Commercial spray oils of 60, 70, and ]00 viscosities, and Indopol polybutenes were evaluated during early season on Panonychus ulmi (Koch) infesting apple. The efficacy of these materials was dependent on time and number of applications ill relation to apple tree bud development.

No differences in control were observed between the commercial oils and very little between the viscosities. Good spray coverage was thought to be of greater importance than viscosity from green-tip to pink-bud stage of apple. The 70-viscosity oils consistently gave better control than the 60-viscosity oils, but the differences were minor. Oil sprays applied as late as the 3rd cover gave no control of two-spotted spider mites, Thtranychusurticae Koch. The Indopol oils were most effective shortly after bloom but were no more effective than superior oils.
