IN July 1961 specimens from a wild colony of Tetranychus urticae were gathered from Sambucus nigra L. in dunes in the Netherlands and cultivated on beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) in the laboratory. This colony (S) proved to be very susceptible to the ovo-larvicide ‘Tedion’ (2,4,5,4′ - tetrachloro - diphenylsulphone—LD50, 1.410 p.p.m.).
