Mites are among the most important arthropods in greenhouses, both as pests causing economic injury to greenhouse crops, and as natural enemies used in the biological control of pest insects and other mites. Because of their minute size, mites are much less well known than insects.This book describes the biology, identification and control of such mites and the topics covered include an introduction to the Acari, illustrated keys to orders, families and selected species, the control of pest mites, and the role of beneficial mites in biological control. The book will be of interest to those working in entomology, crop protection and horticulture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"While the majority of publications in this area focus on a particular species of mites, this book is an overview of the fauna, ecology, distribution, and economic impact of all important groups of mites that inhabit greenhouses. This makes this pioneering publication very useful, particularly for pest control specialists."--Acarina
"The book will be a nice addition to personal or institutional libraries."--Experimental and Applied Acarology
"This book contains a wealth of information particularly useful for entomologists and students with training in microscopy and monitoring methods."--Entomological News
"This book can be considered as a useful pocket book of interest to those working in entomology, crop protection and horticulture."--Acarologia
