I am looking for a way to collect mites from plant tissue.   I would like to try to use a method that will allow me to get a number of mites quickly and efficiently without removing them one at a time.  Does anyone have an idea?
Thanks

Hi pundir,

Hi pundir,
 
Thank you very much for your reply.  I will look those over.  Do you work with mites?  I primarily work with viruses, so it is my first time to try and deal with mite vectors.

I work on mites but not in

I work on mites but not in plants but animals. I usually collect the skin scrappings and then digest those in KOH solution, this way skin is digested and mites can be examined easily under microscope. I think you can also use KOH to digest plant material and study mites, however if you need live mites, this will not work. You can also refer to this manual online
