Rilon Insecticide is a highly potent insecticide for use on lepidopterian Insects, which are considered the most damaging insects after sucking pests in edible crops such as vegetables and fruits.
Rilon insecticide (Emamectin Benzoate 5% SG) has a unique mechanism. When applied, it absorbs through leaves (Trans-laminar) and forms a reservoir of molecules in each leaf. When targeting insect feed on the foliage, then Rilon Insecticide (Emamectin benzoate) molecule in leaves is released and inhibits muscle contraction and death of the insect.
INSECTS/ DISEASES - Helicoverpa Spp, Spodoptera Spp, Fall Army Worm, Cut Worm, Pod Borers, Dbm, Stem Borers.
MODE OF ACTION - It is an insecticide with stomach action and should be ingested by the larva to be most effective. Emamectin benzoate is produced by a naturally occurring bacterium known as Streptomyces avermitilis; it exhibits toxicity for pests. Affected larva becomes paralyzed and stop feeding shortly after exposure to rilon Insecticide and subsequently die after 2-4 days.
