dust Mite
House dust mites have been known to be associated with allergies since the 1960's and have become a focus over the years for their involvement with respiratory ailments.
Adult mites are described as white to a light tan in colour; they are difficult to see with the naked eye, as they measure only 0.5mm in length, and the developmental stages are smaller.
Identification of dust mites is performed with the use of light microscopy and taxonomic keys, after the specimen has been extracted by flotation and/or sieving methods from the dust substrate and especially prepared on a glass slide.

Although mites may occasionally overwinter in crop residues, BGM primarily overwinter in the crowns of winter wheat and native grasses and TSM primarily overwinter in alfalfa and other broadleaf plants bordering the fields.
Mite infestations occurring early in the season should be carefully scouted during the rest of the season.

 House dust mite allergy
House mite allergy is a hypersensitive reaction to proteins in the excretion of dust mites.
The mites prefer to live in beds and, because we spend about a third of the day in bed, we inhale large quantities of dust mite allergens.
The excretion from the mites dries out and can be launched into the air when someone walks over a rug, sits down in a chair, or shakes the bed clothes, giving allergic people immediate symptoms.

 Mite   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
It is known that temperature and humidity play an important role in house-dust mite physiology and consequently there is considerable interest in reducing mite populations in dwellings by controlling the internal environment.
However, the mite's micro-environment within bedding is different from the room environment, although coupled to it, and is constantly changing.
Combined with a dynamic model of mite physiology, this is being used to predict mite response to changes, such as in building insulation, the heating/ventilation regime, occupant behaviour, etc. In this way the most effective and widely applicable measures for reducing mite populations can be determined.

Fortunately for dust mites, high relative humidities needed for survival occur in our beds (where the moisture comes from our bodies) and at floor level (particularly in carpeting) where cooler temperatures cause humidity levels to rise into the critical mite-supporting range.
Another way of controlling dust mites is to remove carpeting in the bedroom of dust-mite sensitive patients and replace with either hardwood flooring or vinyl.
