Abstract/Contents:Discusses turf insect pest resistance to insecticides. Explains that "resistance can be defined as a loss of field effectiveness, usually as a result of repeated applications." Briefly discusses field and laboratory studies examining insecticide reisistance. States that "resistance often first appears in an insect population simply because some individuals are 'lucky' and have a genetic mutation that protects them from the harmful effects of the insecticide...Often the resistance gene provides an obvious advantage whenever chemical X is present, but it also may have a cost associated with it. The insect that carries the resistance gene may take longer to develop from egg to adult, or it may be less efficient at converting food to energy or less successful at competing for mates. However, as long as chemical X is in the population's environment, that resistance gene will provide an overriding advantage for the insects that have it." Describes conditions that may contribute to resistance, including feeding habits, lack of mobility, and amount of turf treated. Presents a case study conducted to examine insecticide resistance in annual bluegrass weevils. Suggests methods that may help prevent or delay insecticide resistance.
