Diseases of Mites and Ticks

Diseases of Mites and Ticks

By Jan Bruin and Leo P. S. Geest

Diseases of Mites and Ticks PDF. The current collection of twenty-four papers is a mixture of primary research articles and literature reviews, presenting a broad overview of the developments in about all possible aspects of acarine diseases, stretching from basic pathology to microbial pest control. The pathogens include fungi, bacteria, and protozoa (as well as an occasional virus and unidentified organism), the hosts are mites and ticks from a great variety of taxa (e.g., Eriophyidae, Ixodidae, Oribatida, Phytoseiidae, Psoroptida, Tarsonemidae, Tetranychidae, Varroidae). These taxa include many infamous mites and ticks, which cause tremendous economical losses throughout the world, for example in greenhouse and field-grown agricultural crops, life stock (cattle, sheep), apiculture, and man. The taxa also include commercially available biocontrol agents, whose mass rearings need to be protected against pathogens.

  • First comprehensive book on the subject of pathogens and pathology of diseases of acari (mites and ticks)
  • Use of pathogens to control veterinary ticks and agricultural mite pests is a hot issue, so this broad overview is timely
  • The mix of literature reviews and primary data contributions cover almost all possible aspects of the subject
