Methoprene is one of the many chemicals found in cigarettes.

Methoprene is an insectide used to kill fleas and other insect pests. It is also (more specifically) defined as a larvicid. For example, it is used to kill mosquito larvae before they reach adulthood. It acts by disrupting the action of a growth hormone in certain insects.

Methoprene was first registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (US Agency) in 1975. Then in 1997 the EPA issued an unconditional re-registration of Altosid (brand name for methoprene) in all of its forms.
