Promecarb is a member of the carbamate insecticide family of pesticides that all revolve around the carbamic acid moiety and have a mechanism of action involving inhibition of the vital enzyme cholinesterase. This chemical is primarily useful to combat foliage and fruit eating insects, because it is not readily metabolized by plants.
