Flonicamid is a pyridine organic compound used as an insecticide on aphids, whiteflies, and thrips.[1] It disrupts insect chordotonal organs that can affect hearing, balance, movement to cause cessation of feeding, but the specific target site of the chemical is unknown.[2] It is typically sold as wettable granules mixed with water before spraying.[1]
