    The green colored beetles are more likely to go extinct first since they arent pesticide-resistant and they are a pure breed. pure breeds arent exactly ok with changes in environment compared to mixed breeds. due to this pure breeds are less likely to adapt and thus become extinct first (or at least sooner) than other breeds.
