AbstractA variety of insecticides have been tested during the last three years to keep pace with the ever-present demand for effective materials to control mites and thrips on citrus. This need is particularly acute with the recent loss of dicofol (Kelthane), which for years was an industry standard for mite control. Some of the more promising new compounds include Avermectin and NC 21314. Comments are included concerning the registration status of some of the compounds we tested. Cautions are given concerning the development of resistance to compounds which are soon to be available.
