Abstract:
Responses of five field -collected populations of the pink bollworm. Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders). from Arizona and southern California. were compared with those of a standard. susceptible -laboratory strain. Field strains showed less than twofold difference in response to azinphosmethyl at LD₅₀ but had variable levels (1.3- to 18.3-fold) of response to permethrin. Strains from Yuma and Phoenix (Arizona) and Westmoreland (California) had highest levels of resistance to permethrin.
