ABSTRACT
Apple cultivars investigated as new hosts for two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch appeared to provide good environment for its development and reproduction. The best conditions for two-spotted spider mite development were on leaves of cultivars Novamac and Freedom with a net reproduction (R o ) 22.6 and 20.3 respectively, while the worst on cultivars Pioner and Primula with R o 8.9 and 10.2 ,respectively
