Lepto is an insecticide of biological origin used to control lepidopteran insects.
Mode of action: It penetrates into leaf tissues (translaminar activity) and forms a reservoir within the leaf. It inhibits muscle contraction, causing a continuous flow of chlorine ions in the GABA and H-Glutamate receptor sites. The affected larvae get paralysed, stops feeding shortly thereafter and are killed within 2-4 days.
