MODE OF ACTION: Imidacloprid has contact and stomach poison action and works by interfering with the transmission of stimuli in the insect nervous system by causing a blockage of the nicotinergic neuronal pathway thus preventing acetylcholine from transmitting impulses between nerves, resulting in the insect’s paralysis and eventual death.
