The redlegged earth mite is one of the most destructive pests in broadacre crops and pastures in southern Australia. Cesar Australia is calling on growers and advisors to share their experience dealing with the redlegged earth mite to guide future management of this pest.

Cesar Australia is asking growers and advisors to complete a short redlegged earth mite management survey.

The information gathered from this survey will help to update management recommendations, improving the best management practice advice and resistance management strategies for redlegged earth mite.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and should take less than 10 minutes. Participants also receive early access to Cesar Australia’s RLEM online training modules.

The initial training module covers:

  • Redlegged earth mite and other pest mite Identification
  • Redlegged earth mite distribution and reporting
  • Host preferences and damage characteristics.
