Mite Screening Tool

About the Resource

Mite Screening Tool provides identification support for field screening and identification, as well as laboratory identification. The characters used in the field key for this tool may not always allow identification to species due the fact that the vast majority of mite species are microscopic, and therefore are not visible without high magnification. A laboratory-based key to allow species identification of mite palm pests will be added to this tool in the future.
