Garlic is one of several important vegetable species grown in the Czech Republic. Ditylenchus dipsaci (Kühn, 1857) (Tylenchida: Anguinidae), Aceria tulipae (Keifer, 1938) (Acari: Eriophyidae), Rhizoglyphus echinopus (Fumouze & Robin, 1868) (Acari: Acaridae) and R. robinii Claparède, 1869 (Acari: Acaridae), Suillia lurida (Meigen, 1830) (Diptera: Heleomyzidae) are common pest species found on garlic plants in the Czech Republic. Nowadays Aceria tulipae (Keifer, 1938) is beginning to be considered as the one causing damage. Plodia interpunctella (Hübner, 1813) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) and Nemapogon granellus (Linnaeus, 1758) (Lepidoptera: Tineidae) are small moths which are common pests usually found on stored products. Both of these species larvae were found as the uncommon pests of stored garlic in the Czech Republic in January 2016. Until now, their harmfulness on stored garlic has been reported only from Central America.
