Other Name:methyl (S)-7-chloro-2,5-dihydro-2-[[(methoxycarbonyl)[4-(trifluoromethoxy)phenyl]amino]carbonyl]-indeno[1,2-e][1,3,4]oxadiazine-4a(3H)-carboxylate
CAS Number: [ 144171-61-9 ]
Molecular Formula: C22H17ClF3N3O7
Indoxacarb, a broad spectrum foliar insecticide, is registered for use on a broad range of crops,
which include fruits (apples, pears, and tomatoes), vegetables (bok choy, broccoli, Brussels
sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, corn, eggplant, kohlrabi, peas, peppers, potatoes,
and lettuce), soybeans, alfalfa, and cotton. It controls or suppresses many insects, including beet
armyworm, cabbage looper, corn earworm, diamondback moth, fall armyworm, imported
cabbageworm, southern armyworm, tomato pinworm, and tomato fruitworm.
Indoxacarb possesses both larvicidal and ovicidal activity. As a larvicide, it is active by ingestion
and/or absorption into the insect. The importance of the entry route varies with the species
affected and the crop situation. Once indoxacarb is absorbed or ingested, feeding cessation
generally occurs within 2 to 8 hours. Indoxacarb kills by binding to a site on the sodium channels
and blocking the flow of sodium ions into nerve cells resulting in impaired nerve function,
feeding cessation, paralysis, and death.
Indoxacarb is believed as a “reduced-risk” pesticide and is considered an organophosphate
replacement because its moderate to lower acute and chronic toxicity and does not cause mutagenic, carcinogenic,
developmental, or reproductive effects.
Blocks sodium channels in nerve cells.
Mode of action
Insecticide active by contact and ingestion. Affected insects cease feeding, with poor co-ordination, paralysis and ultimately death.
Use for broad-spectrum control of Lepidoptera in cotton, vegetables and fruit, at 12.5-125 g/ha.
