These phytophagous mites have haplodiploid genetics and live gregariously in woven nests on the undersurfaces
of leaves of perennial grasses.
For plants scheduled to have their leaves damaged, we rubbed the undersurfaces
of each cotyledon lightly with carborundum powder (850 mesh) using a cotton swab, 7 d after sowing.
