Tebufenozide is an insecticide that acts as a molting hormone. It is an agonist of ecdysone that causes premature molting in larvae. It is primarily used against caterpillar pests.[2]

Because it has high selectivity for the targeted pests and low toxicity otherwise, the company that discovered tebufenozide, Rohm and Haas, was given a Presidential Green Chemistry Award for its development.[2]
