Reliance on a narrow range of chemicals to control pests leads to problems in resurgence, secondary pests and the development of pesticide resistance... We will expand upon work performed under GRDC project "developing and demonstrating the role of alternative chemistries and integrated management for crop establishment pests" (project UM00033), which is investigating the distribution and level of resistance in redlegged earth mites... Laboratory tests have shown that these mite species and lucerne flea differ in their tolerance to pesticides application rates for one species may not be effective against another species...

Managing invertebrate pests in new farming systems.. There is a continuing need for species-specific research into the ecology of species for which there are currently no effective controls, such as European earwig... The question of pesticide effects is currently being addressed through the GRDC-funded project "Developing and promoting IPM in Australian grains" which is comparing three pest management approaches: (i) "nil" insecticide input (control), (ii) conventional "high" insecticide input, and an alternative "low" insecticide input approach...

New findings on the biology and control of Mandalotus weevils including insecticide trials.. In recent seasons, wetter weather patterns and some good winter rainfall has largely reduced pest pressure on established crops in winter and spring, and in both 2010 and 2011 there were fewer reports of damage from spring pests such as aphids, diamondback moth, and native budworm (Table 1)... Efficacy was assessed by releasing marked weevils after the plots had been treated with insecticide (within 28 hours) into cages in the centre of plots for 7 days and afterwards assessing recovered weevils as alive, moribund (unable to feed) or dead...
