Acetamiprid is a broad-spectrum insecticide effective against aphids, Coleoptera, Thysanoptera and Lepido-ptera on vegetables, fruits trees and Tea. It is used in the control of sucking-type insects on leafy vegetables, fruiting vegetables, cole crops, citrus fruits, pome fruits, grapes, cotton, and ornamental plants and flowers. Acetamiprid is a systemic insecticide with translaminar activity and with contact and stomach action. It inhibits nicotinergic acetylcholine receptors in insects and blocks nervous conduction by depolarisation.
Acetamiprid is a mobile, rapidly biodegradable compound in most soils. The primary degradation
pathway is aerobic soil metabolism. Acetamiprid is stable to hydrolysis at environmental temperatures, and photodegrades relatively slowly in water. Acetamiprid is metabolized moderately rapidly in aerobic aquatic systems, but is only slowly metabolized in anaerobic aquatic systems. Acetamiprid is expected to be moderately to highly mobile in most soils and aquatic sediments; however, based on guideline study data, it is not expected to be persistent in the environment.
