Knowledge about the mechanisms of resistance development to widely used insecticides and their inheritance in insects is necessary for effective pest control. The article describes the effect mechanism of the pyrrole insecticide chlorfenapyr, outlines information about the effectiveness of its use against different types of insects in laboratory and field conditions. The analysis of literary data from Russian and foreign sources over the past 20 years has been carried out. The data on research of insect resistance to chlorfenapyr are presented, the successes achieved in understanding the mechanisms of resistance formation in insects are described, and the main directions in modern research are established. The prospects of using chlorfenapyr to control the number of resistant insect populations are evaluated.
