Insecticide METHOXYFENOZIDE 96%TC Cas 161050-58-4

Methoxyfenozide belongs to the biorational insect growth regulator class of insecticides. After pests consume the pesticide, they undergo a molting reaction and begin to molt. However, they are unable to complete the molting process, which leads to dehydration and starvation, ultimately resulting in death. The mechanism of action of this pesticide is opposite to that of pesticides that inhibit insect molting, and it can be used for prevention and control throughout the entire larval stage of the pest.

Methoxyfenozide is a second-generation dihydrazide insect growth regulator. Methoxyfenozide is a new type of specific benzohydrazide insecticide with low toxicity. It has a highly selective insecticidal activity against Lepidoptera pests. It mainly has a contact effect and has a certain systemic effect. The agent is a biomimetic molting hormone insect growth regulator. After the pests eat the agent, they will produce a molt reaction and begin to molt, and the larvae will die due to dehydration and starvation due to incomplete molt. The action mechanism of the agent is opposite to that of the agent for inhibiting molt of pests, and it can be used to prevent and control pests in the whole larval stage.

Features of Methoxyfenozide

Methoxyfenozide is a dihydrazide insecticide. It has highly selective insecticidal activity against Lepidoptera pests, mainly with contact action and certain systemic action. It has highly selective insecticidal activity against Lepidoptera pests, has no osmotic effect and phloem systemic activity, and is mainly effective through gastric toxicity, but also has certain contact and ovicidal activities.

Applications of Methoxyfenozide

Diarylhydrazine insect growth regulators and ecdysone insecticides interfere with the normal growth and development of insects and inhibit feeding. It is mainly used in vegetables and farmland to control Lepidoptera pests on vegetables (melons, solanaceous fruits), apples, corn, cotton, grapes, kiwi, walnuts, flowers, beets, tea and field crops (rice, sorghum, soybeans). Especially effective on larvae and eggs. It is safe to beneficial insects and beneficial mites, and has activities such as contact killing and root systemic absorption. Friendly to the environment. The recommended dosage is 20-30g active ingredient/hm2

How to use methoxyfenozide

1. To control pests such as cruciferous vegetable beet armyworm, Spodoptera litura, Pieris rapae, etc., it is advisable to use the drug early from the peak period of egg hatching to the peak period of the 2nd instar larvae. In the young larvae stage (1-2 instar), use 15-20ml of 24% methoxyfenozide suspending agent per acre mixed with 30kg of water, and spray evenly.

2. To prevent and control the silk borer, it is advisable to spray with 1500 times of 24% methoxyfenozide suspending agent at the peak stage of the 2nd instar larvae (before the leaves are not rolled).

3. To prevent and control cotton bollworm, use 50-80 ml of 24% methoxyfenozide suspending agent per mu, mix with 30 kg of water and spray, and spray again after 10-14 days.

4. To control small leaf tortrix on apple trees, you should choose to apply pesticides at the egg hatching stage and young larvae stage when new shoots are sprouting. Spray with 24% methoxyfenozide suspending agent 3000-5000 times liquid, and apply 1-2 times at intervals of 7 days.

5. To control codling moth, apple borer, etc., apply pesticides before adults start to lay eggs or before pests eat fruit, use 12-16 ml of 24% methoxyfenozide suspending agent per mu, and spray again after 10 days.

6. For the control of rice stem borer and rice leaf roller, the pesticides are generally applied during the hatching period to the peak period of the ant borer, and 20.8-27.8 ml of 24% methoxyfenozide suspending agent is used per mu, mixed with 30 kg of water and sprayed.
