Abstract:Of 29 materials (11 juvenile hormone analogues, 9 potential chemosterilants, and 9 plant extracts), a series of 6 related juvenile hormone analogues when applied topically at rates as low as 0.001 μg had morphogenetic activity against pupae of Stomoxys calcilrans (L.). Chemosterilants and extracts of Pinus mugo Turra, Taxus balcata L., Picea glauca (Moench) Voss, A bies holophylla Maxim., and Phragmites communis Trill. had no morphogenetic effects. The active analogues also affected larval and adult stages of the stable fly hut not the egg stage; three severely inhibited fertility when applied topically to newly eclosed adults.
