Objective To investigate the breeding of the mite Tarsonemus granarius in the stored Chinese herb safflower. Methods Samples of Carthamus tinctorius were collected from Wuhu, Huainan and Xuancheng in China. The mites T. granarius were isolated with directicopy and waternacopy, and identified and counted under the light microscope. Results The mites T. granarius were found in the stored Chinese herb safflower. The breeding rate and breeding density was 6.50% (13/200) and 6.12 heads/g (796 heads/130 g), respectively. The composition of adult mites accounted for 85.80%, young mites 12.82% and eggs 1.38%. Conclusion Our findings suggest that the mite T. granarius breed in the stored Chinese herb safflower, and this condition requires our attention to prevent and control.
