mite species is white-color when born, achieves a body size of 0.5 mm, and
is pear-shaped. After feeding, it takes on the color of its prey (usually
red or brown).
fallacis will feed on spider mites, tumid mites, and other pest
species lives for approximately 20 days, with females laying a lifetime
average of 40-60 eggs. Once the eggs hatch, N. fallacis
nymphs start feeding on the pest mite's eggs, larvae, and adults. An
advantage to this predator is that, when pest mites (=prey) are not
present, they can maintain themselves by feeding on pollen.
