How it works?
Novel mode of action
- Interferes with respiration & acts on mitochondria (power house)
- Intrepid stops the battery of the insect !! (Conversion of ADP to ATP in Mitochondria generates chemical energy for cell functions in insects)
- Intrepid lodges between inner and outer membranes of Mitochondria and prevents ATP production.
- Hence cells stop functioning and insect dies from inability to produce its own energy
