Baseline susceptibility to novaluron will be determined using glass-vial bioassays with tarnished plant bug adults collected from weed hosts found near cotton fields at 10-20 locations in the Mississippi Delta. Tarnished plant bug populations will continue to be monitored for a three-year period for potential shifts in susceptibility caused by increased exposure to novaluron.
