Mode of action
Insecticide and acaricide with mainly stomach and some
contact action. Exhibits good translaminar
but limited systemic activity in plants.
Control of many species of insects and mites, including those
resistant to carbamate, organophosphate and pyrethroid insecticides
and also chitin-synthesis inhibitors, in cotton, vegetables,
citrus, top fruit, vines and soya beans. Among pests
resistant to conventional products which are controlled by chlorfenapyr are
Brevipalpus phoenicis (leprosis mite), Leptinotarsa decemli-neata
(Colorado potato beetle), Helicoverpa/Heliothis spp.,
Plutella xylostella (diamond-back moth) and Tetranychus spp.
Its use in resistance management programmes for control of various cotton pests is under evaluation.
