Abstract

The unprecedented increase in the number and variety of pesticides developed during the past two decades has resulted in the availability of at least a dozen acaricides effective in the control of mites injurious to citrus. Although most of these acaricides effectively controlled the citrus red mite, Panonychus citri (McG.), the resistance phenomenon together with the stringent requirements imposed by government regulations has virtually eliminated all of these as available effective acaricides for the control of citrus red mite in important citrus growing districts in California. This dearth of effective acaricides has stimulated interest in the development of new acaricides.
