Among fruit trees, the vines are the most economically affected crops, particularly red grape wine cultivars, which must be treated with chemical acaricides to deplete populations. Due to its small size it is common for mobile forms and eggs to be overlooked on the lower part of the foliage; overwintering populations that move to the young shoots and leaflets as soon as they begin to emerge produce the main economic damage.

Chilean false red mite Brevipalpus chilensis. Go chikensis distribution map The symptomatology and economic damage differ according to the host life cycle and cultivars within a species.
The mites are active throughout the year on citrus, but inactive brevipallpus winter on grapes Vitis viniferakiwifruit Actinidia deliciosa and other deciduous crops. Among grapes the most seriously damaged are the red wine varieties, whereas the white cultivars are unable to harbour high mite populations on the foliage and bunches. Table grape cultivars, with the exception of a couple of old red varieties, are practically not attacked by the mite and bunches can be harvested without mobile stages on the berries.

However, they are cholensis to post-harvest mandatory fumigation treatments to importing markets such as Mexico and the USA. The most commonly infested plant in central Chile is the privet Ligustrum sp. All stages of B. A yellow discoloration occurs on the infested tissues accompanied by a reduction in size of the newer foliage.
No twisting or distortion occurs.
Red wine cultivars suffer the most due to false mite feeding through the spring and summer. A brevipa,pus in size and losses of the new growth are observed from October onwards due to feeding by the adult females moving from their wintering sites in the trunk.
The forthcoming invasion of the leaves in early summer may produce leaf rolling and discoloration of the leaves; grape bunches are also damaged by feeding.
The species of citrus affected by the mite, including lemons Citrus limonoranges Citrus spp. Mite populations are very low on the leaves and fruits.

Kiwifruits, notwithstanding their late arrival in Chile, were immediately subject to mite colonization, thus vhilensis another quarantine problem to some importing countries, namely the USA. The mites overwinter as adult females, and shortly after bud growth in the very early spring, the females start crawling to shoots and leaf petioles. These chileneis may be scarred by feeding and call for a very early acaricide treatment because female movement to the growing foliage may be slow; usually two spray applications are needed.
