19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

Contact and residual
A group 3A, synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and acaricide that acts as a voltage dependent sodium channel agonist.
Maximum kill may take up to 48 hours to occur.

21. PESTICIDE RESISTANCE:

Some species may be resistant or develop resistance with continued application. Rotate with products from alternative groups.

22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S5
Summary: Low toxicity. Avoid breathing spray mist.
Details:
Poison schedule - S5
Mammalian toxicity -
Acute oral LD50 - 2250(male)-2646(female) mg/kg (rats), [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg] Not harmful.
Acute dermal LD50 - > 5000 mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin - Not harmful. Slight irritant. May cause sensitization.
Eye - Slight irritant.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > 2.72(male)-2.54(female) mg/kg (rat). Harmful. Inhalation of vapour is negligable but inhalation of spray mist must be avoided.
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - 0.1 mg/kg/day.
Not mutagenic, carcinogenic or teratogenic in animal tests (i.e. does not cause cancer or reproductive problems).
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) - 0.001 mg/kg/day

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

The aromatic hydrocarbon solvent may cause central nervous system depression (drunkeness) and narcosis.
Non-specific symptoms that may arise if the product is mishandled and overexposure occurs are nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea,
abdominal pain, ataxia, unsteady gait, hyperexcitablity, salivation, tremors and incontinence. Larger doses
may cause convulsions and loss of consciousness. If the victim is uncoordinated there is a greater
likelihood of vomit entering the lungs and causing subsequent complications. Aspiration pneumonia
(inflammation of the lung) may result. Contact with the skin may result in slight irritation. May have a
degreasing action on the skin. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may lead to irritant dermatitis. May
cause tingling, burning, itching or numbness in exposed areas which can last up to 36 hours.

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water and give water to drink. Induce vomitting.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Move person to fresh air and keep at rest until recovered. Remove any contaminated clothing and loosen
reaming clothing. Allow patient to assume the most comfortable position and keep warm. If breathing
laboured and patient cyanotic (blue) ensure airways are clear and have a qualified person give oxygen
through a face mask. If breathing has stooped, apply artificial respiration at once. In event of cardiac
arrest, apply external cardiac massage. Seek medical attention.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically. No specific antidote.
