  • Macera is a unique Neuromuscular Disruptor Insecticide (IRAC Group 6: Chloride Channel Activators) belonging to the naturally derived class of Avermectins. 
  • Macera causes paralysis of lepidoptera larvae due to the activation of chloride channel in the nervous System. 
  • Macera is widely used in controlling lepidopteran pests in agricultural products worldwide. 
  • Macera penetrates leaf tissues (translaminar activity) and forms a reservoir within the leaf.

Benefits of Macera
  • Broad Spectrum control of Lepidopteran pests.
  • Excellent protection against feeding damage.
  • Long Duration Control.

How it works?

  • Broad Spectrum control of Lepidopteran pests: Macera protects plants from feeding damage in 2 hours of application
  • Excellent protection against feeding damage: Macera gives maximum mortality within 6-7 days after ingestion.
  • Long Duration Control: Macera rapidly penetrates the cuticle of plants through translaminar movement and provides long residual activity on phytophagous insects

Mode of action 
IRAC Group 6: Chloride Channel Activators

  • Primary route of intoxication on Lepidopteran larvae is through ingestion with contact activity.
  • It has a unique mode of action in disrupting nerve impulses. 
  • Larvae stop feeding shortly after ingestion and gets irreversibly paralysed.
