Insecticidal resistance in diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella): A review

Sumaya Mubashir and Devina Seram
Diamondback Moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae), has become the world's most devastating insect pest of the Brassicaceae family. This study provides an overview of insecticidal resistance in DBM, as well as an outline of resistance development and monitoring, which will aid in the formulation of new tactics to address the pest's problems in horticultural ecosystems around the world. DBM has become one of the most challenging pests to control, owing to irrational and non-judicious application of insecticides belonging to different groups, which has resulted in higher application rates, reduced effectiveness, and control efficiency breakdown. DDT was the first insecticide to which resistance was discovered in Lembang in 1953. This paper will assist us in providing a better control towards its hostile behaviour.
