What is thiamethoxam?

Thiamethoxam is a second-generation nicotine-based insecticide with high efficiency and low toxicity.
The chemical formula is C8H10ClN5O3S.
It has gastrotoxic, contact and systemic activity against pests.
Used for foliar spraying and soil irrigation and root treatment. It is quickly absorbed into the body after application and transmitted to all parts of the plant.
Thiamethoxam target pests Including aphids, whitefly, thrips, ricehoppers, rice bugs, mealybugs, white grubs, potato beetles, flea beetles, wireworms, ground beetles, leaf miners among others.

thiamethoxam lambda-cyhalothrinHow It Works?

It produces effects by interfering with nerve conduction in the insect’s body. Mimics acetylcholine, stimulating receptor proteins. But this acetylcholine is not degraded by acetylcholinesterase. Eventually, the pests quickly stop feeding and their activities are inhibited. The pest remains in a state of high excitement until it dies.

Under normal circumstances, thiamethoxam is effective in killing sucking mouthpart pests and leaf-mining pests in agriculture, and it has a long-lasting effect. Basically, obvious effects can be seen after 2-3 days of use, and The control period can reach about 1 month.

Best way to use

(1) Soil treatment: before sowing wheat, garlic, potatoes and other crops. Use 3 to 4 kilograms of 2% thiamethoxam granules, mix with 15 to 20 kilograms of decomposed organic fertilizer, and apply evenly by broadcast, furrow or hole. The pesticide has good stability in the soil. It can be absorbed by crop roots for a long time and transmitted to the above-ground parts of crops. Not only can it kill grubs, wireworms, cutworms and other underground pests. It can also effectively control aphids, whiteflies, planthoppers, thrips, leafhoppers and other ground pests. The duration of effect is as long as 80 to 90 days, which greatly reduces the number of sprays.
(2) Chemical seed dressing: before sowing wheat, corn, cotton, peanuts, soybeans, garlic, potatoes and other crops. Use 30% thiamethoxam seed treatment suspension agent, and carry out seed dressing according to the ratio of 1:400. Wrap the seed coating agent evenly on the surface of the seeds, dry it and sow it. The agent is evenly dispersed around the rhizosphere of the seeds and seedlings to protect the seeds and seedlings. It is not harmed by grubs, cutworms, wireworms, and can also effectively prevent the harm of aphids, planthoppers, whiteflies, thrips and other ground pests. The duration of effect can reach 50 to 60 days.
