What is Imidacloprid?

Imidacloprid is a systemic, chloro-nicotinyl insecticide

How does Imidacloprid work?

Imidacloprid is a material that is designed to mimic the properties of nicotine, a powerful neurotoxin found naturally in tobacco.  The chemical works by interfering with the transmission of stimuli in the insect nervous system. Specifically, it causes a blockage in a type of neuronal pathway (nicotinergic) that is more abundant in insects than in warm-blooded animals (making the chemical selectively more toxic to insects than warm-blooded animals). This blockage leads to the accumulation of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter, resulting in the insect's paralysis, and eventually death. It is effective on contact and via stomach action

Which insects does Imidacloprid control?

Commonly used for bedbug, fly, roach and termite control. It has soil, seed and foliar uses for the control of sucking insects including flies,rice hoppers, aphids, thrips, whiteflies, turf insects, soil insects and some beetles. It is most commonly used on rice, cereal, maize, potatoes, vegetables, sugar beets, fruit, cotton, hops and turf, and is especially systemic when used as a seed or soil treatment.
