Abamectin acts by binding selectively and with high affinity to glutamate-gated chloride channels in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells.
This leads to hyperpolarisation of these cells, resulting in flaccid paralysis and death of the parasite.
Morantel is a depolarising neuromuscular blocking agent producing paralysis by causing muscle contraction.
