Several of the newer synthetic organic or "second generation" acaricides are widely used for control of phytophagous mites and ticks. Quinoxaline, organotin, organofluorine, and formamidine compounds are among the newer pesticide chemicals used for acarine control. Included in these four classes are some of the most selective synthetic organic toxicants currently in the acaricide/insecticide arsenal. Oxythioquinox, Plictran, Nissol, and chlordimeform are examples of quinoxaline, organotin, organofluorine, and formamidine acaricides, respectively. Certain of these compounds also have insecticidal and fungicidal activity. The chemistry and toxicology of these and related compounds are discussed.
