Insect pest management depends heavily on the use of synthetic insecticides and increasingly, genetically modified crops. The widespread use of insecticides and transgenetic plants has resulted in the development of resistance among numerous insects. Many pests developed multiple resistance mechanisms, rendering the failure of control using available insecticides. How to prevent or slow down resistance development, and manage resistant pests continues to be a very challenging area. This special issue will include original research articles and reviews by leading research entomologists and associated experts. Articles will focus on the resistance mechanisms, insecticide resistance monitoring, and solutions to managing insecticide resistance or resistance to transgenetic plants.
