U-Sitara (Thiamethoxam 25% Wg) is a granular soluble insecticide of Neonicotinoid group. It gives protection against insects for a longer period in comparison to other insecticides. U-Sitara is safe to the environment in comparison to other insecticides because of its lesser dose per acre.
MODE OF ACTION: U-Sitara is absorbed quickly by plants and transported to all of its parts, including pollen, where it acts to deter insect feeding. An insect can absorb it in its stomach after feeding, or through direct contact, including through its tracheal system. The compound gets in the way of information transfer between nerve cells by interfering with nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the central nervous system, and eventually paralyzes the muscles of the insects.
