Population changes of Panonychus citri (McG.) were studied during 1966-67 at Addo, eastern Cape Province, in an orange orchard that had not been treated with insecticides or acaricides since 1961. The maximum numbers occurred between March and June and between August and September. Variations in numbers were related to fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity.
