Tomato russet mite develops freely and quickly mainly on tomatoes and potatoes. The next places are occupied by black and red nightshades and eggplant. The mite can press both the upper and lower sides of the plant leaves. First, the lower leaves and branches of the plant begin to be damaged. It gradually spreads upwards. The affected branch becomes smooth with a brown color, yellow spots appear on the leaves, and the general color begins to turn brown. Infected flowers and small fruit buds and leaves dry up and fall off, large fruits have a web-like pattern and crack. In this article, the species composition, distribution, damage to plants and bioecology of the pest are covered in this article. The development characteristics of the russet mite by plant are presented, in which tomato, potato, and eggplant plants are the most common tomato russet mite in the analysis based on the table. In addition, the results of the research on the effect of the tomato russet mite on productivity in different growth periods are highlighted.
