Abstrakt: Juvenoids are efficient pesticides with relatively low toxicity to humans. The effects of bacterial, fungal and yeast isolates on aerobic decomposition of ethyl .I.N./I.-{2-[4-(2,2-ethylenedioxy-1-cyclohexylmethyl)phenoxy]ethyl} carbamate during eight weeks were determined. The effect of different concentration of glucose on their degradation activity is also analyzed.
