BACKGROUND Spinosad, a relatively new, effective and safe pesticide, has been widely used in pest control over the last 10 years. However, different levels of resistance to this insecticide have developed in some insects worldwide. RESULTS After continuous selection for 27 generations, a strain (SpRR) of the housefly developed 247-fold resistance to spinosad compared with the laboratory susceptible strain (CSS). The estimated realised heritability (h(2) ) of spinosad resistance was 0.14… CONTINUE READING
