Clofentizine is a miticide used to protect againt spider mites in food and non-food crops in fields, orchards, and greenhouses. It is used with almonds, apples, apricots, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, persimmons, prunes, plums, and walnuts.
At levels reasonably expected through intake, as well as in tests of exposure expected for persons harvesting crops, no toxicity or irritation is expected or has been reported.
Clofentezine can persist in soil and contribute to pesticide runoff into water sources. Acute or chronic exposure can affect fish. Acute contact with clofentezine can be damaging to honey bees.
