Abstract:Two experiments were conducted in Florida to determine the tolerance of 4 strawberry cultivars to Tetranychus urticae Koch by comparing populations of mites on plants treated or not treated with cyhexatin for mite control. Based on percentage reductions of both numbers and weight of marketable fruit in the presence of dense mite populations, 'Florida Belle' and 'Sequoia' were more tolerant to T. urticae than were 'Tioga' and 'Siletz'. Cyhexatin significantly reduced mite populations on all cultivars. There were no significant differences among cultivars in the number of mites present.
