Beta-Cyfluthrin is an insecticide of synthetic pyrethroid group. Beta-Cyfluthrin is acting by contact and ingestion. It acts on the insects’ nervous system as sodium channel blocker. In the pest, rapid excitation and impairment of coordination are the first visible symptoms of intoxication, followed by knockdown and death. Imidacloprid 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.
