Thiacloprid is a chloronicotinyl insecticide for the control of a wide range of insects. It acts as an agonist of nicotinergic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) and it is therefore effective against insects resistant to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (e. G. Organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides). It is used for control of Homoptera (especially aphids) and Coleoptera in cereals, oilseed rape, potato, sugar beet, pome and stone fruits, fruiting vegetables, cucurbits, brassica vegetables, lettuce and pulses and many others.
Mode of Action: Disruption of the nervous system by acting as an inhibitor at nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.
