Paracalacarus podocarpi Keifer is the most important mite pest of Podocarpus macrophyllus (Thunb.) D. Don in nursery and landscape culture in Florida. Twenty-four miticides were evaluated in two experiemnts for control. Single applications of bromopropylate, cyhexatin, dicofol, dioxathion, fenbutatin-oxide, or oxamyl reduced populations below one mite per leaf. Two applications, 7 days apart, with carbophenothion, dialifor, diflubenzuron, or propargite also reduced mites to less than one mite per leaf. Mean populations of 361.1 and 314.7 mites per two-leaf samples were present on the plants before treatments were applied in the two experiments.
