Abstract

Mites of Tyrophagus dimidiatus (Kenaga Kona dani in Japanese) were added to powdered milk, which was stored in sealed cans filled either with nitrogen (group Nm) or with air (group Am). Two sets of cans containing no powdered milk but mites served for control. In one set cans were filled with nitrogen (group N) and in the other with air (group A). The mites were examined for survival and reproduction inside the cans of the four groups.
As a result, all mites were found dead within 12 hours in group Nm and control group N and within 48 hours in group Am. Nothing unusual was observed at all on the mites of control group A.
