Cyromazine is a triazine insect growth regulator used as an insecticide and an acaricide. It is a cyclopropyl derivative of melamine. Cyromazine works by affecting the nervous system of the immature larval stages of certain insects.
Cyromazine a triazine derivative is an insect growth regulator that is used in veterinary medicine for the protection of animals against insects. This
application concerns the external use of cyromazine for
the prevention of blowfly strike (Lucilia sericata) on sheep and lamps. Cyromazine is an insecticide that interferes with the first dipteran larval moult and possibly with metamorphosis. Larvae and pupae
undergo typical morphological transformations before they die.
Chitin synthesis inhibitor.
Mode of action
Insect growth regulator with contact action, which interferes with moulting and pupation. When used on plants, action is systemic: applied to the leaves, it exhibits a strong translaminar effect; applied to the soil, it is taken up by the roots and translocated acropetally.
Control of Diptera larvae in chicken manure by feeding to the poultry or treating the breeding sites. Also used to control flies on animals. Used as a foliar spray to control leaf miners (Liriomyza spp.) in vegetables (e.g. celery, melons, tomatoes, lettuce), mushrooms, potatoes and ornamentals, at 75-225 g/ha; also used at 190-450 g/ha in drench or drip irrigation.
