  • It is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR)
  • It controls all the stages of Whitefly i.e. Eggs, Nymphs and Adults
  • It does not allow the hatching of eggs
  • Daita inhibits metamorphosis of Nymph to Adult
  • Daita causes sterility in adults. Hence even if Adults are seen in Daita treated plot, they cannot reproduce or damage the crops
  • Daita can be sprayed at any stage of crop
  • Daita controls transmission of Leaf Curl Virus (CLCV) by controlling its vector
  • Daita has translaminar activity, so it even kills the pest present at lower side of the leaves
