Causes of spider mite (Acari: Tetranychidae) population resurgences consequent upon exposure to synthetic pyrethroid (SP) treatments are reviewed. Resurgences may be seen as soon as 1 week, or even as late as a whole season, post-treatment. Synthetic pyrethroids vary in their adverse effects on spider mites, and also differ in their ability to invoke resurgences of different spidermite species on diverse plants. These pesticides are lethal as well as repellent to phytoseiids and other predators… Expand

Pesticide-induced mite outbreaks: pyrethroids and spider mites
TLDR
Factors inducing outbreaks of spider mites following use of pyrethroid insecticides are reviewed and variable responses to pyrethroids, strain variation and development of behavioural resistance also add complications to understanding outbreaks. Expand
Stability and Resiliency of Biological Control of the Twospotted Spider Mite (Acari:Tetranychidae) in Hop
TLDR
Quantified the stability and resiliency of established conservation biological control of the twospotted spider mite in hop over a 5-yr period associated with nitrogen fertilization rate and use of a broad-spectrum insecticide and found it appears stable and robust to factors that increase reproductive rates of spider mites but may be sensitive to factors such as nonselective insects that are lethal to natural enemies. Expand
Potential impacts of orchard pesticides on Tetranychus urticae: A predator-prey perspective
TLDR
The ability of spider mites to develop resistance more quickly than their natural enemies indicates that these materials should be used with caution, and the importance of studying the non-target effects of pesticides on secondary pests and their biological control agents to provide a more detailed insight into conservation biological control is emphasized. Expand
Time-concentration-mortality responses of carmine spider mite (Acari: Tetranychidae) females to three hypocrealean fungi as biocontrol agents
TLDR
Three isolates of Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae and Paecilomyces fumosoroseus with different host insect origins were assayed for biocontrol potential against the female adults of carmine spider mite Tetranychus cinnabarinus using a novel bioassay system and are promising candidates for microbial control of the mite pest. Expand
Mechanisms underlying outbreaks of spider mites following applications of imidacloprid
TLDR
This research found overwhelming evidence that outbreaks of spider mites occur consistently following applications of imidacloprid in landscape and greenhouse experiments, and demonstrated that changes in quality of plants brought about by imidcloprid seem to be the driving mechanism of secondary outbreaks ofSpider mites. Expand
Population dynamics of Panonychus osmanthi (Acari: Tetranychidae) on two Osmanthus species
TLDR
To determine the effect of predators on the rapid decline of spider mites just after the spring peak, the predators were removed by treating the trees with a synthetic pyrethroid, and spider mite density did not decline and remained at a high level during the June-August period when spider mITE density is usually very low. Expand
Direct and indirect effects of imidacloprid on fecundity and abundance of Eurytetranychus buxi (Acari: Tetranychidae) on boxwoods
TLDR
It was found that females consuming imidacloprid-treated plants laid more eggs than females feeding on untreated boxwoods, while their longevity remained unchanged, suggesting that imidcloprid’s eruptive effect on E. buxi stems more from indirect changes in plant quality than from a loss of top-down regulation from E.buxi”s natural enemies. Expand
Effects of sublethal concentrations of bifenthrin on the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae)
TLDR
The laboratory results indicate that sublethal concentrations of bifenthrin may decrease the developmental rate of T. urticae, are unlikely to result in the resurgence ofT. Expand
Acaricide Efficacy and Resistance in South Carolina Tomato Populations of Twospotted Spider Mite
Abstract Twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch (Trombidiformes: Tetranychidae) is a key pest of vegetable crops in the southeastern US. Spider mites can cause significant yield loss inExpand
An acaricide-treated net to control phytophagous mites
TLDR
A new concept of mite control using an acaricide-treated net temporarily covering vegetable crop appears to be an efficient tool which can be used repeatedly reducing costs and poses a very low risk of environmental pollution when used in the dry season or in greenhouses. Expand

Effects of Fenvalerate and Permethrin on Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae) Dispersal Behavior
TLDR
The effect of synthetic pyrethroids on the dispersal behavior of the twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, was studied and fenvalerate had the more severe and lasting effect on mite behavior. Expand
Impact of fenvalerate and diflubenzuron on target and nontarget arthropod species on Bartlett pears in northern California.
TLDR
The synthetic pyrethroid fenvalerate provided commercial control of the pear psylla during the prebloom as well as the foliar period and resulted in increased populations of spider mites, primarily the twosponed spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch, even though higher dosages were initially somewhat acaricidal.

TOXICITY AND RESIDUAL ACTIVITY OF FENVALERATE TO TYPHLODROMUS OCCIDENTALIS (ACARI: PHYTOSEIIDAE) AND ITS PREY TETRANYCHUS URTICAE (ACARI: TETRANYCHIDAE) ON PEAR
TLDR
The data suggest that because of the persistence of fenvalerate and the high sensitivity of T. occidentalis to this compound this predatory mite would not be able to reestablish after foliar fenavalerate applications and provide biological control of phytophagous mites. Expand
Effects of residues of fenvalerate and permethrin on the feeding behaviour of Tetranychus urticae (Koch)
TLDR
In response to pyrethroid residues mites exhibited hyperactivity, longer search periods and reduced feeding, reduced oviposition and a preference for areas with lower residues, which may partially explain mite outbreaks in the field on apple trees following treatment with pyrethroids. Expand
Impact of Selective Use of the Synthetic Pyrethroid Fenvalerate on Apple Pests and Natural Enemies in Large-orchard Trials
The synthetic pyrethroid, fenvalerate, when used throughout the season (112 g [AI]/ha) in a commercial apple orchard, provided excellent pest control compared to a standard insecticide schedule, butExpand
Toxicity of synthetic pyrethroid insecticides to predaceous phytoseiid mites and their prey
TLDR
Comparison of LC50 values showed both synthetic pyrethroid insecticides to be considerably more toxic than azinphos-methyl to all three species of predator mites, although T. urticae was less susceptible. Expand
ECOLOGY OF TETRANYCHID MITES AND THEIR NATURAL ENEMIES: A REVIEW III. BIOLOGY, ECOLOGY AND PEST STATUS, AND HOST PLANT RELATIONS OF TETRANYCHIDS
TLDR
It is concluded that more information is needed on economic injury levels of various species on different crops and under various climatic conditions and the fundamental relations between the host-plant quality and spider mite development, and the impact of spider mites on the development of their host plants.

EFFECTS OF FENVALERATE AND AZINPHOSMETHYL ON TWO‐SPOTTED SPIDER MITE AND PHYTOSEIID MITES
TLDR
The pyrethroid fenvalerate showed significantly faster activity against adult ♀ two‐spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae Koch using broad bean leaf discs sprayed in a Potter tower and increasing concentrations of azinphosmethyl had no effect on oviposition preference. Expand

TLDR
The pyrethroid fenvalerate induced avoidance was repellent to adult ♀ two‐spotted spider mites, Tetranychus urticae Koch, on treated bean plants (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and significantly reduced the remaining mite population. Expand
