    don't know if this is true, but NBC news just said that NYC bbs are 250% more resistant to pesticides than those in Florida.

    Here's a link to a WSJ article along the same theme. I'm wondering if the "Florida" sample is from the wild or if this is a "pure" strain like Harold Harlan's (never exposed to pyrethroids).

    On a lighter note, NY BB also tend to stay up later than FL BB. You can spot them in a petri dish. They're the ones in black.
