Flupyrazofos (O,O-diethyl-O-(1-phenyl-3-trifluoromethyl-5-pyrazoyl)thiophosphoric acid ester) is a new organo-phosphorous insecticide. Flupyrazofos has exhibited excellent activity against diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella, DBM), and it is highly activity against rice armyworm(Pseudaleta separata) and cotton caterpillar(Palpita indicae). Flupyrazofos has then revealed outstanding both rapidity and residual action for DBM, although no systemic actions were observed and no cross-resistances were found to the resistance strains (Op-R, Py-R, IGR-R). Also, susceptibilities of five local strains to flupyrazofos were similar to those of the susceptible strain. These results indicate that flupyrazofos has considerable potential for controlling diamondback moth, rice armyworm and cotton caterpillar in field.
