Effect of the insect growth regulator fenoxycarb on the ovaries of queens of the red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)



Effect of the insect growth regulator fenoxycarb on the ovaries of queens of the red imported fire ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)



Annals of the Entomological Society of America 814: 642-648



The insect growth regulator fenoxycarb causes retrogression of the ovaries of mated queens of the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta. Fenoxycarb completely suppressed growth of the follicular epithelium, nurse cells and cytoplasm/yolkplasm. Most developing eggs were resorbed and no new workers were produced. Thus, prolonged exposures of the queen to the compound caused death of the entire colony.
