Abstract

Toxaphene is a mixture of compounds formed by chlorination of camphene (67–69% chlorine). It is a powerful contact and stomach insecticide with some acaricidal action. It is not phytotoxic, is toxic to fish, and is moderately toxic to mammals. It is used against army worms, boll weevil, bollworm, cotton aphid, cotton fleahopper, cotton leafworm, grasshopper, rapid plant bug, southern green stink bug, tarnished plant bug, and thrips.
