Abstract:Laboratory experiments utilizing the slide-dip technique were conducted to establish base-line dosage-mortality data on Eotetranychus hicoriae (McGregor). The effectiveness of 11 insecticides currently registered for pecans from most to least toxic based on LD50 values were demeton, dicofol, dialifor, azinphosmethyl, disulfoton, phosalone, parathion, methidathion, dimethoate, carbaryl, and endosulfan while the rank of 10 compounds presently not labeled for use on pecans was oxydemetonmethyl, methiocarb, Plictran®, chlordimeform, dicrotophos, monocrotophos, malonoben, Vendex® (hexakis (beta, beta-dimethyl-phenethyl) distannoxane), methomyl, and methyl parathion.
