Relationship of phoretic mites (Acari: Tarsonemidae) to the bluestaining fungus, Ceratocystis minor, in trees infested by southern pine beetle (Coleoptera: Scolytidae)


, : Relationship of phoretic mites (Acari: Tarsonemidae) to the bluestaining fungus, Ceratocystis minor, in trees infested by southern pine beetle (Coleoptera: Scolytidae). Environmental Entomology, 154: 951-953

Field studies were conducted to determine if Tarsonemus krantzi and T. ips, phoretic on the scolytid Dendroctonus frontalis, are vectors of the fungus Ceratocystis minor which is usually introduced into trees by attacking adults of D. frontalis. The relationship between the population density of T. krantzi and T. ips and the amount of bluestain caused by C. minor, was determined on trees infested with D. frontalis in forests in Texas and Louisiana in 1984.
