Tetranychus urticae


Mortality of Tetranychus urticae   caused by fenbutatin oxide

The ratios of reduction (mortality ratios) of T. urticae   were significantly different between sampling dates (F = 2.39; df = 19; P = 0.006) ( Figure 2). One day after the first application, fenbutatin oxide produced 42.6 % reduction of T. urticae   . This ratio increased gradually and reached 79.2 % after 21 days. When the second application was carried out, mortalities were from 92.5 % to 96.0 % during 21 days. The ratio slightly increased to 99.3 % at 21 days after the third application and then, a gradual decrease was observed and reached to 57.0 % at the end of the experiment ( Figure 2).
