APPLICATIONS Biochemistry Inhibits chitin synthesis. Mode of action Acts mostly by ingestion; larvae are unable to moult, and also cease feeding. Uses Insect growth regulator for control of Lepidoptera and Coleoptera larvae on cotton, maize and vegetables; and citrus whitefly and rust mites on citrus fruit, at 10-50 g/ha. Also for the prevention and control of flea infestations on pets. Formulation types EC. Compatibility Not compatible with pesticides with alkaline reaction (lime sulfur, copper).
