About Indoxacarb

Indoxacarb belongs to oxadiazine insecticides. Oxadiazine is a new sodium channel blocker insecticide developed in the United States at the end of the 20th century. Indoxacarb is a typical representative of oxadiazine insecticides and the first commercial sodium channel blocker insecticide. Indoxacarb is a safe, broad-spectrum, low-risk and environment-friendly ingredient. It can work through both contact and gastric poisoning modes. Indoxacarb has multiple effects on sodium channels, neurons and GABAA receptors of insects. It has an inhibiting effect on the sodium channels of insects’ nerve cells. When this ingredient is applied to insects, their nerve impulses will be blocked. It will paralyze the insect’s feeding organs and prevent it from feeding properly. And eventually, the pests will die from the constant lack of energy.

Indoxacarb was first licensed for use in Spain in 1998 for horticultural crops and cotton. In 2000, insecticide products containing indoxacarb began its application in the pest control of vegetables and cotton in several African countries. In 2000-2001, indoxacarb was licensed in the United States and several European countries for the pest control of fruits, vegetables, cotton and crops. For indoor environments, indoxacarb can be used to make pest-killing gels or baits to control health pests such as termites, cockroaches, red imported fire ants and leeches. Its spray and bait products can be applied to control lawn pests such as worms, weevils and mole crickets. Indoxacarb does not produce cross resistance when it is used with pyrethroids, organophosphorus, carbamate and other insecticide ingredients. So, it is especially suitable for the comprehensive pest control and resistance management.

Advantages of Indoxacarb

1. Indoxacarb has a wide insecticidal range and pest coverage. It also has the unique mode of action that is not found in other insecticide ingredients.
2. Indoxacarb will be highly attractive to target insects when it is used in baits. Pests will easily be lured to eat the bait containing indoxacarb and pass it on to other pests.
3. Indoxacarb can remain effective in three generations of cockroaches. A single-time application of the products containing indoxacarb can lead to the elimination of a large group of cockroaches.
4. Indoxacarb can be used in combination with most insecticide ingredients to extend its insecticidal range such as methylamino abamectin benzoate, avermectin, etc. And there will be no adverse reactions when they are used together.
5. There will be no cross-resistance produced when indoxacarb is applied with pyrethroid, organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides.

Disadvantages of Indoxacarb

1. Indoxacarb acts slowly. It may take several days for the insects that have ingested this ingredient to die. If there is a large-scale pest problem, there will be no favorable killing effect witnessed in a short period of time. Therefore, in this case, it is recommended to use it in combination with other insecticides to achieve a better result.
2. Indoxacarb could not effectively kill cockroaches that have already developed a relatively strong resistance.

For Pests:

Ants are social insects. The harms of ants can be summarized as biting, spreading disease, polluting the environment and damaging building structures. Ants cause direct economic losses through their bites and pollution. And the indirect losses by spreading diseases and endangering human health are far greater than the direct losses. Ant bites often cause red papules. As ants crawl around, they mechanically carry harmful bacteria and viruses that contaminate food, clothing, and household appliances. Ants can also damage building structures by the building of their nests or colonies.


Termites are social insects. They were once classified at the taxonomic rank of infraorder Isoptera. But they were later classified at blattaria based on molecular biological evidences. Research suggests that termites originated in the Cretaceous period. There are more than 3,000 species of termites. They are widely distributed around the globe except Antarctica, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Termites are polymorphic social insects. The population of their colonies vary, ranging from a few hundred to millions. Termites are main decomposers of wood and plant tissues. So, the damage of termites to human beings is mainly reflected in their serious damage to wood furniture, house structure, crops, trees, and river dams. In each year, it is estimated that termites will cause a direct economic loss of tens of billions of dollars around the world.
