Laboratory and field evaluation and structure activity relationships of some aryl terpenoid ethers as insect growth regulators against anopheles quadrimaculatus anopheles albimanus and aedes taeniorhynchus



Laboratory and field evaluation and structure activity relationships of some aryl terpenoid ethers as insect growth regulators against anopheles quadrimaculatus anopheles albimanus and aedes taeniorhynchus



Journal of Economic Entomology 73(3): 443-448



Insect growth regulators (11) of the aryl terpenoid ether type had LC-90 values .ltoreq. 0.020 ppm in laboratory tests against larvae of A. quadrimaculatus Say; 13 others had LC-90 values < 0.100 ppm. In further tests against larvae of A. albimanus Wiedemann and Aedes taeniorhynchus (Wiedemann), 6 aryl ethers containing the 3,4-methylenedioxy group had LC-90 values .ltoreq. 0.020 ppm in 11 of the 12 tests. 5-[[6-(3,3-Dimethyloxiranyl)-4-methyl-3-hexenyl]oxy]-1,3-benzodioxole showed outstanding activity against all 3 spp. LC-90 values ranged from 0.011-0.0007 ppm. 3-[6-(3-Ethylphenoxy)-3-methyl-3-hexenyl]-2,2-dimethyloxirane was ineffective against A. taeniorhynchus, but it had LC-90 values of 0.001 and 0.0003 against Anopheles quadrimaculatus and A. albimanus, respectively, and was the most active chemical against the 2 anopheline species. In small-plot field tests against A. quadrimaculatus, 5-[[7-(3,3-dimethyloxiranyl)-5-methyl-3-heptenyl]oxy]-1,3-benzodioxole, 3-[6-(3-ethylphenoxy)-3-methyl-3-hexenyl]-2,2-dimethyloxirane and 2,2-dimethyl-3-[3-methyl-6-(4-propylphenoxy)-3-hexenyl]oxirane were the 3 most effective chemicals and gave 100% control of eclosion at a rate of 56 g/ha and .gtoreq. 90% control at a rate of 11 g/ha; 5 others gave 100% control at a rate of 112 g/ha.
