Abstract:In laboratory studies Kelthane® (1,1-bis(p-chlorophenyl)- 2,2,2-trichloroethanol) residues were more effective against adult and immature forms of organophosphate-resistant and susceptible strains of the two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus telarius (L.)), than Aramite® (2-(p-tert-butylphenoxy) isopropyl 2- chloroethyl sulfite). Both materials were effective against all immature stages of either strain when treated by dipping. Aramite residues were not effective against active immature forms of either strain. Eggs, a few minutes to 24 hours old, of either strain were killed by dipping in a suspension of either material. A few eggs treated with Kelthane hatched but the larvae were killed.
