What Is Dinotefuran?

Dinotefuran (Chemical name: N-methyl-N′-nitro-N″-[(tetrahydro-3-furanyl)methyl)]guanidine) is a neonicotinoid insecticide. It is often formulated in combination with pyriproxyfen as a spot-on flea control product, and with pyriproxyfen and permethrin as a spot-on flea and tick control product.

Dinotefuran was first registered in 2004 to the EPA to be used against 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.

Dinotefuron comes in a variety of forms--from liquid insecticide concentrates to dusts, foams and even gel baits.

How Dinotefuran Works

As noted above, dinotefuran is a neonicotinoid which means that it is a chemical designed to mimic the effects of nicotine, found commonly in tobacco. Dinotefuran mode of action is achieved by disrupting inhibiting stimuli transmission within the nervous system of the targeted insect when that insect either ingests or absorbs the poison into its body.

In other words, dinotefuran blocks a certain type of neuronal pathways which are much more prevalent in insects than mammals. That is why the chemical is much more toxic to insects than humans or animals. As a result of this blockage, the insect begins to accumulation of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter, resulting in the insect's paralysis, and eventually their death.
