abstract

Not available – first paragraph follows:

Spider mites on cotton– the Atlantic mite, Tetranychus atlanticus McG.; the Pacific mite, T. pacificus McG.; the two-spotted mite, T. bimaculatus Harvey should be controlled by killing the mites in their overwintering stages on winter and spring host plants and on the ground.
