Resistance Management with Alpha Cypermethrin 100

Alpha Cypermethrin 100 insecticide is ineffective against synthetic pyrethoid-resistant Helicoverpa armigera larvae longer than 5mm. All Helicoverpa armigera in NSW and Qld should be treated as being resistant to synthetic pyrethroids. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Alpha Cypermethrin 100 or other Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Alpha Cypermethrin 100 on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.
