CASMECTIN is a unique mixture of avermectins containing > 80% avermectin B1a and < 20% avermectin B1b. These two components have very similar biological and toxicological properties. The avermectins are insecticidal or anthelmintic compounds derived from the soil bacterium Streptomyces avermitilis.
CASMECTIN is a natural fermentation product of this bacterium and is used to control a range of insects including mites on all fruit, vegetable and ornamental crops. It can be used by homeowners as well as for the control of fire ants in and around their surroundings.
CASMECTIN is of low toxicity to mammals and acts on insects by interfering with its neural and neuromuscular transmission.
CASMECTIN is unique in its formulation, giving rapid control with its low rate of 1 teaspoon to 4 gallons of water.
CASMECTIN is TRANSLAMINAR which makes it very effective against its target insects.
CASMECTIN is more cost effective and has a low impact on the environment.
CASMECTIN will control mites, aphids, thrips, leaf miners, etc. EFFECTIVELY.
CASMECTIN can be mixed with CASNEEM or CASNIM to improve insect management and control.
