2024 Abstract - EVALUATION OF MITICIDE EFFICACY FOR CONTROL OF TWO-SPOTTED SPIDER MITE (TETRANYCHUS URTICAE) IN MID-SOUTHERN U.S. COTTON PRODUCTION: Only considered an occasional pest in most Mid-southern U.S. cotton producing states, the two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) (TSSM) is consistently observed in the Missouri bootheel region. Growers across the cotton belt are seeking answers for control of TSSM and limited data exists due to difficulty of pest colony natural establishment. Entomologist across the cotton belt have collected miticide efficacy data to better understand available miticide options for grower producers. These data will aid growers in management decisions for TSSM infestations.
