DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION
PROBLEMS TO BE SOLVED BY THE INVENTION
For many years, many pesticides have been used, but many of them have various problems such that the effects are inadequate, their use is restricted as pests have acquired resistance, etc. Accordingly, it is desired to develop a novel pesticide substantially free from such problems, for example, a pesticide capable of controlling various pests which create problems in agricultural and horticultural fields or a pesticide which is capable of controlling pests parasitic on animals. MEANS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS
The present inventors have conducted various studies on anthranilamide compounds in an effort to find a superior pesticide.

The pesticides against parasites on animals are
effective for controlling e.g. external parasites which
are parasitic on the body surface of host animals (such
as the back, the axilla, the lower abdomen or inside of
the thigh) or internal parasites which are parasitic in
the body of host animals (such as the stomach, the
intestinal tract, the lung, the heart, the liver, the
blood vessels, the subcutis or lymphatic tissues), but
they are particularly effective for controlling the
external parasites.
The external parasites may, for example,-be animal parasitic acarina or fleas. Their species are so many that it is difficult to list all of them, and therefore, their typical examples will be given.
The animal parasitic acarina may, for example, be ticks such as Boophilus microplus, Rhipicephalus sangiiineus, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Haemaphysa 1 is flava, Haemaphysalis campanulata, Haemaphysalis concinna, Haemaphysalis japonica, Haemaphysalis kitaokai, Haemaphysalis ias, Ixodes ovatus, Ixodes nipponerisis,

On an inner surface of a petri dish having diameter of 9 cm, 1 ml of an acetone solution of a sample compound (concentration: 10 µg/ml) was dropwise applied by a micropipette. On the other hand, as a control section, 1 ml of acetone was dropwise applied in the same manner. The inner surface of the petri dish was dried, and then about 100 larval ticks were put, and the petri dish was covered with a polyethylene sheet and sealed with an elastic band. Thereafter, except for the observation time, the petri dish was left to stand at a constant temperature of 25°C under a relative humidity of 100% and under a constantly dark condition.
