Resistance to the spore-crystal protein complex of Bacillus thuringiensis, the most widely used and intensively studied microbial insecticide, has been presumed to be unlikely to occur. In this study it was found that Plodia interpunctella, a major lepidopteran pest of stored grain products, can develop resistance to the insecticide within a few generations. Resistance increased nearly 30-fold in two generations in a strain reared on diet treated with Bacillus thuringiensis and after 15… CONTINUE READING
