Emerald 200SC is a particularly efficient systemic foliar insecticide. It is effective in the control of sucking insects in an extensive variety of agricultural crops. Emerald 200SC can also be used as a termiticide to give effective termite control results in construction and fruit trees.
Mode of Action
Imidacloprid is effective through both contact and stomach poison action. It interferes with the insects’ nicotinergic neuronal pathways by hindering the normal transmission of stimuli in its central nervous system. Consequently stopping the transfer of nerve impulses within the insect’s body causes its’ paralysis and ultimate death.
