Abstract Insect growth regulators (IGRs) represent a relatively new category of insect control agents aimed mainly at covering the need for safer compounds and overcoming the development o f resistance to 'classical' insecticides. The various types of IGR are reviewed here by Jean-Francois Graf and their mechanism of action, their practical application and their respective advantages and limitations are discussed. A comprehensive assessment is made of current and future prospects for IGRs in insect and ectoparasite control.
