Crop: Widely used in cotton, vegetable, fruit, rice, wheat, etc
Control Pest: Effectively prevent aphids, leafhoppers and other pests, etc
1. Control of sucking insects, including rice-, leaf- and Planthoppers, Aphids, Thrips and Whitefly.
2. Also effective against soil insects, Termites and some species of biting insects, such as Rice water weevil and Colorado beetle.
3. Has no effect on nematodes and spider mites.
4. Used as a seed dressing, as soil treatment and as foliar treatment in different crops, e.g. rice, cotton, cereals, maize, sugar beet, potatoes, vegetables, citrus fruit, pome fruit and stone fruit.
5. Applied at 25-100g/ha for foliar application, 50–175 g/100 kg seed for most seed treatments and 350–700g/100 kg cotton seed.
6. Also used to control Fleas on dogs and cats.
7. When used on trees, it can take 30 – 60 days to reach the top, (depending on the size and height) and enter the leaves in high enough quantities to be effective. Imidacloprid can be found in the trunk, the branches, the twigs, the leaves, the leaflets, and the seeds. Many trees are wind pollinated. But others such as fruit trees, Linden, Catalpa, and Black Locust trees are bee and wind pollinated and imidacloprid would likely be found in the flowers in small quantities. Higher doses must be used to control boring insects than other types.
