Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine. They are broad spectrum insecticides and they are systemic. The selective toxicity of neonicotinoids for insects versus mammals is due to the higher sensitivity of insects’ acetylcholine receptors. It’s worth noting that neonicotinoids are highly toxic to bees.
