 Title    Inhibition of Oogenesis and Ovarian Ecdysteroid Synthesis by Azadirachtin in Locusta migratoria migratorioides (R. & F.)  
 Abstract    The sterilizing effect of azadirachtin, an insect growth regulator from the neem tree, Azadirachta indica A. Juss, was tested with mature females o f Locusta migratoria. After a single injection of 10 |ig into females between 2 and 13 days after emergence, about 60% died during the following four days and all lost weight in the range of about 50%. If the compound was injected into animals of an age between 2 and 10 days, no maturation o f the terminal oocytes could be observed. Injection at an age between 10 and 13 days after adult emergence resulted in ovaries which contained almost mature oocytes. Most o f the treated locusts had no oviposition and only traces of ecdysteroids were present in their ovaries, as quantified by radioimmunoassay. The inhibition of oogenesis and o f ovarian ecdysteroid synthesis by azadirachtin is discussed on the basis of its interference with the neuroendocrine control of hormone synthesis.

 Title    Feeding and Molt Inhibition by Azadirachtins A, B, and 7-Acetyl-azadirachtin A in Rhodnius prolixus Nymphs  
 Abstract    Development The antifeedant and antimolting effects of azadirachtins A and B, and of a synthetic derivative, 7-acetyl-azadirachtin A were examined. Given through a blood meal, the effective dose (E D 50) for the antifeedant effect ranged from 25 to 30 ng/ml of blood for the three compounds. ATP, a phagostimulant, also given orally, reversed the antifeedant action of azadirachtin A. The ED50 values for molt inhibition were 0.04, 0.015, and 0.45 (ig/ml of blood for azadirachtins A, B, and 7-acetyl-azadirachtin A, respectively. The mechanisms of feeding and molt inhibitions by azadirachtin A B, and its 7-acetyl-azadirachtin A derivative are discussed.
