Abamet 100ML is a formulation of the active ingredient abamectin, which is a member of the avermectin family of insecticides. Avermectins are naturally occurring compounds that are produced by a soil microorganism called Streptomyces avermitilis.
Abamet 100ML is a broad-spectrum insecticide and acaricide, meaning that it is effective against a wide range of pests, including mites, leaf miners, diamondback moths, beetles, and fire ants. It can be used to control pests on a variety of crops, including citrus, apples, pears, tomatoes, potatoes, and ornamentals.
Abamet 100ML works by stimulating the release of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter. GABA causes paralysis and death in pests. Abamet 100ML can be applied to crops as a foliar spray or as a soil drench. It is also used to treat livestock for parasites.
