Measuring Insecticide Resistance

Part of the Springer Series in Experimental Entomology book series (SSEXP)


When the failure of an insecticide (applied at its normal rate) to control a population of insects is due to a genetically transmitted capacity to tolerate more insecticide than normal, then insecticide resistance is said to have occurred. In field resistance, these simple biological factors are complicated by such economic considerations, as what level of pest presence is deemed acceptable.
