To prevent the development of resistance, ‘Chess WG’, containing pymetrozine, should not be used continuously in sequence or as the sole method of control. A maximum of two treatments should be made in sequence. Alternate with products from different chemical groups with a different mode of action, and consider the use in IPM programmes.
