Technical Specifications

  • Active Ingredient

    120 g/L Jemvelva® active (Spinetoram)

  • Application Method
    Ground and aerial applications
  • Mode of Action

    Jemvelva® active is active on all larval life stages and enters the insect primarily through the digestive system (ingestion activity) and secondarily through the insect exoskeleton (contact activity). In insects, the mode of action is associated with excitation of the nervous system which causes paralysis followed by death. The onset of symptoms is noticeable within hours. Jemvelva® active also has effective ovi-larvicidal activity which means that insects emerging from treated eggs are controlled.
