SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Only acute toxicity studies have been performed on the formulated product. The non-acute information pertains to the technical-grade active ingredients, imidacloprid and beta-cyfluthrin, an enriched isomer mixture of cyfluthrin. Further toxicological information on technical-grade cyfluthrin can be obtained by calling the Product Information Number, which is listed in Section 1 of this MSDS.

Acute oral toxicity
female rat : LD50 : > 1,044 mg/kg
Acute dermal toxicity
rat : LD50 : > 2,000 mg/kg
Acute inhalation toxicity
rat : LC50 : > 2.03 mg/l
Exposure time: 4 h
Determined in the form of liquid aerosol.
highest concentration tested
No deaths
Skin irritation
rabbit : slight irritation
Eye irritation

rabbit : Mild eye irritation.

Sensitisation
guinea pig : Non-sensitizing.
Chronic toxicity
Imidacloprid caused thyroid and/or liver effects in chronic dietary studies in rats and dogs. Cyfluthrin, a racemic mixture containing beta-cyfluthrin, caused no long term effects in rat, mice or dogs.
Assessment Carcinogenicity

Imidacloprid was not carcinogenic in studies in rats and mice.

Cyfluthrin was not carcinogenic in studies in rats and mice.
ACGIH
None.
NTP
None.
IARC
None.
OSHA
None.
Reproductive toxicity
REPRODUCTION: Imidacloprid was not a reproductive toxicant in a multigeneration study in rats.

Beta-Cyfluthrin was not a reproductive toxicant in a multi-generation study in rats.

DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Imidacloprid is not considered a primary developmental toxicant in rats and rabbits. Developmental effects were observed at doses that caused maternal toxicity.

Beta-cyfluthrin was not a primary developmental toxicant in rats. Developmental effects were observed but were considered secondary to maternal toxicity.

Neurotoxicity
Imidacloprid showed slight behavioral and activity changes only at the highest dose tested in neurotoxicity studies in rats. There were no correlating morphological changes observed in the neural tissues.

Beta-cyfluthrin produced slight transient neurobehavioral effects in acute, subchronic and developmental neurotoxicity screening studies in rats. These effects occurred at the highest dose tested and without correlating morphological changes in the neural tissues.

Mutagenicity
Imidacloprid was not mutagenic or genotoxic based on the overall weight of evidence in a battery of in vitro and in vivo tests.

Beta-cyfluthrin was not mutagenic or genotoxic in a battery of in vitro and in vivo tests.

SECTION 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Environmental precautions
Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Drift and runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in adjacent sites. Do not contaminate surface or ground water by cleaning equipment or disposal of wastes, including equipment wash water. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds if bees are visiting the treatment area.
