Bifenazate, a new selective carbazate acaricide, seems to be a very good substitute for propargite to control spider mites (Tetranychus urticae Koch) on hops in the Czech Republic. To investigate the phenomenon of T. urticae resistance to this compound, 20 samples of field populations were taken in several Czech and Moravian hop-growing regions in 2006 and 2007 and subjected to laboratory tests in a Potter tower. Low values of C100 M (100% mortality) in comparison with the supposed registered concentration reveal that bifenazate may become a useful acaricide within the anti-resistant strategy against T. urticae not only in Czech but also in all European hop-growing regions.Keywords:
