Chlordimeform is an acaricide (pesticide) active mainly against motile forms of mites and ticks and against eggs and early instars of some Lepidoptera insects.[1] After the International Agency for Research on Cancer reported sufficient evidence that its major metabolite, 4-chloro-o-toluidine, was a carcinogen, its use has ceased and its registration has been withdrawn in most countries.[1]
