Soil mites are known as soil indexes. The current study was conducted through 1392 in different crop fields including pomegranate, eggplant, cucumber, wheat, lettuce and alfalfa in varied parts of Varamin region, Mohammad Abad, Asgar Abad, Moein Abad, Pouinak, Jalil Abad, Ghalesin and Pishva roadway regarding to the most cultivation area of the crop in Varamin province. Totally, six species of soil mites belonging to six families were discovered which were included: Tyrophagus putrescentiae Shrank, Asperolaelaps rotundus Womersley, Nenteria stylifera Berlese, Hypoaspis aculeifer Canestrini, Scheloribates sp. and Epilohmannia cylindrica cylindrica Berlese. Statistical analysis by GLM model did not show any significant correlation between mite species diversity and soil components. Moreover, Spearman analysis showed total nitrogen % level could increase probability of mite occurrence. on the other hand, high levels of other mineral components of soil such as Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, B and P could decrease mite occurance. Populational assesment of soil mites would confirm the result of this study.
