Mode of Action

Emamectin benzoate is a non-systemic microorganism-derived insecticide Isolated from a naturally occuring soil bacterium Streptomyces avermitilis and contains two analogues, emamectin B1a and B1b. It acts by causing insect paralysis through suppressing muscle contraction and stops feeding. It acts as a chloride channel activator. It exhibits translaminar effect.
Indoxacarb is an Oxadiazine with Contact and stomach action. It acts as Voltage-dependent sodium channel blocker.
