By the way of their life phytoseiid mites can be divided into heobionts and phytobionts (the most part of them). Some phytoseiid species are used as effective biological control agents of diverse agriculturally most important pests. About 18 genera and more than one hundred species of the family were determined in Ukraine (Kolodochka, 2006). In Odessa and Odessa region phytoseiid mites almost have not been studied.
