Organophosphates, carbamates, insect growth regulators (juvenile growth hormones), and ovicides
are some examples of insecticides.
Our assessment of their efficacies as ovicides
is based on the failure of nymphs to hatch from eggs treated with these insecticides rather than an observation that nymphs hatched and were subsequently exposed to insecticides and died.
In addition to application as general toxicants against mosquitoes, phytochemicals may also have potential uses as larvicides, repellents, ovicides
and oviposition deterrents, and growth and reproduction inhibitors (1,2).
