Insecticide imidacloprid is a kind of neonicotinoids and it is broad-spectrum and highly efficient. The chemical name for this product is N-[1-[(6-Chloro-3-pyridyl)methyl]-4,5-dihydroimidazol-2-yl]nitramide. With low-residue, pests will not develop resistance and humans and animal won't be injured. With contact, stomach and systemic poisoning, this product has different effects on different pests and it is usually used for control of sucking mouthparts. The mechanism is to block normal conduction of central nervous system after it is absorbed, and then the pests develop paralysis and die.
