Novaluron is an insecticide which inhibits chitin synthesis, affecting the moulting stages of insect development. It acts by ingestion and contact and causes abnormal endocuticular deposition and abortive moulting. It is used in agriculture/horticulture on a wide range of crops including cotton, soya, maize, pome fruit, citrus, potato and vegetables against a wide range of pests. Novaluron is under evaluation by WHOPES as a mosquito larvicide.
