Screening chemicals against an oribatid mite


Proceedings of the New Zealand Weed and Pest Control Conference: 116-119
Screening chemicals against an oribatid mite
A range of pesticides were screened against the oribatid Scutovertex sculptus, which occurs on kiwifruit in New Zealand, in the laboratory at 20 degrees C and 93% RH. Of the 25 chemicals tested, only clocythrin (Karate 5 EC at 2.5 g a.i./100 litres), pirimiphos-methyl (Actellic 50 EC at 75-375 g a.i./100 litres) and mineral oil (2% Sunspray) caused greater than 50% mortality.
