The local asymptotic stability and stability switches of the positive equilibrium in a logistic population model with mixed instantaneous and delayed density dependence is analyzed. It is shown that when the delayed dependence is more dominant, either the positive equilibrium becomes unstable for all large delay values, or the stability of equilibrium switches back and force several times as the delay value increases. Compared with the logistic model with the instantaneous term and a delayed term, our finding here is that the incorporation of another delayed term can lead to the occurrence of multiple stability switches.
