2018-10-18 11:23:21
Fipronil products is a broad-spectrum insecticide that belongs to the phenylpyrazole chemical family. it disrupts the insect central nervous system by blocking GABA-gated chloride channels and glutamate-gated chloride (GluCl) channels. This causes hyperexcitation of contaminated insects' nerves and muscles. It's specificity towards insects is believed to be due to its greater affinity to the GABA receptor in insects relative to mammals and its effect on GluCl channels, which do not exist in mammals.
Because of its effectiveness on a large number of pests, Fipronil products is used as the active ingredient in flea control products for pets and home roach traps as well as field pest control for corn, golf courses, and commercial turf. Its widespread use makes its specific effects the subject of considerable attention. This includes ongoing observations on possible off-target harm to humans or ecosystems as well as the monitoring of resistance development.

Use:
Under the trade name Regent, Fipronil products is used against major lepidopteran (moth, butterfly, etc.) and orthopteran (grasshopper, locust, etc.) pests on a wide range of field and horticultural crops and against coleopteran (beetle) larvae in soils. In 1999, 400,000 hectares were treated with Regent. It became the leading imported product in the area of rice insecticides, the second-biggest crop protection market after cotton in China.
Under the trade names Goliath and Nexa, it is employed for cockroach and ant control, including in the US. It is also used against pests of field corn, golf courses, and commercial lawn care under the trade name Chipco Choice.
It has been used under the trade name Adonis for locust control in Madagascar and Kazakhstan.
Marketed under the names Termidor, Ultrathor, and Taurus in Africa and Australia, fipronil effectively controls termite pests, and was shown to be effective in field trials in these countries.
Termidor has been approved for use against the Rasberry crazy ant in the Houston, Texas, area, under a special "crisis exemption" from the Texas Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency. The chemical is only approved for use in Texas counties experiencing "confirmed infestations" of the newly discovered ant species. Use of Termidor is restricted to certified pest control operators in the following states: Alaska, Connecticut, Nebraska, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Indiana, New York, and Washington.
In Australia, it is marketed under numerous trade names, including Combat Ant-Rid, Radiate and Termidor, and as generic fipronil
In the UK, provisional approval for five years has been granted for fipronil use as a public hygiene insecticide.
Fipronil is the main active ingredient of Frontline TopSpot, Fiproguard, Flevox, and PetArmor (used along with S-methoprene in the 'Plus' versions of these products); these treatments are used in fighting tick and flea infestations in dogs and cats.
In New Zealand, fipronil was used in trials to control wasps (Vespula spp.), which are a threat to indigenous biodiversity. It is now being used by the Department of Conservation to attempt local eradication of wasps.

Method of application:
Fipronil has a wide spectrum of insecticides, which has the effects of palming, stomach toxicity and moderate internal absorption. It can control both underground and overground pests. It can be used for stem and leaf treatment, soil treatment and seed treatment. 25~50g of active ingredients/ha of leaves can effectively prevent and control potato leaf beetle, parsley moth, strep moth, Mexican boll weevil beetle and flower thistle horse.The use of 50~100g active ingredients/ha in rice fields can effectively control borer, brown planthopper and other pests. 6~15g of active ingredients/ha of foliage spray can prevent and control locusts in grassland and desert. 100~150g of active ingredients/ha applied to soil can effectively prevent and control maize root leaf beetles, golden needle beetles and ground tigers.The effective composition of 250~650g /100 kg seed was used to treat corn seed, which can effectively prevent and control corn golden bug and tiger. The main targets of this product include aphids, leaf hoppers, lepidoptera larva, flies and coleoptera.
