- ... Saponin extract from alfalfa roots, azadirachtin from the neem seed oil, synthetic ecdysteroid agonist RH-2485, and the juvenoid hydroprene disturb the development and reproduction of Tropinota squalida. Feeding beetles on diets containing 750 p.p.m. saponins, 7.5 p.p.m. RH-2485, and 1.13 p.p.m. azadirachtin reduces their progeny from 51 second instar larvae per female to 24, 15, and 15 larvae, re ...
