Lamba-cypermethrin acts on the nervous system of insects, and disturbs the function of neurons by interaction with the sodium channel. Mode of action Non-systemic insecticide with contact and stomach action, and repellent properties. Gives rapid knockdown and long residual activity. Used to control a wide spectrum of insect pests, e.g. aphids, Colorado beetles, thrips, lepidopteran larvae, coleopteran larvae and adults, etc., in cereals, hops, ornamentals, potatoes, vegetables, cotton, and other crops. Provides good control of insect-borne plant viruses. Also used for control of insect pests in public health.
