Upon contact with moisture (from the environment or saliva ossach), active ingredients begin to provide a contact effect – the poison penetrates in hemolyamph and causes blocking of nerve impulses.

With the help of jaws, the scabs are trying to clear the mustache and paws from contamination, as a result, part of the toxins turns out to be in its digestive tract. After a few minutes, the insect becomes inadequate, soon the paralysis and subsequent death behind him.

The principle of action of poisoning sprays differs slightly. In this case, the poison penetrates into the lungs and prevents the phasite breathing. Death occurs almost instantly.
