Summary of Research: Insecticide cross-resistance is an important problem for IPM of western flower thrips in cut flowers. We tested the hypothesis that a cellular detoxification pathway, the efflux transporter system, plays an important role in insecticide cross-resistance in the WFT. We used two insecticides that are labeled for use against thrips in greenhouse production systems (abamectin & tolfenpyrad), one insecticide that is known to be regulated by the efflux transporter system (acetamiprid), and a pyrethroid (lambda-cyhalothrin) to investigate the role of efflux transporters in insecticide resistance in WFT.
