Abstract:High-gallonage sprays were applied to greenhouse roses heavily infested with two-spotted spider mites (Tetranychlls telarius (L.)) to determine the extent of resistance and what groups of compounds might afford practical control. The results indicate that resistance has developed to most of the materials previously used for mite control; these include Aramite® (2-(p-tert-butylphenoxy) isopropy! 2-chloroethyl-sulphite), chlorobenzilate, tetradison, tepp, malathion, and schradan. There is also evidence that cross resistance has developed to numerous pesticides, for many that have not previously been used were nevertheless ineffective.It is apparent from this study that compounds unrelated to previously used acaricides are effective against these resistant mites. BinapacryI, Eradex® (2,8-quinoxalinedithiol cyclic trithiocarbonate), and Bayer 86205 (6-methyl-2,8-quinoxalinedithiol cyclic carbonate) can be placed in this category but cannot be used at effective dosages because of phytotoxicity on roses. Pentac (bis(pentachloro-2,4-cyclopentadien-.5-yl), and Bidrin® (3-hydroxy--N,N-dimethyl-cis-croton-amide dimethyl phosphate) represent two dissimilar materials that show promise for control of resistant mites on roses. Pentac, with its low mammalian toxicity and lack of phytotoxicity, has already proven to be a highly practical and effective control.
