The Phytoseiidae are usually lightly sclerotized, relatively fast moving mites found in association with Tetranychidae, Tenuipalpidae, Eriophyidae and other phytophagous mites. They are predacious on the eggs, larval stages and adults of these injurious mites, some of which have become major pests in orchards all over the world.
