Nazar, M.Z., Freed, S., Hussain, S., Sumra, M.W., Shah, M.S., & Naeem, A. 2020 Characteristics of biochemical resistance mechanism of novel insecticides in Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae). Crop Protection 138:105320


  • chemical control
  • resistance
  • Notes: The study was conducted to investigate resistance against insecticides with different action modes (carbosulfan, clothianidin and chlorfenapyr) by selecting P. solenopsis populations successively for twelve generations with mentioned insecticides. Current research suggests that the detoxifying enzymes may contribute to resistance evolvement in P. solenopsis and this information may be used for the efficient management of insecticide resistance.
