Abstract:

Effects of biological and operational factors on rates of development of resistance to pyrethroid insecticides in Liriomyza leafminers were studied with a simulation model. Under the conditions examined, resistance evolved faster as fecundity increased, but a range of 5-50 eggs per female per day had relatively little effect. Immigration of susceptibles slowed resistance development, but variation from 0-0.01 adult immigrants per leaf per day did not greatly affect predictions. A refuge for 10%of the adults slowed resistance development. Reductions in spray frequency and dose substantially slowed resistance development. Model projections agree reasonably well with available data and may be useful for understanding and managing resistance in Lirlomyza.
