This study presents the results of research on the ecology of microdispids mites in Turkmenistan. In particular, 8 species of microdispids mites were found in the soil and anthills. The importance of these mites in the decomposition of plant residues and in soil-forming processes is shown. Data on seasonal changes in the abundance and vertical distribution of microdispids mites in irrigated soils are presented. The phoretic relationship of microdispids mites with ants has been proven. Mushrooms adapted to grow in anthills serve as food for microdispids mites. The importance of anthills is indicated as a special place for shelter and a center of mass reproduction of mites, therefore, as a specific biotope in arid conditions.
