What pests does abamectin 1.8 ec work against?

Abamectin 1.8 ec is refined by microbial fermentation and refined antibiotic insecticides and acaricides, which can effectively repel phytophagous mites, Lepidoptera, Homoptera, and other pests. For example Plutella xylostella, cabbage caterpillars, leaf miners, red spiders, mites, rice left folder, cockroaches, ostrinia nubilalis, ants, white spiders, spider rust, psyllids, aphids, scale insects, etc.
It is a new broad-spectrum, high-efficiency, low-toxic, pollution-free biological insecticide and acaricide. For best results, use abamectin when the leaves are young for better absorption into the leaf tissue. This will extend the remaining control period. As the leaves age and harden, they lose absorption of abamectin, and residual control is greatly reduced.

Applicable crops:

Fruit trees, Grain crops, Vegetables, flowerbeds. For example, orange tree, apple tree, pear tree, peach tree, vineyard, watermelon (field), apricot tree, plum tree, lemon tree, citrus tree, tomato (greenhouse), cucumber (greenhouse), pumpkin (greenhouse), eggplant (greenhouse) ), tomato (field), pepper (field), pepper (greenhouse), ornamental (greenhouse), eggplant, a quince tree, walnut tree, melon, watermelon (greenhouse), lettuce, parsley, dill, etc.

How Does Abamectin Work?

Mode of action: Abamectin attacks the nervous system of insects and mites, causing paralysis within a few hours. The paralysis cannot be reversed. Abamectin is active (stomach toxin) after consumption, although there is some contact activity. The maximum death rate occurs within 3-4 days.

Is abamectin safe for the environment?

Despite its high toxicity levels, avermectin has been extensively tested and declared safe for the environment.
Sources indicate that it is relatively safe for birds.
Under controlled conditions, the substance is harmless.
However, the product is dangerous to bees, especially after application to leaves.
The plant becomes safe after complete absorption of the ingredient.
It also degrades rapidly due to sunlight. Like birds, avermectin affects fish on direct contact, but it becomes harmless after a few hours.
The substance is virtually insoluble in water because it degrades rapidly once it comes into contact with soil.
This prevents it from contaminating groundwater.
It has a short life span in aquatic environments and although most species are unaffected, Daphnia Magna species are highly sensitive to avermectin at LC50 values.
Ideally, the product will not have a serious impact on the environment due to increased degradation in water, soil, and plant surfaces. However, safety measures must be observed by wearing protective equipment, and gas masks, and avoid prolonged skin contact.

How to use abamectin 1.8 safely?

The product safety interval is 7 days, and the crops can be used at most once per season.
This product cannot be mixed with alkaline substances. Avoid affecting the surrounding mountains when spraying, and it is forbidden to bloom near flowering plants.
Keep away from the planting area of aquatic pesticides. It is forbidden to clean the application equipment in pools and other water bodies to avoid water pollution.
Waste should be handled properly, not for other purposes, and do not throw away at will.
Wear protective clothing, gloves, etc. when using this product, avoid inhaling liquids, and do not eat or drink during spraying. Wash hands in time after application.
Recommendations and other mechanisms for the use of pesticides in different crop rotations.
