In the laboratory, Dimilin® (TH-6040, 1-(4-chloro- phenyl)-3-(2,6-difluorobenzoyl)urea), applied to the egg stage, was found to inhibit molting of the citrus rust mite in the 2nd nymphal stage at dosages of 0.04–0.30g AI/liter, but had no effect on eggs, adults, or reproduction of F1 females exposed to the compound in their developmental stages. In the field, Dimilin at a rate of 0.15 g AI/fliter, with and without oil, gave excellent control of citrus rust mite and protection of fruit from external blemish for 21 wk.
