Abstract:Four strains of Typhlodromus occidentalis Nesbitt from different geographical areas were exposed to 10 compounds which arc common to the control of apple pests in the western United States. Predator strains from Washington and Utah demonstrated resistance to azinphosmethyl and Gardona® (2-chloro-1-(2,4,5-trichlorophenyl)vinyl dimethyl phosphate) when compared with 2 susceptible strains from California. The Washington strain of T. occidentalis when contrasted with strains from Utah and California, exhibited tolerance differences for 4 compounds including carbaryl, clicofol, oxythioquinox and Omite® (2- (p-ten- butylphenoxy) cyclohexyl 2-propynyl sulfite). Predaccous mites from Oak Glen, near Yucaipa, California, were least susceptible to dinocap treatments. Carbaryl applications, when compared with reports of field evaluations in the published literature, were less toxic in our laboratory test than expected. Except when applied at extremely high dosages, parathion was uniformly nontoxic to all predator strains. Toxicity differences among- strains appeared to be due to selection arising from previous chemical treatments and to have resulted in cross tolerant, tolerant, and resistant strains of T. occidelltalis.
