The two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch (1836) (Acari: Tetranychidae), is one of the most economically important species in the world due to its cosmopolitan occurrence and abundance in many cropping systems, including fruits, vegetables, oilseed, ornamental and medicinal plants (GALLO et al., 2002; FADINI et al., 2004; HAN et al., 2011).
In addition, Alhewairini and Al-Azazzy (2017a, b) were the first to report that Huwa-San TR50 can be successfully used as an acaricide in killing two spotted spider mites (Tetranychus urticae Koch) with minimal effects on its associated predatory mite, (Neosiulus cucumeris) and Varroa mite (Varroa jacobsoni Oudemans).
(2009) verified that, when applied before, chlorpyrifos affected the efficiency of bifenazate, which is an acaricide, used to control Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae).
In many other mites, such as Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae) (Ho & Lo 1979), Panonychus citri McGregor (Acari: Tetranychidae) (Liu & Horng 1988), and Oligonychus coffeae Nietner (Acari: Tetranychidae) (Gotoh & Nagata 2001), the same phenomenon occurs.

However, little is known about its ability to reduce populations of the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae (Koch, 1836) (Tetranychidae).
Previous studies have reported direct resistance induction by Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae) in plants, resulting in reduced performance of these organisms in previously infested plants (Karban and Carey, 1984; Kant et al., 2004).
