Fipronil – Low toxicity insecticides

Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole compound and was developed as a useful insecticide in the mid-1990s. It is effective against some insects such as the Colorado potato beetle and certain cotton pests that have become resistant to the existing insecticides. Fipronil is much more toxic to insects than to mammals, another advantage it has as an insecticide.

Phenylpyrazoles have a wide range of insecticides and insecticidal spectrum. They are mainly toxic to the stomach, and also have contact killing and certain inhaling effects

It has high insecticidal activity against aphids, leafhoppers, planthoppers, Lepidoptera larvae, flies, Coleoptera and other important pests, and no harm to crops

Fipronil is also widely used in health insecticides. Mainly used to prevent and kill cockroaches, ants and other harmful organisms

Fipronil is the first phenylpyrazole insecticide widely used in controlling pests, including pyrethroid, organophosphate and carbamate insecticides

Fipronil is a second-generation phenilpirazol insecticide that is used in agriculture and veterinary medicine for protection against fleas, ticks, ants, cockroaches and other pests. The insecticide blocks the chloride channels associated with the gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) receptors in mammals and the chloride channels associated with the GABA and glutamate (Glu) receptors in insects.
