Tobacco thrips tolerant to seed treatments

As you read this article, keep in mind that my lab will be starting a colony of tobacco thrips next month. We’re going to first develop dose response curves for 4 neonics using a susceptible laboratory colony. Next, we’ll test a discriminating dose of LD80 on 3 field populations in the bootheel. If you think you may have resistant or chemical tolerant individuals in the fields you are scouting, please let me know.
