Biochemistry Chitin synthesis inhibitor; and so interferes with the formation of the insect cuticle. This action is quite specific; related biochemical processes, such as chitin synthesis in fungi, and biosynthesis of hyaluronic acid and other mucopolysaccharides in chickens, mice and rats are not affected. Mode of action Non-systemic insect growth regulator with contact and stomach action. Acts at time of insect moulting, or at hatching of eggs. Uses For control of a wide range of leaf-eating insects in forestry, woody ornamentals and fruit. Controls certain major pests in cotton, soya beans, citrus, tea, vegetables and mushrooms. Also controls larvae of flies, mosquitoes, grasshoppers and migratory locusts. Used as an ectoparasiticide on sheep for control of lice, fleas and blowfly larvae. Due to its selectivity and rapid degradation in soil and water, diflubenzuron has no or only a slight effect on the natural enemies of various harmful insect species. These properties make it suitable for inclusion in integrated control programmes. Diflubenzuron is effective at 25-75 g a.i./ha against most leaf-feeding insects in forestry; in concentrations of 0.01-0.015% a.i. against codling moth, leaf miners and other leaf-eating insects in top fruit; in concentrations of 0.0075-0.0125% a.i. against citrus rust mite in citrus; and at a dosage of 50-150 g a.i./ha against a number of pests in cotton (cotton boll weevil, armyworms, leafworms), soya beans (soya bean looper complex) and maize (armyworms). Also for control of larvae of mushroom flies in mushroom casing (1 g a.i./m2); mosquito larvae (25-100 g a.i./ha); fly larvae in animal housings (0.5-1 g a.i./m2 surface); and locusts and grasshoppers (60-67.5 g a.i./ha). Formulation types GR; HN; OF; SC; UL; WG; WP. Compatibility Incompatible with strongly alkaline products. Selected tradenames: 'Dimilin' (Uniroyal); 'Hilmilin' (Hindustan)

Product analysis by hplc (CIPAC Proc., 1981, 3, 185; AOAC Methods, 1995, 983.07; A. van Rossum et al., Anal. Methods Pestic. Plant Growth Regul., 1984, 13, 165). Residues determined by hplc or glc after hydrolysis to 4-chloroaniline which is converted to a derivative (B. Rabenort et al., ibid., 1978, 10, 57).

Not a skin irritant; slight eye irritant (rabbits). Not a skin sensitiser (guinea-pigs). Inhalation LC50 for rats >2.88 mg/l. NOEL (2 y) for rats 40 mg/kg diet. No teratogenic, mutagenic, or oncogenic effect was observed. ADI (JMPR) 0.02 mg/kg b.w. [1985]; 0.02 (JECFA evaluation) [1994]. Other Acute i.p. LD50 for mice >2150 mg/kg. Toxicity class WHO (a.i.) III (Table 5); EPA (formulation) III

Birds Dietary LC50 (8 d) for bobwhite quail and mallard ducks >4640 mg/kg diet. Fish LC50 (96 h) for zebra fish (Brachydanio rerio) >0.2, rainbow trout >0.2 mg/l. Daphnia LC50 (48 h) 7.1 mg/l. Algae LC50 for Selenastrum capricornutum >0.3 mg/l. Other aquatic spp. LC50 for molluscs >200 mg/l. Bees Not hazardous to bees and predatory insects; LD50 (oral and contact) >100 mg/bee.

EHC 184 (WHO, 1996). Animals In rats, following oral administration, elimination is partly as the unchanged parent compound in the faeces, partly as hydroxylated metabolites (for c. 80%) and as 4-chlorophenylurea plus 2,6-difluorobenzoic acid (for c. 20%). The intestinal absorption is strongly related to the dosage administered - the higher the dosage, the more (relatively) is excreted unchanged in the faeces. See A. Verloop & C. D. Ferrell, ACS Symp. Series, 1977, No. 37, 237. Plants Non-systemic. Not metabolised on plants (idem, ibid.). Soil/Environment Diflubenzuron is strongly absorbed by soil/humic acid complex and is virtually immobile in soil. Rapidly degraded in soil, with a half-life of <7 days. The principal degradation products are 4-chlorophenylurea and 2,6-difluorobenzoic acid (idem, ibid.).
