The newly-hatched nymphs of the small brown planthopper (SBPH), Laodelphax striatellus, including field and sensitive populations, were subjected to the high-temperature (35°C) treatment. The number of yeast-like endosymbiotes in SBPH reduced by 23.47%-34.23%, 57.86%-61.51% and 88.96%-90.71% after the high-temperature treatment for 1 d, 2 d, and 3 d, respectively. However, the size of yeast-like endosymbiotes was not obviously affected. Resistance of SBPH to three insecticides (imidacloprid,
