Assessment Topic

Methoxyfenozide is a diacylhydrazine insecticide and is active against lepidopterous insects (moths and butterflies). Methoxyfenozide has a mode of action that mimics the action of the molting hormone of Lepidopterous (moths, butterflies) larvae. Upon ingestion, methoxyfenozide selectively binds to the ecdysone receptors of lepidopterous larvae. The larvae then stop feeding and undergo an incomplete and developmentally premature molt which kills the insects within a few days.
