Citrus bud mite

Aceria sheldoni

This minute yellowish or pinkish mite (reaching only 0.16 mm in length) is active throughout the year with a full generation lasting just 10 days in the summer, maybe twice that in the winter. Each female lays up to 50 eggs which hatch after 2–5 days. The animal goes through 4 pre-imaginal instars before reaching maturity.
