19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Etoxazole is a mite growth regulator that causes adults to lay sterile eggs and stops existing eggs and nymphs developing. Control of these stages is generally achieved within 7 days. ParaMite also has translaminar and residual activity which means control of the population may last for four to five weeks. It does not control adult mites, which normally live
for up to two weeks. To give effective long term population control Etoxazole should be applied at the first signs of mite crawlers. Once large numbers of adults are present it may be necessary to also apply a miticide from a different group to control the adults immediately and reduce potential
damage.
Little effect of adult mites. These die over the few weeks after spraying without laying eggs so the population slowly declines.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups. Limit to once per season to reduce risk of resistance.

28. ENVIRONMENTAL FATE:

Summary - Toxic to aquatic organisms.
Birds - Low toxicity. LC50 Mallard duck > 2000 mg/kg
Fish - High toxicity.
LC50 Bluegill sunfish (96 hr static renewal) = 1.4 mg ai/L.
LC50 Rainbow trout (96 hr static renewal) = 2.8 mg ai/L
Invertebrates - High toxicity.

Bees - Low toxicity. LD50 Bees (48hr oral and contact) > 200 ìg/bee
Low toxicity to earthworms:
LC50 Earthworms (14 day) > 1000 mg ai/kg soil dry weight.
It has a half life in soil of < 2 weeks.
It has an EPA classification for soil mobility of immobile
Ground water contamination
Accumulation in milk and tissues.
Environmental fate: Etoxazole was not found to be persistent in soil/water environment. In field dissipation studies, etoxazole was shown to dissipate relatively quickly with a half life < 2 weeks. Etoxazole rapidly degrades through photolysis and is found to be immobile in a range of soils.
Summary of Environmental Persistence
Hydrolysis HaJf-life 161 days
Aqueous Pholtolyisis Half-life 17.4 days
Soil Photolysis Half-life 9.6 days
Aerobic Soil Metabolism Half-life 28 days (EPA t-test of 8 values)
Anaerobic Aquatic Metabolism Half·life 142 days
Field Dissipation Half-life 0.8 to 11.4 days.
