Indoxacarb is an oxadiazine pesticide developed by DuPont that acts against lepidopteran larvae. It is marketed under the names Indoxacarb Technical Insecticide, Steward Insecticide and Avaunt Insecticide. It is also used as the active ingredient in DuPont's line of commercial pesticides: Advion and Arilon.[1][2][3]

Its main mode of action is via blocking of nerve sodium channels. It is fairly lipophilic with a Kow of 4.65.

Household products[edit]

Indoxacarb is the active ingredient in a number of household insecticides, including cockroach and ant baits, and can remain active after digestion. [4] In 2012 DuPont's Professional Products including the line of Advion and Arilon products was purchased by Syngenta.[5] Indoxacarb is the active ingredient in the new pet product, Activyl from Merck Animal Health. It is marketed to kill fleas on dogs and cats.[6]
