The response of five field strains and one laboratory strain of Tetranychus cinnabarinus to amitraz was tested using a slide dip bio-assay technique. The different strains of mites responded differently to amitraz suggesting possible resistance. However, due to non-parallelism of some of the probit lines the degree of resistance could not be fully quantified.
