Tracer Insecticide Technical Details

  • Technical Content: Spinosad 44.03% SC
  • Mode of Entry: Contact and Ingestion
  • Mode of Action: Spinosad has a unique mode of action that is different from all other known insect control products. Spinosad causes excitation of the insect nervous system, leading to involuntary muscle contractions, prostration with tremors, and finally paralysis. These effects are consistent with the activation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors by a mechanism that is clearly novel and unique among known insecticidal compounds.
