“A neonicotinoid having broad spectrum activities and exceptionally good crop compatibility”

 

Product Category: Insecticide
Active ingredient: Imidacloprid
Chemical group: Neonicotinoid
Formulation: Available in WP Formulation (wettable powder) with 25% w/w concentration


Mode of Action: 

  • Contact, stomach action having systemic and translaminar activities
  • Neonicotinoid insecticides act as agonists of the acetylcholine receptor. That is, they mimic the action of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine (ACh). Although cholinesterase is not affected by these insecticides, the nerve is continually stimulated by the neonicotinoid itself, and the end result is similar to that caused by cholinesterase inhibitors – overstimulation of the nervous system leads to poisoning and death. Fortunately, the neonicotinoids are a closer mimic for the insect’s ACh than for human ACh, giving this class of insecticides more specificity for insects and less ability to poison humans
