Mode of Action
Chlorpyriphos 20% E.C is an organophosphate insecticide that inhibits the activity of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which is responsible for breaking down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the nervous system of insects. By inhibiting this enzyme, Chlorpyriphos causes an accumulation of acetylcholine, leading to overstimulation of the nervous system and eventual paralysis and death of the insect.
