Assessment of techniques for marking Galendromus occidentalis (Nesbitt)
Biocontrol Science and Technology 26 (6), 866-871
Abstract: The negative effects and duration of an immunomark (egg albumin) and fluorescent powder for marking phytoseiids were examined. Neither mark caused significant mortality, run-off, or reduction in fecundity. The fluorescent powder mark was more durable, but neither mark has sufficient durability to be used in a long-term mark-recapture study.
