When exposed to adults, the composition produces a sterilant effect; when exposed to eggs, an ovicidal effect occurs. The destruction of caterpillars is due to inhibition of chitin synthesis and prevention of cuticle formation. Under the influence of the substance, the parasite is not able to proceed to the next stage.
