Abstract:
Populations of cabbage looper were collected during 1998 from 12 geographical location in the United States, and were assessed for susceptibility to six new insecticides: Alert, Avaunt, Confirm, Intrepid, Proclaim, and Success, and to a standard insecticide, Pounce. There was no detectable evidence indicating insecticide resistance to any of the new insecticides. However, variability in response to Confirm, Proclaim, and Success warrants close resistance monitoring. Cabbage looper response to Pounce was extremely variable, and there was strong evidence for the occurrence of resistance. Populations from Jackson, MS, Sunderland, MA, and Whately, MA all exhibited high levels of resistance to Pounce with resistance ratios of 90.60, 93.50, and 76.30-fold respectively.
