Eight systemic insecticides were tested during 1966–70 for control of the twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, and the hop aphid, Phorodon humuli (Schrank), in field plots of hops. One application (6.4 kg) or 2 applications spaced 8 wk apart (3.2 kg) of aldicarb/ha gave satisfactory control of both pests. Increased yield of hop cones was ca. three 200-lb bales/acre over the untreated check. Phorate and disulfoton controlled aphids but not mites. Dimefox did not control mites and was not evaluated against aphids. The remaining compounds HERC 17413 (O, O-dimethyl phosphorodithioate S-ester with 3-(mercaptomethyl) -l-methylhydantoin)), HERC 18526 (O,O-dimethyl phosphorothioate S-ester with 3-mercaptomethyl)-l-methylhydantoin), TAR-TAN® (S- (((1-cyano-l-methylethyl) carbamoyl) methyl) O,O-diethyl phosphorothioate), and BAY 68138 (Ethyl 4-(methylthio)-m-tolyl isopropylphosphoramidate) were ineffective for control of mites or aphids.
