Abstract:Several aziridine analogues of juvenile hormone mimics were prepared and applied topically to pupae of the yellow mealworm, Tenebrio molitor L., and the large milkweed hug, Oncopeltus fasciatus (Dallas). Coapplications were made with a mixture of isomers of one of the Plalysamia cecropia (L.) juvenile hormones. The aziridines synergized the hormonal activity of the mixture. The effect was maximal at a 2:1 ratio of synergist to hormone mixture.
