Abstract:Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) is found in arid and humid areas worldwide, including semi-tropical and temperate  America, and arid areas of southern California and southern Europe. N. californicus is a predatory mite that is an effective biological control for Tetranychid mites in crops such as strawberries, corn, grapes, roses, fruit trees and ornamentals. Recently commercially produced, N. californicus has proven effective in the integrated pest management of pest mites in scientific trials, attracting the attention of both entomologists and the agricultural industry. In this paper, we summarize advances in research on N. californicus both at home and abroad, focusing on its reproductive biology, reproduction on alterative foods in captivity, and its deployment against crop pests.
