Phenylethers as Insect Growth Regulators: Laboratory and Field Experiments

  • R. C. Zurflueh

Abstract

The usefulness of most reported insect growth regulators (IGR’s) having juvenile hormone (JH) activity is limited by their instability under environmental conditions. Reports on the acute toxicity of several candidate compounds to mammalian and wildlife species showed that they are only slightly toxic. It would therefore be valuable to have more stable compounds with otherwise similar chemical and “insecticidal” properties. This report shows our progress towards the development of such compounds.
