Synergism and Antagonism of Mixing Some Acaricides with Jojoba Oil for Control of Spider Mite (Acari: Tetranychidae) in Egypt

F. K. El-Duweini and R. A. Sedrak


In an attempt to reduce the dose of acaricides used for control of the two-spotted spider mite, T. arabicus Attiah, the toxicity of some acaricides as well as their joint action with jojoba oil against the mite adult females were investigated. Ortus was the most toxic material among the three tested chemical acaricides followed by M-Pede then Biomite. Only one mixture (M-Pede LC27.5 + Jojoba oil LC25) produced a high level of synergism, while all other concentrations of the different acaricides with the LC25 of jojoba oil showed additive effects.
