Amblyseius (= Neoseiulus) fallacis (Garman)Typhlodromus pyri (Scheuten), T. caudaglans SchusterT. longipilus Nesbitt, T. vulgaris Ehara
Adults have a translucent teardrop-shape body (A). A dark mark in the form of an "H" sometimes appears within their body. This mark is red when they feed on European red mites and yellow when they feed on twospotted spider mites. They move very rapidly on the leaves. Nymphs are similar in appearance, and pale colored (B). Eggs are elliptical and clear white (C). Note: These beneficial predators are very sensitive to pyrethroid and carbamate insecticides. Observations suggest that certain populations may develop resistance.
