Insecticides are important tools for managing damaging insect pests. Compounds that are effective against pests such as the whiteflies Bemisia tabaci and Trialeurodes vaporariorum, which show resistance to a range of insecticidal modes of action (MOA), have particular value as components of resistance management programmes. The sulfoximine insecticides are chemically unique as the first to incorporate a sulfoximine functional group. Sulfoxaflor is the first sulfoximine compound under commercial development for the control of sap-feeding insects. Its cross-resistance relationships were investigated by comparing the responses of field-collected strains with those of insecticide-susceptible laboratory strains of B. tabaci and T. vaporariorum
