Investigation on the preferential distribution of chilli mite, Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks) under field conditions was studied at the Department of Zoology, CCSHAU, Hisar during 2014, 2015 and 2016. The preference for top leaves, followed by middle and bottom leaves was shown by P. latus on chilli crop. Top leaves harbored 37, 42 & 46 percent mites followed by 34, 32 & 33 percent on the middle leaves and 30, 25 & 22 percent on the bottom leaves of chilli crop during 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively. This results predict that top canopy of chilli plant is the suitable place for the growth and development of P. latus.
