How does Maldison 50 Insecticide work?
The active ingredient in Maldison 50, Malathion, kills insects by preventing their nervous system from working properly. When healthy nerves send signals to each other, a special chemical messenger travels from one nerve to another to continue the message. The nerve signal stops when an enzyme is released into the space between the nerves. Malathion binds to the enzyme and prevents the nerve signal from stopping. This causes the nerves to signal to each other without stopping. The constant nerve signals make it so the insects can’t move or breathe normally and they die. Malathion is highly toxic to bees and other beneficial insects, some fish, and other aquatic life. Malathion is moderately toxic to other fish and birds and is considered low in toxicity to mammals.
