The compound [3,5-di- (α,α,α-trifluoromethyl) -N-ethyl-anilino] methylenemalononitrile, tested under the code number MON-0856, was selectively toxic to insects. High activity was exhibited to Lepidoptera larvae; moderate activity was obtained against Coleoptera; and low activity was noted against Diptera, as well as against parasitic Hymenoptera and predaceous Heteroptera. It was active upon topical application to larvae, by foliar application to plants, and systemically in plants when applied to the soil.
