Leave powder undisturbed for as long as possible.

RESISTANCE WARNING

For insecticide resistance management Dragnet Dust is a Group 3A Insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Dragnet Dust and other Group 3A

Insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant

individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Dragnet Dust or other Group 3A

Insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Dragnet Dust on resistant individuals

could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect

prior to use, FMC Australasia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the

failure of Dragnet Dust to control resistant insects.

Dragnet Dust may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further

information contact your local supplier, FMC Australasia Pty Ltd representative or local

agricultural department agronomist.

Cover or remove any open food or water containers. Cover or remove fish ponds or aquariums

etc. before dusting.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Store in the closed, original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight.

Rinse containers before disposal. Dispose of at a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available,

bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this

purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product

should not be burnt.

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Potential Health Effects:

Permethrin has low oral and inhalation toxicity. Permethrin has been reviewed in the Australian

Pesticides

Veterinary

Medicine

Authority

(APVMA)

program

agricultural

veterinary

chemicals and classified as an irritant when present at concentrations such as those found in this

product, and may cause sensitisation by skin contact.

The talc used in this formulation contains no asbestos fibre but may be irritating to the eyes and

respiratory system.

Acute

Swallowed:

This product has low oral toxicity.

Eye:

This product is a mild irritant if dust enters the eyes.

Skin:

Mildly irritating. Avoid contact with skin. This product may cause sensitisation by skin

contact. These sensations are reversible and usually subside within 12 hours.

Inhaled:

Dust is harmful if inhaled with effects similar to those observed if swallowed. This

product may cause respiratory irritation if inhaled.

Chronic: No data available on this formulation. Permethrin is not known to be carcinogenic, genotoxic,

teratogenic or mutagenic. Permethrin is efficiently metabolized by mammalian livers. Breakdown

products, or metabolites of Permethrin are quickly excreted and do not persist significantly in body

tissues. Permethrin may persist in fatty tissues, with half-lives of 4 to 5 days in brain and body fat.

SECTION 12

ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Environmental Toxicology: Permethrin is of low to moderate persistence in the soil environment, with

reported half-lives of 30 - 38 days. Permethrin is readily degraded in most soils except organic types.

Soil microorganisms play a large role in the degradation of Permethrin in the soil and it has also been

observed that the availability of sodium and phosphorous decreases when Permethrin is added to the

soil. Permethrin is tightly bound by soils, especially by organic matter. Very little leaching of Permethrin

has been reported. It is not very mobile in a wide range of soil types. Because Permethrin binds very

strongly to soil particles and is nearly insoluble in water, it is not expected to leach or to contaminate

groundwater.

Environmental Properties: Permethrin is practically non-toxic to birds. LD

= 9900 mg/kg mallard

ducks, >13,500 mg/kg in pheasants, and >15,500 mg/kg in Japanese quail. Permethrin is toxic to

aquatic organisms. 48-hour LC

= 0.0125 mg/L rainbow trout; 48-hour LC

= 0.0018 mg/L bluegill

sunfish and salmon. Toxic to daphnia magna 48 hour LC

= 0.006 mg/L. Bioconcentration factor for

Permethrin in bluefish is 715 and 703 in catfish. This indicates that permethrin has a low to moderate

potential to accumulate in these fish. Permethrin is extremely toxic to bees. Severe losses may be

expected if bees are present at treatment time, or within a day thereafter. Permethrin is also toxic to

some wildlife. It should not be applied or allowed to drift, to crops or weeds in which active foraging

takes place.
