Flubendiamide 480SC (39.35% w/w)

Fame contains Flubendiamide which is the first representative of a new chemical insecticide classes - the diamides. In contrast to other insecticide classes targeting the insect nervous system, Flubendiamide acts at receptors in insect muscles causing an immediate cessation of feeding and thus avoids crop damage. It is well suited for the control of a broad range of Lepidoptera pests. The unique mode of action makes the compound well suited as a tool in insect resistance management programmes.


In contrast to most commercially successful insecticides which act on the nervous system, Flubendiamide disrupts proper muscle function in insects and therefore represents a novel, unique mode of action. These characteristic symptoms are induced by Flubendiamide through the activation of ryanodinesensitive intracellular calcium release channels (ryanodine receptors, RyR) as shown by Ca2+ fluorescence measurements in insect neurons as well as in recombinant cells expressing the cloned ryanodine receptor from Drosophila melanogaster.

Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) Classification No. 28


  • Control of broad range of Lepidoptera pests. - Pronounced larvicidal activity, product has to be ingested - No ovicidal activity
  • Fame is fast acting and leads to rapid cessation of feeding immediately after ingestion of the compound
  • The unique mode of action of Fame makes it an excellent tool for resistance management programme and IPM suitable due to its favourable toxicity profile
  • Spreads on both sides of the leaf, thus saving time, energy and money
  • Rain fast due to specific physico-chemical properties
  • It is non-toxic to adult honey bees (LD50 greater than 200 μg a.s./bee for acute oral and contact exposure). Likewise, it does not pose a risk to beneficial insects as parasitoids, predatory mites, or foliage-dwelling insect species
  • Flubendiamide SC 480 is in general well miscible with conventional crop protection products. In particular cases miscibility tests should be performed prior to application. Always refer to the product label for details
