The Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), is widely regarded as the most important insect defoliator of potatoes. Its current range covers about 16 million km2 in North America, Europe, and Asia and continues to expand. This insect has a complicated and diverse life history, which is well-suited to agricultural environments, and makes it a complex and challenging pest to control. Dispersal, closely connected with diapause, feeding, and reproduction, allow the Colorado potato… 
Colorado Potato Beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say)
Chinese scientists focused on its monitoring and invasion risk management in China, as well as its invasion biology and ecology related to rapid dispersal, such as developmental threshold and cumulative temperature, diapause condition, and influence factors for flight.
Efficacy of the Applied Natural Enemies on the Survival of Colorado Potato Beetle Adults
Entomopathogenic nematodes have the potential to effectively decrease the emergence of CPB adults, but further research is needed to develop the most effective application for field usage and to improve the effectiveness in the field.
Diffusion of colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata, adults in field
The Colorado potato beetle (CPB), Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), is a highly destructive migratory pest on potato crops worldwide and has now invaded more than 40 countries across North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
Attraction effect of different host-plant to Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata
The Colorado potato beetle(CPB),Leptinotarsa decemlineata(Say),is one of the most destructive pests of potato crops and has expanded its range worldwide.CPB was first discovered in the foothills of
Difficulties in Potato Pest Control: The Case of Pyrethroids on Colorado Potato Beetle
A review on the difficulties of potato pest control is presented using as a case study the resistance of CPB to pyrethroids to show a better understanding of the status and mechanisms of insecticide resistance.
Propensity for Flying and Walking by the Colorado Potato Beetles Treated with Imidacloprid
Since local selection followed by long-distance dispersal have been reported to lead to serious area-wide problems with the insecticide-resistant Colorado potato beetle, long-term suppression of flight activity recorded in this study suggests that imidacloprid applications may reduce outflow of resistant alleles.
Managing the Colorado potato beetle; the need for resistance breeding
It is concluded that varieties resistant to CPB are desperately needed by farmers and demanded by society, and that the means to develop them are available.
Extraordinary Adaptive Plasticity of Colorado Potato Beetle: “Ten-Striped Spearman” in the Era of Biotechnological Warfare
After reviewing hundreds of scientific papers dealing with CPB control, it became clear that even biotechnological means of control, if used alone, would not defeat the Colorado potato beetle.
Modern Techniques in Colorado Potato Beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say) Control and Resistance Management: History Review and Future Perspectives
The use of Bacillus thuringiensis and RNA interference (RNAi) are described as possible solutions for the future in CPB management and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are discussed as a way to go deeper into the understanding of resistance and how it influences genotypes.


The Colorado Potato Beetle: 125 Years of Mismanagement
Since the colorado potato beetle (CPB) was first recognized as a pest of potatoes (Edgerton 1861) it has had a profound effect, influencing generations of agriculturalists to depend upon this unilateral approach for managing this pest and others.
Colorado potato beetle [Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say)] resistance to organophosphates and carbamates in Serbia
Biochemical research of potato beetle resistance to organophosphates and carbamates, based on activity of ALiE and AChE, proved that the key mode of resistance was modification of aliesterase and a carboxylesterase to carbamate.
Distribution of overwintering Colorado potato beetle in and near Massachusetts potato fields
This investigation is important to any attempt to understand and manage the spring colonization of crops by the overwintered adults of the Colorado potato beetle.
Economic impact of insecticide resistance in the Colorado potato beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) on the Michigan Potato Industry
Insecticide resistance in Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), in Michigan was first reported in 1984 but caused severe economic problems beginning in 1991, and costs of resistance will continue to accrue because relatively inexpensive insecticides are no longer effective and newly developed products are up to 5 times more costly.
The Colorado potato beetle in movement
Abstract The recent introduction of the concept of refuge areas for the management of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say) (Coleoptera : Chrysomelidae), on resistant potato
Selection, inheritance and characterization of carbofuran resistance in the Colorado potato beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
Resistance to carbofuran in a Colorado potato beetle population from Long Island, NY appears to involve primarily mixed-function oxidase enzymes, and the history of insecticide use probably affects which primary resistance mechanism appears in response to carb ofuran treatment.
Relative Fitness of Insecticide-Resistant Colorado Potato Beetle Strains (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
The reduced fitness sometimes associated with resistant alleles has often been discussed as a possible tool of resistance management for Colorado potato beetle and the implications of the reduced fitness due to the azinphosmethyl-resistance allele are discussed.
Potential for Resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis: Colorado Potato Beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)—A Model System
The Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), is used as a model organism for discussing potential for resistance development, and operative factors that could influence resistance development are presented.
Distance, rotation, and border crops affect Colorado potato beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) colonization and population density and early blight (Alternaria solani) severity in rotated potato fields
The effect of distance between rotated potato fields on Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), and early blight, Alternaria soiani, incidence was evaluated and an integrated pest management program resulted in an inverse relationship between distance and the number of insecticides applied.
REPO: A Simulation Model That Explores Colorado Potato Beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Adaptation to Insecticides
A simulation model was developed to predict the rate of resistance development in Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), given various genetic, biological, and management conditions and some of the unique features of this pest that could influence resistance evolution.
