The life cycle of a pest is closely related to damaged plant buds. The mite can feed in the middle of the buds of black currants, red currants and gooseberries. It causes the greatest harm to black currants. Buds infested with mites do not bloom, and their population can reach 80%. In addition, the tick can tolerate the terry black currant. Currant mites and terry are spread mainly with planting material.

Tick ​​females hibernate in the middle of the buds and lay 5 to 100 eggs there. Females of the first generation lay eggs at the beginning of flowering currants.

Females live 20-45 days, eggs develop 6-12 days, larval development lasts from 7 to 30 days, and at the end of flowering the first generation appears.

The kidney mite develops in 5-6 generations. Large buds can contain from 8 to 30 thousand mites. Kidneys with a large number of mites differ quite well from healthy ones by their rounded shape and increased size. The currant mite, in addition to planting material, can be carried by birds, insects and people.

Control measures for currant kidney mites

  1. Currants in new areas should be planted only with healthy planting material.
  2. Cuttings for propagation of currants should be taken only from healthy bushes.
  3. Spraying bushes infected with a tick during their transition from old buds to new ones. Effective karbofos and sulfur preparations, as well as infusions of garlic, onions and pine needles.
  4. With a small number of inhabited buds, they can be plucked and destroyed, and with strong colonization, the entire aerial part of the plant can be cut off.
