Mode of action Specific acaricide with contact action, and long residual activity. Inhibits embryo development. Uses Control of eggs and young motile stages (but not adults) of Panonychus ulmi and Tetranychus spp. on pome fruit and stone fruit (20 g/hl), citrus fruit (12.5-20 g/hl), nuts, vines (20 g/hl), hops, strawberries (200-300 g/ha), cucurbits (100-400 g/ha), cotton (150-250 g/ha), and ornamentals (20-30 g/hl). Has no effect on predatory mites or beneficial insect species. Phytotoxicity May cause slight injury to glasshouse roses. May cause a slight pink deposit on petals of white or pale flowers. Formulation types SC; WP. Selected tradenames: 'Apollo' (Aventis)

'Acaristop' (Aventis); 'Apolo' (Aventis); 'Cara' (Aventis); 'Niagara' (Rocca)

Animals In mammals, undergoes metabolism by hydroxylation and exchange of the chlorine atoms on the rings for methylthio groups. Following oral administration, excretion occurs within 24-48 hours in the urine and faeces. Plants In metabolism studies, unchanged clofentezine was the major extractable residue. Trace amounts (4%) of 2-chlorobenzonitrile, the major photodegradation product, were also detected. Soil/Environment In soil, the major degradation route leads to 2-chlorobenzoic acid, and finally to CO2. DT50 in soil 65-85 d (15 ), 28-56 d (25 ), depending upon soil type. However, in laboratory studies, no leaching occurs. In water, 2-chlorobenzonitrile is the major product formed by hydrolysis and photodegradation, with smaller amounts of other compounds. Low solubility in water makes determination of soil adsorption constants difficult.
