All 4 instars of Epilachna varieties Mulsant, when confined with bean plants dipped in solutions containing the ecdysteroid 22,25.bisdeoxyecdysone (BDE) , exhibited lethal molting abnormalities. Treated 4th instars molted precociously into dwarf neotenic f01'l11s,often with abnormal wing pad extension. Newly emerged females con fined [or 10 days With beans that had been dipped into a solution containing 100 ppm o[ BDE were sterilized permanently. ovipositing females confined for 7 days Slopped oviposition by the 3rd day and gradually reduced their feeding 10 17% that of the controls 8-10 days after Treatment began.

Several juvenile hormone compounds and insecticide synergists synergized BDE on 4th instars and adult females. Males. When ovipositing females were confined in field cages with beans sprayed once with a mixture of 50 ppm of BDE + 250 ppm each of sesamex and (E) -4.[ (6,7- epoxy.3.ethyl-7 .U\ethyl-2-nonenyl) oxy]- 1.2- (methylenedioxy) benzene, viable egg production did not exceed ]2% that of the controls for any 5-day period during the following 30 days.
