Panonychus citri-1.jpg
  • Panonychus citri (McGregor), is an economically important pest with a wide range of host plants (111 species recorded) and worldwide distribution. In addition, it is the most important allergen producing agent affecting citrus fruit farmers with asthma and rhinitis and a common sensitizing allergen in children living near citrus orchards. Although biological control of P. citri has proven successful in some horticulture crops, chemical acaricides have always played the central role in its control in fields.
  • The polyphagous species within the family Tetranychidae such as Tetranychus urticae, P. ulmi, and P. citri, are able to develop resistance to various acaricides rapidly due to their short life cycle, abundant progeny and arrhenotokous reproduction, and thus their control becomes exceedingly challenging[1] [2].
