"Zemlin" is an insecticide that, according to the instructions for use, destroys soil-dwelling insects. The drug has an intestinal and contact effect, that is, it gets to pests through food and direct contact. In plants or soil, it persists for 20 days. This time is enough to destroy insects that can destroy young seedlings. It is applied once, in spring, at the time of planting crops.
Composition and principle of action
"Zemlin" is an organophosphate insecticide familiar to many summer residents. It is a nerve poison that is used to control soil-borne pests. The drug is available in the form of granules. "Zemlin" is packaged in plastic bags weighing 30 grams. The granules are applied to the soil dry, mixed with sand, sawdust or dissolved in water.
The active substance of the drug is diazinon (50 grams per 1 kilogram). It acts on insects by entering their body with food and through the skin. It is a chemical that has insecticidal properties. Diazinon acts on cholinesterase, that is, an enzyme that transmits nerve impulses. The poisonous substance has a neuroparalytic effect and leads to the death of pests. The duration of its activity is 2-3 weeks. After 20 days, diazinon is completely detoxified. Its toxic residues do not accumulate in plants.
"Zemlin" is introduced into the soil or scattered on the surface of the soil. The drug destroys soil pests. The active substance "Zemlin", getting into the soil, is absorbed by the root system and enters the seedlings of plants. In cultures, it lasts no more than 20 days. This time is enough to protect the plants, to give them the opportunity to grow, while simultaneously destroying the existing poisons of pests.
"Zemlin" is used against gnawing and sucking pests. The drug destroys insects such as wireworms, weevils, fleas. With its help, you can get rid of aphids, scoops, ground beetles, cabbage and onion flies, bear flies, ants. The drug protects even indoor plants from soil flies and mosquitoes.
