Resistance to aldrin in banana borers Cosmopolites sordidus Germ. from the coast of Sao Paulo



Resistance to aldrin in banana borers Cosmopolites sordidus Germ. from the coast of Sao Paulo



Biologico 45(11/12): 249-254



Resistance to aldrin was detected in adults of Cosmopolites sordidus (Germ.) from 7 of 11 banana plantations on the coast of Sao Paulo State, Brazil. Cross-resistance to heptachlor was also evident. The resistant strains were, however, susceptible to carbofuran, and, to a lesser degree, to parathion, in the form of a dust.
