Pyriproxyfen is a pyridine based pesticide which is found to be effective against a variety of arthropoda. It was introduced to the US in 1996 to protect cotton crops against whitefly. It has also found use protecting other crops and can also be used as a treatment for cat fleas.

Pyriproxyfen is a juvenile hormone analogue, preventing larvae from developing into adulthood and thus rendering them unable to reproduce.

In the US pyriproxyfen is often marketed under the trade name Nylar.
