Data from: Evaluating the link between predation and pest control services in the mite world

Lise Roy, Adrien Taudière & Olivier Bonato
Pest regulation by natural enemies has a strong potential to reduce the use of synthetic pesticides in agroecosystems. However, the effective role of predation as an ecosystem service remains largely speculative, especially with minute organisms such as mites. Predatory mites are natural enemies for ectoparasites in livestock farms. We tested for an ecosystem-level control of the poultry pest Dermanyssus gallinae by other mites naturally present in manure in poultry farms, and investigated differences among farming...
