Do ants or other insects get immune to insect pesticides? If so, do I have to rotate pesticides?


There are some types of insects such as roaches, bed bugs, whiteflies, scales, etc, that over several generations can build up a resistance to certain insecticides and insecticide baits and sprays should be rotated to avoid any issues. We have never seen any research or reports about ants that have become resistant to insecticides
