Toxicities of O-alkyl analogues of azinphosmethyl were determined for a susceptible and an azinphosmethyl resistant strain of the predaceous mite, Amblyseius fallacis (Garman). The resistance factor, R/S , decreased with the ethyl and n -propyl analogues, verifying previous findings that the glutathione transferases were responsible for resistance in this strain of mite. Cross-resistance is possible to various organophosphate insecticides, particularly those with O-methyl groups.
