Other Name: tetrahydro-5,5-dimethyl-2(1H)-pyrimidinone [3-[4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-1-[2-[4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]ethenyl]-2-propenylidene]hydrazone
CAS Number: [ 67485-29-4 ]
Molecular Formula: C25H24F6N4
Hydramethylnon is one among a group of pesticides known as trifluoromethyl aminohydrazones or metabolic inhibitors. While the active ingredient of insecticides attack the insect's central nervous system to cause nerve excitation, Hydramethylnon attack the insect's metabolic systems, resulting in decreased energy, lethargy, and the inability to perform basic life-sustaining functions such as feeding and grooming. Symptoms are delayed, however, with death typically occurs within 24 to 72 hours. This unique mode of action allows for affected carrier insects to return to their colony or harborage and spread the poison to others.
Hydramethylnon is commerically used for the control of:
Roach killer often contains commonly used insecticides like Imidacloprid, Chlopyrifos, Fipronil, while Hydramethylnon is classified as a General Use Pesticide (GUP), it is less hazardous to the environment and human health as long as you can follow the directions on the label is okay.
Site II electron transport inhibitor. Inhibits cellular respiration.
Mode of action
Non-systemic insecticide with stomach action.
Selective control of agricultural and household Formicidae (especially Camponotus, Iridomyrmex, Monomorium, Solenopsis and Pogonomyrmex spp. and Pheidole megacephala), Blattellidae (especially Blatta, Blattella, Periplaneta and Supella spp.), Kalotermitidae (especially Incisitermes) and Rhinotermitidae (especially Reticulitermes, Coptotermes, Heterotermes) using baits. Due to slow action, can be carried into nest by worker ants and kill the queen. Used at c. 16 g/ha per application.
No phytotoxicity observed.
