Abamet 18 EC is a leading acaricide/insecticide and acts mainly by ingestions but also has contact and translaminar activity. Therefore, the active ingredient passes into the leaf tissue forming a toxic reservoir of Abamectin. Consequently, pests continue to get killed as a result of feeding on the mesophyl tissue.

Abamet insecticide acts by stimulating the release of-aminobutyric acid, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, therefore causing paralysis as a result. So, it is very useful for the control of certain mites on cotton, citrus, apples, capsicums, hops, pears, tomatoes, ornamentals and strawberries and native budworm on cotton.
