In Australia, the strategy is dictated by the cotton growing season, which is divided into three stages: I, early growth; II, the peak squaring, flowering, and boll formation; and III, end of season. The use of pyrethroids is restricted to stage II, which corresponds to a 42-day period for a single H. armigera generation, with no more than three applications. Endosulfan should not be used during stage III to decrease the chances of reselection for resistance to cyclodiene insecticides (Forrester, 1990).
