Twigamectin acts by inhibiting the transmission of nerve impulse leading to paralysis of susceptible insects/mites. The pests stop feeding immediately hence crop damage is arrested immediately. It takes 3-4days for the pest to die. Twigamectin has contact and stomach action. It has translaminar activity hence offers a reservoir of active ingredient within the leaf.
