Title: Evaluating Pyemotes dryas (Vitzthum 1923)(Acari: Pyemotidae) as a parasite of the southern pine beetle

Author: Moser, John C.; Kielczewski, B.; Wisniewski, J.; Balazy, S.

Date: 1978

Source: Intl. J. Acar., Vol. 4(2): 67-70

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Populations of Pyemotes dryas (Vitzthum 1923) from Poland were bioassayed for potential use in the biological control of the southern pine beetle in the United States. The mite apparently rides and attacks a wide range of European bark beetles that attack conifers and readily consumes brood of the southern pine beetle. However, it is not phoretic on the southern pine beetle or six other associated beetles.
