Abstract

A brief overview is presented of the discovery and development of s-methoprene and some other juvenile hormone mimics. The identification of the natural juvenile hormones is described along with an outline of the part they play in the hormonal control of insect development. The properties and commercial applications of s-methoprene are presented with emphasis on its use in mosquito control and its minimal impact on the environment.
