The susceptibility of Colorado potato beetles (Leptinotarsa decemlineata)(CPB) from three provinces in western Canada was measured using a filterpaper bioassay to substantiate the reported insecticide resistance by thebeetle in Manitoba, and to compare the situation there to beetle popula-tions from Saskatchewan and Alberta. Susceptibility of beetles was mea-sured against five insecticides: the organophosphates, azinphos-methyl(Guthion), and methamidophos (Monitor); the pyrethroid, permethrin (Am-bush); the organochlorine, endosulfan (Endosulfan); and the carbamate,carbaryl (Sevin). All 12 populations tested from Manitoba were found tohave resistance to one or more of the insecticides. All populations wereclassified as either having resistance or intermediate resistance to per-methrin; two of the populations were classified as having resistance toazinphos-methyl and three to methamidophos. Two of four populationsfrom Saskatchewan were classified as having intermediate resistance toazinphos-methyl and methamidophos. Intermediate resistance to per-methrin was recorded in 12 of the 13 populations from Alberta, with onlyone being highly susceptible. Two populations showed evidence of inter-mediate resistance to azinphos-methyl and three to methamidophos. In allthree provinces, survival rate from different egg masses within the suscep-tible populations ranged from 0-100%, indicating the presence of individ-uals with either resistance, intermediate or high susceptibility within thesepopulations. With the expanding potato acreage in western Canada andthe detection of the CPB populations with resistance to insecticides, aresistance management program must be implemented to prevent therapid selection of resistant populations.

La sensibilité desdoryphores a été mesurée pour cinq insecticides : les organophosphatesazinphos-méthyl (Guthion) et méthamidophos (Monitor), le pyréthroïdeperméthrine (Ambush), l’organochloré endosulfan (Endosulfan) et le car-bamate carbaryl (Sevin). Les 12 populations du Manitoba examinéesdémontraient de la résistance à au moins un des insecticides. Toutes lespopulations ont été classées comme étant résistantes ou moyennementrésistantes à la perméthrine; deux des populations ont été classées commerésistantes à l’azinphos-méthyl et trois au méthamidophos. Deux desquatre populations de la Saskatchewan ont été classées comme étantmoyennement résistantes à l’azinphos-méthyl et au méthamidophos. Unerésistance intermédiaire à la perméthrine a été trouvée dans 12 des 13populations de l’Alberta, alors qu’une seule était très sensible. Deuxpopulations se sont montrées moyennement résistantes à l’azinphos-méthylet trois au méthamidophos. Dans les trois provinces, le taux de survie dediverses masses d’oeufs provenant de populations sensibles variait de 0à 100 %, ce qui montre que des individus résistants, moyennement résis-tants et très sensibles coexistent dans ces populations. Avec l’expansionde la culture de la pomme de terre dans l’Ouest canadien et la détectiond’une résistance aux insecticides dans les populations du doryphore de lapomme de terre, un programme de gestion de la résistance doit être misen place pour éviter la sélection rapide de populations résistantes.
