Six field populations of the parasitoid Diadegma insulare (Cresson) were collected from Mexico and the United States and tested for their susceptibility to permethrin by using a glass-vial residue bioassay. Significant differences existed in susceptibility, with one population significantly more susceptible than the other five. Susceptibility of D. insulare increased when they were reared for several generations in the greenhouse in the absence of selection. D. insulare was less suceptible to… CONTINUE READING
