Effects of juvenile hormone analogue (JHA) application on individuals injected with cycle (cyc) double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) in Riptortus pedestris. dsRNA of cyc, β-lactamase (bla) or saline was injected into females maintained continuously under short-day conditions. Five days after the injection, JHA or ethanol was applied topically to the abdomen and the reproductive status was checked 10 days after application. Bars with the same letters are not significantly different (Tukey-type multiple comparisons for proportions, P > 0.05).
