Abstract The control of stored product insects with insect growth regulators (IGRs) was heralded in the 1970s as a potentially valuable alternative to the use of traditional insecticides. Initially, the IGRs included compounds that mimicked the insects' own juvenile hormone. Subsequently, chitin synthesis inhibitors and ecdysteroid agonists have been added to the list of available IGRs. Extensive laboratory studies have been conducted on the physiological and biochemical effects of IGRs on… Expand
Advances in integrating insect growth regulators into storage pest management.
TLDR
The use of IGRs can easily be integrated into pest management strategies to control stored-product insects in bulk grain and in milling, processing, and storage facilities. Expand
Hydroprene: Mode of action, current status in stored-product pest management, insect resistance, and future prospects $
TLDR
Hydroprene can be considered as an alternative to conventional insecticides because of its specific activity against immature insect stages, low persistence in the environment, and virtually non-toxic effects on mammals. Expand
Hydroprene : Mode of action , current status in stored-product pest management , insect resistance , and future prospects
The insect growth regulator (IGR) hydroprene is a juvenile hormone analogue used in urban and stored-product insect control programs in the United States and in other developed countries. HydropreneExpand
Methoprene and control of stored-product insects
TLDR
The history and present use of methoprene is addressed with special emphasis on stored-product protection, which has received broad attention and has been tested over decades for its direct lethal effects, but many recent studies focus more on sub-lethal effects. Expand
Insect Hormones (as Pesticides)
TLDR
Novel utility of IGR products like augmenting the mass production of baculoviruses, enhancing the utility of entomopathogens, transovarian ovicidal action, monitoring cum baiting solutions for termites, and long-term persistency have enlarged the scope of pest management paradigms. Expand
Efficacy of insect growth regulators as grain protectants against two stored-product pests in wheat and maize.
TLDR
Temperature at the levels examined in the present study did not appear to affect the overall performance in a great extent of the tested IGRs in terms of adult mortality or suppression of progeny production against P. truncatus in treated maize. Expand
An Overview of Insect Growth Disruptors; Applied Aspects
TLDR
This chapter reviews the commercial insecticides that mimic the mode of action of the insect growth and development hormones, the sesquiterpenoid juvenile hormones and the steroidal 20-hydroxyecdysone and the third class of insecticide that disrupt growth andDevelopment by interfering with chitin synthesis in target insect pests.

Residual Efficacy of Pyriproxyfen on Grain Commodities Against Stored Product Insect Pests
TLDR
Results show that pyriproxyfen has potential for residual control of O. surinamensis, T. castaneum and T.granarium, and may be used for replacement of conventional neurotoxic insecticides for managing the insect pests of stored commodities. Expand
Residual toxicities of synergized pyrethrins and methoprene applied as aerosol insecticides
TLDR
Evaluated aerosol applications of two aerosol concentrations on flour and finished stored-product packaging materials for the control of Tribolium spp. Expand
TRANSGENERATIONAL EFFECT OF INSECT GROWTH REGULATORS ON THE Trogoderma granarium (EVERTS) (COLEOPTERA: DERMESTIDAE) UNDER DIFFERENT ABIOTIC FACTORS
The 9-20% post-harvest losses by stored grain pests were recorded worldwide (Phillips and Thorne, 2010). Insect pest causes alterations in the chemical structure of the products by destroying theExpand

TLDR
The term juvenile hormone (JH) is used for the natural hormones, IGR when compounds are used with an intention to control pests, and on occasion JHA for less defined situations, and IGR, JH, and JHA may therefore occasionally be used forThe same compound. Expand
Use of a Juvenile Hormone Analogue as Insecticide for Pests of Stored Grain
TLDR
The possibility of using a chemical analogue of juvenile hormone—methyl 3,7, 11-trimethyl-7,11-dichloro-2-dodecenoate4 (MTDD)—in controlling the multiplication of stored grain pests is explored and the preliminary results are reported. Expand
Residual Activity of Insect Growth Regulators Against Stored-Product Beetles in Grain Commodities
TLDR
Data on the residual activity of BAY SIR 8514, ditlubenzuron, and methoprene against S. oryzae in stored wheat showed that dit LUBenzuron was more active than Bays Sir 8514 and metHoprene, and this compound provided 96 to >99% control at 2 weeks to 12 months post treatment. Expand
Activity of new juvenile hormone analogues on a stored food insect, Tribolium confusum (J. du Val) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
KA1488 was found to be the most effective compound, and it inhibited completely the development of the F 1 generation at a concentration of 5 ppm, and showed the highest JH-activity when tested in the Galleria bioassay against the standards methoprene and JH III. Expand

Chlorfluazuron provided the most effective control of all four stored-product pest species, including the weevil, S. oryzae, after exposure to wheat treated with five benzoylphenyl ureas (BPUs), members of the chitin-synthesis inhibitor group of insect growth regulators (IGRs). Expand
Effects of the Synthetic Insect Growth Regulators Methoprene and Hydroprene on Survival, Development or Reproduction of Six Species of Stored-products Insects
TLDR
Six species of stored-products insects were reared on diets treated with methoprene and hydroprene at 1, 5, 10, and 20 ppm to prevent emergence of pupae and inhibit progeny production by Sitophilus granarius and S. oryzae. Expand
