Abstract Share this page

Mite species setting on apple have been determined upon the analyses of more than 500 apple samples collected from fruit storage. All tasted samples were infested with stored product mites - both acaroid and predatory species, and also plantfeeding mites - eriophyids, tarsonemids and tetranychids (mainly wintering forms) accompanied with their predators. Althogether, over 22 species representating various families and genera were found. The most frequently and numerously mite colonized places of stored apples were peduncles, peduncle and calyx hollows and cavieties and damages of fruit cuticule caused by isects, fugi and other pathogens. The open and intact apple skin was usually free of mites
