Fenoxycarb is a carbamate insect growth regulator.[1] It has a low toxicity for bees, birds, and humans, but is toxic to fish.[citation needed] The oral LD50 for rats is greater than 16,800 mg/kg.[2]

Fenoxycarb is non-neurotoxic and does not have the same mode of action as other carbamate insecticides. Instead, it prevents immature insects from reaching maturity by mimicking juvenile hormone.[3][4]
