Penetration, Binding and Target Insensitivity as Causes of Resistance to Chlorinated Hydrocarbon Insecticides
In the past 20 years scientists have worked hard to understand the biochemical basis of insecticide resistance in insect and acarine species, and in many instances, enough evidence has accumulated to offer some rational judgments on the cause of such resistance.
