Abstract:The development of resistance by the tobacco budworm, Heliothis virescens (F.), in Texas to toxaphene + DDT and Strobane® (terpene polychlorinates, 65% chlorine) + DDT occurred during the period 1963-65. During this period the LD50 for toxaphene + DDT increased from 0.57 to 3.52 mg of insecticide per gram of larva and for Strobane from 0.51 to 11.12 mg/g. These values indicate an increase in resistance of the tobacco budworm of approximately 6-fold to toxaphene + DDT and 22-fold to Strobane + DDT.
