Chemicals which interfere and induce alterations in the development and growth processes of insects are commonly known as insect hormones, hormone mimics, insect developmental inhibitors, morphogenic agents, and insect growth regulators (IGRs). The effectiveness and potential use of IGRs have been recently reported extensively in the entomological literature. The types of IGRs studied to date include insect juvenile hormones (JHs) and their synthetic analogs (JHAs), chitin synthesis inhibitors (CSIs), and other substances manifesting growth modifying properties.
