El comportamiento foretico de los acaros es muy comun, principalmente en las especies del suborden Mesostigmata el cual ha sido relacionado con el orden Coleoptera (Quintero y Romero, 2014), dado que dicha asociacion les permite a los acaros recorrer grandes distancias de manera segura, y poder colonizar nuevas y extensas areas mas aptas; es por ello que estrategicamente se adhieren a su vector sin causarle ningun problema o dano.
