Occurrence, genetics and management of insecticide resistance

Parasitol Today. 1993 May;9(5):174-9. doi: 10.1016/0169-4758(93)90141-2.


A lot has been learned about insecticide resistance in the past 40 years. The problem is more extensive and widespread than could have been predicted. In this review, Richard Roush discusses the genetics and management of resistance to insecticides (especially as related to arthropod vectors of human and animal diseases), with the objective of suggesting future directions.
