Thiacloprid is a member of the chemical class of neonicotinoid insecticides. It is an effective tool for the control of a broad spectrum of pests which are otherwise difficult to control. Thiacloprid, due to its rain-fastness property, is stable even under conditions of heavy rains and sunlight providing longer persistence.
MODE OF ACTION
Thiacloprid is antagonist to the nicotinic acetyl choline receptor in the central nervous system. It disturbs the proper signal transmission system leading to excitation of nerve cell. Consequently a disorder of the nervous system occurs leading finally to the death of the treated insect.
