Abstract

Mixtures of 5,6,7,7a-tetrahydro-3H-pyrrolizin-3-one (1) and 5,6,7,7a-tetrahydro-3H-pyrrolizin-7a-ol-3-one (2) isolated from shaken cultures ofStreptomyces griseus exhibited contact killing effects on larvae ofLeptinotarsa decemlineata andAedes aegypti comparable with those of macrotetrolides and the commercial bioinsecticide Bactoculicid, respectively.Galleria mellonella (caterpillars),Anagasta kühniella andTetranychus urticae were insensitive to this action.
