Oil products are widely used in orchards and on grapevine as pesticides, or adjuvants to pesticides. We aimed to get information on the efficacy of formulated rape seed oil against phytophagous mites in grapevine and its effect on predatory mites. Formulated rape seed oil (TELMION(R)) from the Temmen GmbH, Germany was used in field trials at 0.5% and 1%. For phytophagous mites TELMION(R) had an efficacy of 90.1% and 91.2% for 05% and for 1%, respectively. For Phytoseiidae there was no side effect at 0.5% and 1%. For Tydeiidae there was no side effect at 0.5% and a moderate toxicity (43.1%) at 1%. On the basis of our results TELMION(R) seems to fit well into integrated Pest Management or Organic Production in grapevine.
