ticks, unlike mites, transmit many serious diseases. MITES Mites that attack humans with some frequency in the U.S. originate in a variety of habitats. Some, including the chicken mite and the tropical fowl mite, migrate to humans from birds. Others, such as grain mites and mushroom mites, are found in food materials or stored.

However, current knowledge on the morphology, biology, ecology, and economic importance of the eriophyid mites has been exhaustively compiled in a book entitled Eriophyid Mites: Their Biology. Some mites are carriers of human and animal diseases.

Plant-feeding mites cause damage by feeding on leaf tissues or by transmitting viral diseases. Scientists estimate that at le, and possibly as many as 48, different species of mites have been described. “Mite” is a term commonly used to refer to a group of insect-like organisms, some of which bite or cause irritation to humans.

While some mites parasitize animals, including man, others are scavengers, some feed on plants, and many prey on insects and other arthropods. In fact, there are nearly as many different types of mites as there are insects.

The book gives much attention to fundamental aspects of eriophyoid anatomy, behaviour, ecology and even systematics, as bases for understanding the ways of life of eriophyoid mites and their effects on host plants; in turn, this will lead to developing the most.
