Thiamethoxam is a broad-spectrum insecticide that effectively controls insects. Thiamethoxam is synthetic in origin, being a second generation neonicotinoid compound belonging to the chemical subclass the thianicotinyls. Thiamethoxam can be applied as a foliar application, a soil treatment and a seed treatment. Thiamethoxam is rapidly taken up by the plant, with excellent translaminar movement, and is transported acropetally in the xylem. Thiamethoxam effectively controls sucking and chewing insects, including aphids, whitefly, thrips, ricehoppers, ricebugs, mealybugs, white grubs, potato beetles, flea beetles, wireworms, ground beetles, leaf miners and some lepidopterous species. The effect of thiamethoxam on the target organisms is due to exposure to the chemical on contact, within the stomach contents and also systemically. Thiamethoxam is approved in the United Kingdom for use on potatoes, apples, pears and ornamental house plants. As a seed treatment, in combination with fludioxonil and metalaxyl-M, thiamethoxam not only controls insects, but also resulting in increased yield. Seed treatment is approved for fodder rape, mustard, sugar beet and oilseed rape. Thiamethoxam is sold as 25% WG (water dispersable granules), 35% SC (soluble concentrate) and 70% WS(water dispersal powder as slurry for seed treatments).
