Citrus rust mite, Phyllocoptruta oleivora (Ashmead), is a major pest of citrus in Israel. Five species of predatory mites: Amblyseius herbicolus Chant, Euseius victoriensis (Womersley), Euseius elinae (Schicha), Typhlodromus rickeri Chant and Euseius stipulatus (Athias-Henriot), were imported to improve the biological control of the pest. Mite rearing and sampling methods were developed and improved, and the predators were released. Recovery in some citrus orchards was recorded, but only E. victoriensis became established in the north of Israel.
