Acetamiprid is a systemic insecticide with ovicidal and larvicidal effects on Hemiptera and Lepidoptera, and it also controls adult Thysanoptera. It primarily acts through ingestion, with limited contact efficacy and minimal cuticular penetration. The insecticide offers translaminar activity that enhances control of pests like aphids and whiteflies on leaf undersides and maintains residual efficacy for up to four weeks. Acetamiprid targets the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in insect nerve cells, displaying selectivity for insects over vertebrates due to its higher affinity for insect receptors. It is not broken down by acetylcholinesterase, resulting in continuous nerve signal transmission, causing symptoms of poisoning within 30 minutes and leading to paralysis and death in insects.

Application/Usage: Hexythiazox targets and controls eggs and larvae of various phytophagous mites, acting as a mite growth regulator. This thiazolidine-based acaricide offers long-lasting effects against a wide range of mite species and can be applied at any stage of plant growth. Mode of action is contact and stomach-based, thereby offering non-systemic control. Time of application should be at the beginning of hatching of winter eggs. The 5%EC should be mixed with water and stir the solution as required. When the population density of insect pests is high, the solution should be mixed with quick-acting agents.
