The Introduction of Dinotefuran

- Feb 22, 2018 -

1,Product Introduction:

Dinotefuran is an insecticide of the neonicotinoid class developed by Mitsui Chemicals for control of insect pests such as aphids, whiteflies, thrips, leafhoppers, leafminers, sawflies, mole cricket, white grubs, lacebugs, billbugs, beetles, mealybugs, and cockroaches on leafy vegetables, in residential and commercial buildings, and for professional turf management. Its mechanism of action involves disruption of the insect's nervous system by inhibiting nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. In order to avoid harming beneficial insects such as bees, it should not be applied during bloom.

In July 2013, the state of Oregon temporarily restricted the use of dinotefuran pending the results of an investigation into a large bee kill.

Dinotefuran is also used in veterinary medicine as a flea and tick preventative for dogs and as a flea preventative for cats. It is used in combination with pyriproxifen or permethrin.

2,Mode of Action

Dinotefuran acts through contact and ingestion and results in the cessation of feeding within several hours of contact and death shortly after. Dinotefuran does not inhibit cholinesterase or interfere with sodium channels. Therefore, its mode of action is different from those of organophosphate, carbamate, and pyrethroid compounds. It appears that Dinotefuran acts as an agonist of insect nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, but it is postulated that Dinotefuran affects the nicotinic acetylcholine binding in a mode that differs from other neonicotinoid insecticides. It is reported that Dinotefuran was highly active on a certain silverleaf whitefly strain which developed resistance against imidacloprid.


Rice pests

Efficient: brown planthopper, white-backed planthopper, brown planthopper, leafhopper, rice stinkbug rafters spider, star stinkbug, rice green stinkbug, Red Beard bugs, rice mixed with worm negative, rice water cylinder borer.

Effective: stem borer, rice grasshopper classes.

Vegetables, fruit pests

Efficient: whiteflies, scale insect, yanonensis Diaspididae, Zhu green stink bug, peach fruit moth, orange leafminer, tea gracilariid, yellow striped flea beetle, bean maggot, tea leafhopper.

Effective: aphids, angular December Kuwana, diamondback moth, two black bars leaf beetle, yellow tea thrips, tobacco thrips, thrips, citrus thrips, soybean pod gall midge, tomato leaf miner.

4,Controlling spectrum:

It is mainly used to control aphid, leafhopper, plant hopper, thrip, whitefly on wheat, rice, cotton, vegetables, fruit trees, tobacco etc. It also has good effect on pests from Coleoptera, Diptera, Lepidoptera and public health pests such as cockroach, termite and housefly.

5,Advantages of Dinotefuran

1),Dinotefuran can be applied to foliage or to the soil and is active by contact and ingestion.

2)It also has root-systemic activity.

3)The activity can persist for several weeks after application.

4)Dinotefuran has demonstrated no cross-resistance to insects.It against several strains of mosquito,

5)It was less toxic than standards.

Dinotefuran provides superior control of stinkbugs, fruit moths, flea beetles and leaf miners compared with imidacloprid.
