- Neonicotinoid insecticide;
- Prolonged protection against most malicious insects;
- Efficient use in greenhouses;
- High efficiency in any weather conditions;
- No phytotoxic effect.
Mechanism of action
The preparation has an acute contact intestinal and systemic effect. Imidacloprid blocks postjunctional nicotine receptors of the insect"s nervous system. This results in inhibition of signal transfer through the central nervous system of pests, these lose their locomotor activity, at first, then stop feeding and die within a day.
Protective period - min. 14 days depending on the kind of insect pest and weather conditions.
Speed of action
High speed of toxic effect.
Spectrum of action
White fly, intrastalk pests, Eurygaster integriceps, potato beetle, Oulema, greenflies, acridoid grasshoppers, etc.
Compatible with most insecticides and fungicides. Check for chemical and physical compatibility with a specific preparation in recommended doses before large-scale use.
Potential for resistance
To prevent resistance, alternate the preparation with insecticides from other chemical groups and with different mechanism of action.

Application technique. Mix preparation method
Prepare the mix immediately before use and apply during the same day. Fill the sprayer tank with water to 1/2, add the full preparation dose, and then top up with remaining water. The stir the contents thoroughly.
Prepare the mix and fill the sprayer on dedicated sites that are disinfected afterwards.
Use ground-based boom sprayers OPSh-15-01, OP-2000-2-01, or similar. For aerial treatment – An-2 plane or Mi-2 helicopter.
Treat in zero wind weather in the morning or evening while ensuring uniform wetting of leaves. An interval of at least 3 or 4 hours shall be between treatment and potential precipitation.
The preparation does not lose its efficiency at high ambient temperatures, and is adequately resistant to rain and sun light.
No phytotoxic effect is recorded when used in recommended doses.
Recommendations on protection of valuable flora and fauna objects
The preparation is of high hazard to bees – Hazard Class 1. Basic provisions of the ‘Guidelines for preventing bee poisoning with pesticides’ and following environmental regulations:
treat plants early in the morning and late in the evening.
For ground application:
treat plants at wind speed up to 1 or 2 m/sec;
protection boundary zone for bees – min. 4-5 km;
bee’s flight time limitation – 96-120 hours.
For aerial application:
treat plants at wind speed up to 0 or 1 m/sec;
protection boundary zone for bees – min. 5-6 km;
bee’s flight time limitation – 9-10 days.
Warn apiary owners 4 or 5 days before treatment.
Do not apply the preparation within the sanitary zone of fishery water bodies 500 m away from the flood line in case of maximum floodwater level, but not closer than 2 km to the existing banks.
Transport and storage conditions
Comply with all conventional rules of toxic substance transport. Keep the preparation in a room dedicated for pesticide storage. Storage temperature range - minus 10⁰C to plus 30⁰C.
