Benfuracarb
Last updated: 25/06/2019
(Also known as: OK 174; aminofuracarb)

SUMMARY
Benfuracarb is a carbamate insecticide and nematicide that does not have EU regulatory approval for use. It has a low aqueous solubility, is relatively volatile and is not expected to leach to groundwater. It is not persistent in soil or water systems. It has a moderate mammalian toxicity with a low bioaccumulation potential. It is highly toxic to most aquatic organisms, birds and honeybees but slightly less so to earthworms.
GENERAL INFORMATION
Description

Example pests controlled
Diamond back moth; Aphids; Cockroaches; Grain beetle; Springtails; Wireworms; Rootworms; Loopers; Borers
