Western corn rootworm colonies will be selected for resistance to Cry34/35Ab1-expressing transgenic maize and resistance levels will be compared to control colonies and colonies designed to simulate a refuge. In addition, dominance of resistance will be tested by crossing resistant and susceptible colonies and evaluating progeny and fitness costs associated with resistance will also be evaluated.
