How Capsitox Insecticide Works
Capsitox contains the active ingredient thiamethoxam, which is a neonicotinoid insecticide. Neonicotinoids work by binding to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the insect’s nervous system. This binding interferes with the insect’s ability to communicate with its muscles and eventually leads to paralysis and death.
