The rationale of “green pesticides” in food security is to use information about endogenous hormones of pest insects to make peptide mimetics that will act against the pest insects to alter their behaviour or physiology, while taking care not to harm beneficial insects or other organisms in the food chain. Such “green” insecticides are designed thus, on the basis of neuropeptide ligand–receptor interaction and it is of paramount interest to have finally a mimetic at hand that is harmful only to… Expand
