Abstract The damage potential of Campylomma livida Reuter, and Megacoelum modestum Distant, (Hemiptera: Miridae) on cotton in Queensland was investigated in the seasons 1976-77 and 1977-78. In field trials, 54% and 35% fewer squares on untreated plants compared with those protected with DDT-toxaphene were related to mirid presence, in the first and second seasons, respectively. In glasshouse experiments M. modestum was the more important of the two species, causing 70% reductions in the number of squares on infested plants compared with uninfested plants. C. livida caused 20% of squares to be shed. Mirid presence may coincide with Heliothis spp. activity, so techniques for the control of mirids would have to complement current Heliothis spp. management.
