Acaricidal Biominerals and Mode-of-Action Studies against Adult Blacklegged Ticks, Ixodes scapularis


By: G. Cave n, E. Richardson n, K. Chen n, D. Watson n & R. Roe n

author keywords: mechanical insecticides; ticks; Imergard; Celite; repellency
TL;DR: Although the assumed mode of action of Imergard and Celite is dehydration, the minerals are not hygroscopic, there was no evidence of cuticle damage, and death occurred in as little as 2 h, suggesting minimal abrasive action of the cuticle. (via Semantic Scholar)
