Color changes may be noticeable in diapausing spider mite females. Diapausing T. urticae females are bright red, and diapausing T. pacificus females are bright orange. 4 on water balance. European red mite (Panonychus ulmi) females deposit summer eggs and winter (diapausing) eggs in different locations (Lees 1953, Cranham 1973). Diapausing eggs are laid on twigs of deciduous trees, and the summer eggs are laid on foliage. Individuals (eggs or adults) in a hibernal diapause typically have to experience a period of cold chill before the diapause is terminated.

Thelytoky is common in the tetranychid subfamily Bryobiinae (Helle 1985). Some genera contain both arrhenotokous and thelytokous species (Jeppson et al. 1975). Because males in the arrhenotokous Tetranychidae are haploid, any new mutations are immediately exposed to selection, whether the mutations are dominant or recessive. Selection on haploid males leads to a rapid loss of deleterious genes in the population. Arrhenotoky allows pesticide resistances to develop rapidly in spider mites because, if a haploid male is exposed to pesticides and he has a resistance allele, it will be selected for.

Cornell Univ. Agric. Exp. , 270, 1–35, 1945. ) vascular bundles. Photosynthesis and transpiration are affected by spider mite feeding. The amount of damage to epidermal cells, palisade cells, or spongy mesophyll cells depends on the location of the mites and whether they are feeding on the upper or lower leaf surfaces. Tetranychus urticae, the two-spotted spider mite, can suck the contents of 18 to 22 cells per minute while feeding, resulting in dry, brittle foliage when populations are high. Their feeding affects photosynthesis and greatly enhances transpiration, causing additional water loss.
