Toxicities of 51 pesticides (25 insecticides, 11, acaricides, 11 fungicides and 4 adjuvants) commonly used to control greenhouse insect, mite, and disease pests were evaluated to minute pirate bug, Orius strigicollis nymphs and adults at the recommended concentration. Among 25 insecticides tested, fipronil, lufenuron, acetamiprid+fipronil, $\alpha$-cypermethrin+flufenoxuron and buprofezin + amitraz showed low toxicity to O. strigicollis. Among acaricides, acequinocyl, bifenazate, chlorfenapyr, etoxazole, fenpyroximate, flufenoxuron, milbemectin, spirodiclofen and tebufenpyrad showed low toxicity to O. strigicollis. All fungicides and adjuvants tested were very low toxicity. It may be suggested from these results that five insecticides, nine acaricides, eleven fungicides and four adjuvants could be incorporated into the integrated thrips management system with O. strigicollis in greenhouses.

병해충 방제약제로 등록된 51종의 농약(살충제 25종, 살비제 11종, 살균제 11종 그리고 농약보조제 4종)에 대한 으뜸애꽃노린재 약충과 성충의 독성을 조사하였다. 살충제 중에서는 flpronil, lufenuron, acetamiprid+fipronil, $\alpha$-cypermethrin+flufenoxuron, buprofezin+amitraz of 독성이 낮았고, 살비제 중에서는 acequinocyl, bifenazate, chlorfenapyr, etoxazole, fenpyroximate, flufenoxuron, milbemectin, spirodiclofen, tebufenpyrad가 독성이 낮거나 없었다. 살균제와 농약보조제는 모두 낮은 독성을 보였다. 이상의 결과로 보아 시설 병해충의 종합관리체계 에서 으뜸애꽃노린재에 독성이 적은 약제와 으뜸애꽃노린재를 함께 이용할 수 있을 것이다.
