ROMECTIN 1.8EC

Effectively controls spider mites

ROMECTIN is highly translaminer and has excellent performance on mites and leaf miners on flowers and vegetables.

ROMECTIN activates arthropod species such as mites by stimulating the pre synaptic release of the inhibitory neurotransmitter, gamma-amino butyric acid (GA-BA) binding to the post synaptic receptors. Due to its unique chemistry and mode of action, cross resistance to other pesticides is highly unlikely.

ROMECTIN is a high potency product with low application rates meaning less chemical load is added to the environment.

MODE OF ACTION

Romectin is primarily an ingestion toxicant with some contact action. It disrupts the nervous physiology of the pests by blocking nerve signal, quickly paralyzing  the target pests thus stopping them from moving, feeding and damaging the crop further. Death follows within 3-4 days. The pest paralysis upon exposure gives immediate control despite the longer time taken to kill.
