As a result of dispersal and adaptation in new regions, the Colorado potato beetle remains the primary pest of potatoes. In the Russian Federation, over the past decade, there has been a certain decrease in its distribution, caused by the development of more effective methods and means of protection. The strengths of the Colorado potato beetle, which create problems in protection against it, are high migratory abilities, reproductive potential, vitality, ecological plasticity, diversity and lability of the life cycle, close association with potatoes, phenomenal ability to develop resistance to insecticides. On the example of long-term observations in Azerbaijan, the adaptive response of the Colorado potato beetle to recent climatic changes is shown. The possibilities and prospects of agrotechnical, breeding, biotechnological, biological and chemical methods are considered. A review of the assortment and development of methods and means of protecting potatoes from the Colorado potato beetle leads to the conclusion that such an adaptive pest should be opposed with a diverse, flexible and dynamic integrated protection. In anti-resistant treatment strategies, alternating insecticides of different groups and the use of complex, 2-3-component preparations are practiced. One of the most new and interesting directions is the development of so called RNA insecticides. Their active principle is synthesized short RNA sequences that can block the expression of certain pest genes, disrupting its life activity. In tests against the Colorado beetle, they are used both by processing plants and by transgenic transfer to the genome of potato chloroplasts. Decoding the genome of the Colorado beetle, which occurred in 2018, did not reveal any special genetic systems associated with its resistance ability. At the same time, a significant role of short RNA molecules in regulating the action of genes was found, which allows us to count on the success of RNA interference. It is necessary to maintain and develop a broad base of methods, directions and means. Destructive measures continue to play the leading role in the system, among which more and more specific and safe ones appear. The reduction of the harmful status of the Colorado potato beetle to the level of an ordinary pest can be considered as a strategic development goal.
Key words: Colorado potato beetle, adaptive potential, potato protection, perspective methods and tools, integrated pest management
