Milbemycins are a complex family of macrocyclic lactones containing a highly characteristic spiroketal group produced by Streptomyces hydroscopicus subsp. aureolarcrimosus. Milbemycin A3 is the dominant member of a group of analogues containing a 25-methyl substituent. Milbemycin A3 is a highly selective and potent nematocide and insecticide. Like the closely related avermectins, milbemycins are thought to act on chloride-gated ion channels.
