Mode of Action
GROUP | 4A | 10A | 6 | INSECTICIDE
Clothianidin is a neonicotinoid insecticide. The active ingredient works by blocking nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, preventing acetylcholine from transmitting impulses between nerves, resulting in the target insect’s paralysis and eventual death. Upon ingestion, the target insect stops feeding quickly, limiting further plant attack. Clothianidin is a systemic insecticide that is also known to possess some translaminar movement. Clothianidin is readily taken up by the foliage and roots and further distributed acropetally (upwards in the plant). Target insects can be controlled by contact action in the soil or via stomach action by ingestion of the active ingredient when feeding on the treated plant material.
Abamectin blocks the transmission of electrical activity in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells mostly by enhancing the effects of glutamate (an important inhibitory neurotransmitter in insects) at the glutamate-gated chloride channel. By activating glutamate-gated chloride channels, the insect becomes paralysed, stops feeding and dies. Abamectin has contact toxicity, but its stomach toxicity is much stronger. After 2-3 days of spraying abamectin, its insecticidal efficacy will be best, and the longevity of residues will last about 7-15 days. Abamectin moves via translaminar activity (one side of the leaf to the other) to kill insects that hide in hard to reach plant parts. In the soil environment, abamectin is active for a short period.
Clofentezine is an insecticide with contact action and extended residual activity. It acts primarily by interfering with cell growth and differentiation during the final stages of embryonic (ovicide), and early larval development. IRAC (Insecticide Resistance Action Committee) class Clofentezine as an insect growth regulator. Clofentezine mimics growth hormones by directly affecting cuticle formation or lipid biosynthesis, halting their ability to develop any further and essentially preventing their lifecycle completion (IRAC, 2016). Clofentezine is moderately persistent in the soil environment.
