Mode of Action

Fenpyroximate 5% SC is an acaricide, which means it is an insecticide that targets mites and ticks. Its mode of action is based on disrupting the energy production process of the mite’s cells by inhibiting mitochondrial electron transport. Fenpyroximate works by binding to a specific site on complex III of the mitochondrial respiratory chain. This complex is responsible for transferring electrons from coenzyme Q to cytochrome c, a critical step in the production of ATP, the energy source for the mite. By inhibiting complex III, fenpyroximate disrupts the electron transport chain and blocks the production of ATP, leading to a decrease in energy production and ultimately causing the mite’s death.
