Propoxur is an insecticide used against mosquitoes in outdoor areas, for flies in agricultural settings, for fleas and ticks on pets, on lawns and turf for ants, on flowering plants, and in private dwellings and public buildings.
Introduced in 1959, Propoxur is not used on food crops and is one of the chemicals that have replaced DDT in the control of black flies and mosquitoes.
