Description and Composition: AGITA 10 WG is a water-soluble granule containing 100 g of thiamethoxam and 0.5 g of tricosene per kg. Properties Thiamethoxam, the active ingredient of AGITA, is a broad spectrum insecticide belonging to the group of neonicotinoids. The target sites are the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors within the nervous system of the insect. Tricosene is a fly pheromone and acts as a sexual attractant. Thiamethoxam is devoid of cross-resistance to other insecticides like organophosphates and pyrethroids. AGITA 10 WG contains sugar. It thus attracts the flies and is taken up orally. The presence of tricosene increases significantly the attractiveness of the product.
