G.D. Thompson, P.W. Borth, M.C. Shaw, R.W. Huckaba, B.A. Nead, L.G. Peterson, J.M. Richardson, D.J. Porteous


Naturalyte Insect Control is the name for DowElanco's new proprietary biologically based Insect Control Products. Naturalytes are defined as naturally produced metabolites from living organisms that selectively control pests. To qualify within DowElanco's naturalyte class, the metabolites must possess a high level of efficacy that is equivalent or superior to commercial standards and at the same time possess human and environmental compatibility that is equivalent to that provided by most biological products. The technical properties of spinosad, the active ingredient in the first naturalyte insect control product, results of a 1995 EUP, and developmental timelines are briefly reviewed.
