ABSTRACT
Pollen beetle susceptibility level to different insecticides has been investigated in Poland for several years. So far, high resistance to many of the insecticides' active substances has been found. The work presents the current status of the pollen beetle susceptibility level to deltamethrin and beta-cyfluthrin, pointing to the beetle's medium, high or very high resistance to both active substances. Also, pollen beetle resistance mechanisms to deltamethrin were investigated. Research, conducted with the use of oxidases, esterases and glutathione transferases blockers, showed that all three enzymes groups are involved in the pollen beetle resistance mechanisms to deltamethrin. The main role was played by oxidases and to a lower degree: esterases and glutathione transferases, respectively.
