The biological control of the McDaniel spider mite, which is a pest on apple tree foliage, by a predacious mite species, which feeds upon it, is represented by a continuous-discrete time hybrid model incorporating temperature effects explicityland mite metamorphosis implicitly. The results of this model can be shown to provide good agreement when compared with relevant field data.
