Thiacloprid
Aug 14, 2018

Thiacloprid is an insecticide of the neonicotinoid class. Its mechanism of action is similar to other neonicotinoids and involves disruption of the insect's nervous system by stimulating nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Thiacloprid was developed by Bayer CropScience for use on agricultural crops to control of a variety of sucking and chewing insects, primarily aphids and whiteflies.

Thiacloprid is a pesticide used to kill insects on a variety of crops including oilseed rape, potatoes and fruit. It is also used in garden bug killing products found in garden centres and supermarkets.
