Applications

Insecticide

2,3-Dichloropyridine is a key component of the active ingredient in anthranilic diamide insecticides, which offer excellent control of lepidopteran and hemipteran pests.  Because of their unique mechanism of action that targets the ryanodine receptor in insects, these pesticides can overcome resistance to other products while offering very low toxicity to mammals.
