Residual control of Eutetranychus banksi (McGregor), lasted for 2 months or more with 440 and 410 oils, but populations were generally smaller following 440 oils than following 410 oils during the 1963-66 period. Populations were similar following 448 paraffinic oil, 443 naphthenic oil, and dicofol-malathion. For 2 months or more following 1.0% post-bloom oil, control of Texas citrus mites with 448 paraffinic oil was better than with 410 or 412 paraffinic oils. Smaller mite populations were generally found following 1.6% 448 paraffinic oil than 410 paraffinic oil applied in June, July, or August. Erratic control was found following post-bloom oil and selective miticide treatments during 1965 when large initial populations were present.
