The cosmopolitan pest Aphis gossypii (Glover) causes considerable economic losses on various crops by its feeding damage and transmitting diseases around the world. Flupyradifurone is a novel butenolide pesticide; its toxicity on A. gossypii parent generation (F0) was estimated following treatment with LC25 concentration for 48 h. The adult longevity and fecundity of the F0 individuals treated by flupyradifurone showed no significant decrease in comparison with the control. Life table method was used to evaluate the sublethal effects on progeny population (F1). Results showed that the development time of the fourth instar and the preadult as well as the total pre-reproductive period were significantly prolonged, while their fecundity was significantly decreased compared with the control. Additionally, the intrinsic rate of increase (r), the finite rate of increase (λ), and the net reproductive rate (R0) of F1 were all significantly lower in the group treated by LC25 than in the control group.These results reveal that the sublethal concentration of flupyradifurone could suppress the population growth of A. gossypii and indicate that this novel insecticide may be as a useful tool in pest management.
