Abamectin is a natural substance that is toxic to insects, but has a low toxic- ity to higher organisms. Since it can penetrate several layers of plant cells, it has been useful for control of leaf-miners, and is highly effective against spider mites. Imidacloprid is a unique chloronicotinyl compound, which, when drenched into the root zone of plants, is taken up systemi- cally. It tends to concentrate in new growth, the feeding site of many insect pests. Since it is taken up very slowly into the plant, ...

Exposure to abamectin results in fast and permanent inactivation of the nematode's movement and feeding ability. This is due to binding to glutamate- and gamma-aminobutyric acid-gated chloride channels in nematode nerve cells that keeps the channels open. The unregulated influx of chloride ions causes irreversible paralysis. After years of use as an anthelmintic and in foliar sprays against insects and mites, recently abamectin has been developed in various crops as a seed ...
