Juvenile hormone analogues, methoprene and fenoxycarb
dose dependently enhance certain enzyme activities in the silkworm Bombyx mori (L.
It is a fenoxycarb
derivative in which a part of the aliphatic chain replaced by pyridyl oxyethylene.
Seasonal trends in effectiveness of hydramethylnon (AMDRO) and fenoxycarb
(LOGIC) for control of red imported fire ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).
Edwards and Abraham (1985) observed low toxicity to vertebrates of some IGR in their study, such as methoprene and fenoxycarb
, and suggested that these compounds could be administered via feed in poultry raising, remaining biologically active even after passing through the poultry digestive tract.
afenoxycarb (insecticide): the RAC agreed with the proposal from Germany to classify fenoxycarb
as a substance suspected of causing cancer in humans and as very toxic to the aquatic environment with acute and long-lasting effects
Response of the subterranean termite Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) to soil treated with microencapsulated fenoxycarb
has minimal impacts on non-target species, and its application has resulted in increased densities of native ants (Zakharov and Thompson, 1998).

Use of fenoxycarb
followed by acephate for spot eradication of imported fire ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae).
Examples that appear on the current stock list include insect growth regulators, such as fenoxycarb
and methoprene, and microbial pesticides, such as Bacillus thuringiensis and spinosad.
