Abstract: Entomopathogenic fungi and predatory mites are promising candidates for biological control of insect pests. Due to their complementary interactions, a potential synergy effect in pest control can be expected if they are used in combination. However, their compatibility has always been controversial, which has restricted their combined utilization for pest control in the field. In this paper, we summarized the research progresses in interactions between entomopathogenic fungi and predatory mites and the status of their combined applications, and discussed the existing problems and prospect for future research.

Key words: entomopathogenic fungi, predatory mites, predator-fungus interactions, combined application
