Abstract:Field trials of acaricides were made in 1963 and 1964 for the control of the European red mite, Panonychus ulmi (Koch), on apples. The materials were applied during the summer in 2 successive sprays from 7 to 10 days apart. Of the currently labeled acaricides, the best control was given by Kelthane® (1,1-bis(p-chlorophenyl)-2,2,2- trichloroethanol), Morestan® (6-methyl-2,3-quinoxalinedithiol cyclic carbonate), tetradifon, demeton, and Guthion ® (O,O -dimethyl S-(4-oxo-1,2,3-benzotriazin-3 (4H) - ylmethyl) phosphorodithioate). Other very effective compounds were binapacryl, dinocap, chlorobenzilate, and phosphamidon.
Of the experimental materials Animert® (p-chlorophenyl 2,4,5-trichlorophenyl sulfide), Bidrin® (3-hydroxy-N,N-dimethyl-cis-croton-amide dimethyl phosphate), dimethoate, Bayer 37344 (4- (methylthio) -3,5-xylyl methylcarbamate), Union Carbide 20047A (5-chloro-6-oxo-endo- 2 norbornanecarbonitrile O-(methylcarbamoyl)oxime), and Hooker HRS 1654 (decachlorobi-2,4-cyclopentadien-1-yl) were outstanding.
No phytotoxicity was prominent with any of the treatments. Under Ohio conditions no real differences were noted with wettable powder and emulsifiable concentrate formulations of the various acaricides.
