Abstract

Mass rearing of different phytoseiid mites had been attempted using tetranychid mites (McMurthy and Scriven, 1965; Hoy et al., 1982; Karuppachamy et al., 1988; Anil, 1990). However, the mass rearing of Amblyseius longispinosus (Evans) on Tetranychus macfarlanei Baker and Pritchard has not been adequately studied and also the method employed earlier were a bit complicated, time consuming and difficult to commercialise. Therefore keeping these points in view, an experiment was conducted under laboratory condition.
