About Fenpyroximate

FENPYROXIMATE is a proven acaricide for control of most phytophagous mites on various crops, and is used in more than 50 countries around the world. European trade names include: Danitron, Dinamite, Flash UM, Kendo, Kiron, Ortus and Samba K.


  • Fenpyroximate is a METI acaricide (mitochondrial electron transport (Complex 1) inhibitor / IRAC 21A).
  • Broad spectrum acaricide: effective against spider mites, eriophyid mites, tarsonemid mites.
  • Effective on multiple mite growth stages: larva, nymph, adult.
  • Gives fast knock-down action after treatment.
  • Fenpyroximate provides rapid "stop feeding" action thus minimizing crop damage.
  • Provides long-lasting control when applied at the recommended dose rate. Also inhibits oviposion by females, which further increases the  length of control.
  • No cross resistance with conventional acaricides outside the METI group.
  • Safe on non-target organisms and beneficials.
  • Fenpyroximate is a contact material, thus thorough coverage is essential for optimum efficacy. Addition of adjuvants/oils improves efficacy.
