Chlorfenapyr is a new insecticide with novel mode of action can control pyrethroid resistant malaria vectors. This pesticide kills bug by disrupting enzymes in their mitochondria, the part of the cell that turns food into energy. Chlorfenapyr is one of a relatively new class of chemicals produced from microbes (the pyrroles). Chlorfenapyr does not become an active insecticide until after it enters its host. This novel mode of action reduces the potential for cross-resistance to other insecticides, making PYLON a good fit in a resistance management strategy
Chlorfenapyr is a member of the pyrrole class of insecticides (Group 13) and is the active ingredient contained in the commercial class products Pylon Miticide Insecticide and Mythic Insecticide. Pylon Miticide Insecticide is an insecticide/acaricide/nematicide for use on greenhouse ornamentals and some greenhouse fruiting vegetables. Chlorfenapyr is for use in limited applications to the exterior of buildings against various pests and as a pre-construction and post-construction termiticide.
Chlorfenapyr is used to control thrips on both ornamentals and vegetables, also it is effective on foliar nematodes, fungus gnats and
Oxidative removal in vivo of the N-ethoxymethyl group generates the active species, which is a mitochondrial uncoupler.
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 decemlineata (Colorado potato beetle), Helicoverpa spp., Heliothis spp., Plutella xylostella (diamond-back moth) and Tetranychus spp. Also control of many species of structural and household Formicidae (especially Camponotus, Iridomyrmex, Monomorium, and Solenopsis), Blattellidae (especially Blatta, Blattella, Periplaneta and Supella spp.), Kalotermitidae (especially Incisitermes) and Rhinotermitidae (especially Reticulitermes, Coptotermes, Heterotermes) at use rates of between 0.125 to 0.50% a.i. w/w.
