Mode of Action

Unlike the organophosphates, nicotinoids and synthetic pyrethroids who work at nervous system, LEPIDO works at mitochondria. Mitochondria are the power houses of cells where food is broken down by bio-chemical processes and ADP is converted to ATP with production of energy. LEPIDO stops the energy production at mitochondria level inside cell and thus the insect dies of starvation.
