Since 1950 acaricides have been tested at Beltsville for their effectiveness on field-grown roses(Henneberry et al. 1961). Occasionally conducting these tests was hindered when populations of green two-spotted spider mites, Tetranychus telarius(L.), designated as T. urticae (Koch) by European investigators, failed to develop even after artificial infestation or were lost owing to defoliation or heavy rains. Because of the difficulty in maintaining mite populations, and since we felt that limiting tests to the laboratory was undesirable, we turned to a method of testing which is carried out partly in the field and partly in the laboratory.
