The convergent lady beetle (CLB), Hippodamia convergens (Guérin-Méneville), a species widely distributed and used in biological control, has exhibited high survival under field and laboratory conditions when treated with field rates of the pyrethroid k-cyhalothrin, a highly unusual phenomenon for a natural enemy. This work investigated and characterized the phenomenon of pyrethroid resistance in a population of this species collected in Georgia, USA. The mechanism and level of resistance were… CONTINUE READING
