Sixty compounds, comprising a large variety of structures, were tested in the laboratory for juvenile hormone (HI) activity against the pests Lygus lineolaris (Palisot de Beauvois),A phis gossypii Glover, Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Boisduval). and beneficial predators Chrysopa carnea Stephens, Geocoris punctipes (Say), Hippodamia convergens Geerin-Meneville that are associated with cotton. Against L. lincolaris, some compounds-particularly those with an unsaturated arylterpenoid structure-evoked a significant JH response. However, the activity was relatively low, and compounds that affected this species also had a deleterious effect on some of the beneficial species. The JH analogue ZR-512 had sufficient activity against A. gossypii to merit additional investigation, but none affected T. cinnabarinus except at extremely high doses.
