Hello,

Would Answer E be correct if instead of "predators," it specified Typhlodromus' relation to the C Mites?

Hi gavelgirl!

Yes, answer choice (E) would be better if it referred more specifically to Typhlodromus being used to control cyclamen mites on strawberry plants. As it is, answer choice (E) is much too broad to be supported by the passage. We only have one very specific example of when a predator can be more effective at controlling a pest population than pesticides, but that does not mean that this is generally the case.

Hope this helps!

Best,
Kelsey
