Imtrade Ecdypro is a Group 18 bisacylhydrazine insecticide that acts as an insect growth regulator (IGR) in target lepidopteran pests. The active ingredient, Tebufenozide is an Ecdysteroid agonist that mimics an insect growth hormone. Once ingested, ecdysone receptors are activated by the increased concentration of the IGR insecticide, which induces a molting cycle. Unlike the natural hormones that normally trigger molting, the stability of Tebufenozide in vivo is far greater than the hormone that it is mimicking. As such, genes responsible for the early phases of the molting process are expressed by the increased concentration of the IGR,
but the late phase genes that are triggered by the decline in hormonal concentration are not expressed due to the unnaturally prolonged presence of Tebufenozide. In susceptible Lepidoptera, lethality is due to a variety of altered mechanisms resulting in an inability to complete a molt, starvation and desiccation due to hemorrhage.
