The silver mite of peach, Aculus cornutus (Banks), also attacks almond trees. These mites, which are a species of leaf gall mites, are extremely small, flesh- colored leaf feeders, which stipple other- wise healthy green leaves with pin-point chlorotic spots. The symptoms resemble thrip or leafhopper damage. Orchard Pest Management provides a practical reference on tree fruit IPM. Insect hosts, life stages, life histories, damage, monitoring, biological control, and management are described for most major and minor pests in orchards as well as major natural enemies.

The mite Varroa destructor is a serious pest of honey bees, contributing to colony collapse disorder in commercial hives. The mite is an obligate external parasite, able to reproduce only in bee colonies. It directly weakens its host by sucking up the bee's fat, and can spread RNA viruses including deformed wing virus. Heavy infestation causes Class: Arachnida. Lychee erinose mite (Aceria litchii) is a serious pest of lychee foliage, flowers and l can be achieved with a strict program of suitable miticides. Macadamia nutborer. Macadamia nutborer (Cryptophlebia ombrodelta) damages lychee, logan, macadamia and many ornamentals. Control many be manages by biological and chemical methods.

Chapter 18 (Page no: ) Insects and mites. This chapter presents the following insect and mite pests of peach: direct insect pests (Oriental fruit moth, Grapholita molesta; codling moth, Cydia pomonella; peach twig borer, Anarsia lineatella; tufted apple bud moth, Platynota idaeusalis; plum curculio, Conotrachelus nenuphar; scarab beetles; plant bugs (Miridae); stink bugs (Pentatomidae.

At least 20 different insects, mites and diseases may attack peach trees. Unfortunately, they are not all present at the same time but appear at different times throughout the growing season.

This makes it difficult to apply two or three sprays and harvest unblemished fruit. Spider mite populations are reduced by cool, wet conditions early in the season.

Considerable natural control is provided by lady beetles (Stethorus spp.) and minute pirate bugs (Orius spp.). Predator mites such as Typhlodromus spp.

Peach twig borer, leafrollers, aphids, eyespotted bud moth, stinkbugs Note: This is the most satisfactory time to apply green peach aphid-twig borer combination sprays. Avoid pyrethroids (group 3) at this timing as they may flare spider mites. Monitor peach twig borer with pheromone traps.

This makes it difficult to apply two or three sprays and harvest unblemished fruit. Piles of old newspapers are a haven for mites. Old storage boxes filled with paper files also provide a home for these tiny pests. Left to their own devices, mites can cause itching and skin irritation from bites, and may eventually ruin valuable documents and old books.

Follow these steps to exterminate them. Psocids, also called book lice although they are not truly lice, live in warm, moist places. They feed on mold or fungi and if found in decaying organic material, as well as grains, insects, and starches like book binding glue it is the result of psocids eating the mold and/or fungi growing on these items.

Most insect pests are mon- itored by visually inspecting trees for insects or their damage. Traps baited with pheromones can be used to monitor activity of the pecan nut case- bearer and the lesser peach tree borer.

Healthy plants can survive some insect and dis- ease damage better than can stressed plants.

While there are other peach tree pests, including leafhoppers, white peach scale, mites, and aphids, none of these is as big a problem as the peach tree borer.

This troublesome insect—its scientific name is Synanthedon exitiosa —is not only fond of peaches, : Michelle Ullman. UC IPM Pest Management Guidelines.

This comprehensive and enduring resource on entomopathogens and Reviews: 1. The peachtree borer (Synanthedon exitiosa), the lesser peachtree borer (Synanthedon pictipes), and the shothole borer (Scolytus rugulosus) are pests of peaches.

Of these, the peachtree borer and lesser peachtree borer are the more serious pests. Peach Leaf Curl Peach leaf curl disease is caused by the fungus Taphrina deformans.

Peach leaf curl does not occur regularly on most peach and plum trees, but it can be a serious disease. Standard fungicide sprays used to control other diseases, such as brown rot, normally control this disease. the citrus pest mites are almost invisible to the naked eye.

These mites pierce plant surface cells with their mouth parts and suck out the cell contents. The damage is typical for each pest mite. Citrus red mite Citrus red mite, which damages both the leaves and fruit, is one of the world’s worst pests.

Pests [PDF] Fruittree Leafroller on Ornamental and Fruit Trees, UC IPM [PDF] Ferrisia gilli: A Mealybug Pest of Pistachios and Other Decidious Crops, David Haviland, Robert Beede, Kris Godfrey, Kent Daane Goals for reducing insect and mite damage in home orchards are to: Protect trees and crops from substantial damage; Make it simple and easy.

More than 35 species of insects and mites are pests of pepper. However, of these only 12 species occur in North Carolina, and only 7 species may be considered of economic importance. These are the European corn borer, corn earworm, beet armyworm, fall armyworm, pepper maggot, green peach aphid, and the tobacco hornworm.

The use of broad-spectrum insecticides for other pests can cause high infestations of peach silver mite. Organically Acceptable Methods Sulfur sprays are acceptable for organically certified crops, but will reduce predator mite populations.These pests burrow and feed underneath the bark on the sapwood, weakening the tree and leading to death.

Borers may target the graft location (in young peach trees) for laying eggs as well as damaged or sunken areas, and even a few inches below the soil line. Grubs have cream-colored bodies.For the most part, peach silver mite is usually considered beneficial to have in the orchard because it serves as a food source for mite predators.

Unless peach silver mite numbers are high enough (hundreds to thousands per leaf) that some defoliation is observed, no treatment is necessary.
