Predicting the potential distribution area of Neoseiulus barkeri can provide a good understanding of the habitat range of the N. barkeri and assess the possibility of overwintering in the release site (Khadem et al. 2021). The study of the habitat of N. barkeri can be used to determine whether it can overwinter in released areas and to assess its population dynamics (Abdellah et al. 2021).
