Is clothianidin a neonicotinoid (neonic) insecticide?

Yes, clothianidin is a neonicotinoid (neonic) insecticide. With new insecticide seed treatment entrants coming into the market, it’s important to remember that neonic seed treatments, such as the insecticide clothianidin in Vercoras® seed treatment, still play a vital role in protecting canola against flea beetles. Neonics continue to be the base for insecticide seed treatments in canola and provide valuable frontline protection against flea beetles during canola’s early growth stages.
