Two polyclonal antibodies and three monoclonal antibodies specific to the etofenprox insecticide were prepared from rabbits and mice, respectively. The monoclonal antibodies were more reactive with etofenprox than the polyclonal antibodies by C-ELISA. Monoclonal antibody cl 205-65 was found to be the most tolerant to methanol, most highly reactive and most specific to etofenprox among the antibodies tested.
