Larvae of the house fly, Musca domestica L. and the blow fly, Phormia regina (Meig.) were treated with a juvenile hormone analogue Stauffer R-20458 (6, 7-epoxygeranyl (p-ethyl) phenyl ether) at various concentrations. Flies were reared on artificial diets and were tested within 48 hours after ec1osion. A definite dosage-efficiency correlation was observed and abnormalities in addition to death before pupation and emergence was recorded in treated larvae.
