Simulations were used to compare evolution of insecticide resistance predicted by a conventional two-allele model with predictions from three- and four-allele models that assume resistance is based on gene amplification. Results were similar between models when insecticide concentration was low or moderate. In contrast, when 10% of the population was not exposed to insecticide each generation, high insecticide concentrations slowed resistance development in the two-allele model, but caused… CONTINUE READING
