The mite fauna of bulbaceous ornamental plants in Ankara, Turkey was investigated during 2000-2002. A total of 12 astigmatid species belonging to 6 genera and 13 prostigmatid species belonging to 12 genera were identified. The pest potential of Rhgizoglyophus, Acarus and Tyrophagus spp. is considered and it was concluded that Rhizoglyphus robini (Claparéde) is the most common and harmful mite species occurring on bulbs of ornamental plants throughout the growing season and in storage. Acarus farris (Oudemans) and Tyrophagus putrescentiae (Schrank) were also abundant on bulbs. Hypopicheyla elongata Volgin (Cheyletidae) and Anoplocheylus taurcicus Berlese (Pseudocheylidae), and the astigmatid Tyrophagus robertsonae Lynch, 1989 (Tyroglyphidae) are new records for the Turkish fauna. Astigmatid species prefer bulbaceous plants and prostigmatids occasionally occur on the same host plants. Dahlia hybrida was the preferred and most populated bulbaceous host plants.

Abstract  

The Amblyomma cajennense tick species is considered one of the most important and widespread species in Brazil. It salivary secretion has been a target of several studies in biocenology, as the vector of diseases and in investigations related to antihemostatic properties and antitumor. To complement this investigation, neutron activation analysis (NAA) was applied to determine concentrations of elements in saliva samples of this tick species. The saliva samples (50–554 μL) were collected at Butantan Institute (São Paulo city, Brazil) and they were investigated using the IEA-R1 nuclear reactor at IPEN/CNEN-SP-Brazil. These data were compared with the values established for Amblyomma americanum and Amblyomma variegatum species emphasizing agreement only for Cl, K and Na with the A. americanum species, suggesting similarities in the mechanisms that regulate the osmotic pressure in this hematophagous animal. The knowledge of these limits contributes for tick saliva characterization as well as for the understanding of the many physiological processes, especially those related to salivary secretion.

The first winter-forms (deutogyne) of the eriophyid mite Calepitrimerus vitis appear in the vineyards of Szekszárd at the beginning of August and then the mites continuously take refuge in their hibernation shelters until end of October. Most winter-forms move to the buds during September. There is no connection between the moving period length and the yearly infection. In spite of the low mite population in the years with weak infestation (1999, 2001) the movement lasts the same late, until end of October. Ratio of the mites taking refuge in hibernation shelters is the best at the beginning of the moving period in August and it is decreasing continuously until October. Considering the directions of movement to the hibernation shelters, 74.7% of the mites seek for the hibernation shelters moved down and 25.3% of the mites moved up. A new method is described, useful for practical purposes in an effort to evaluate the number of mites moving towards their hibernation shelters.
