This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5

day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that should not be exceeded for more than 15 minutes and should

not be repeated for more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The term "peak "is

used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

Section 11 – Toxicological Information

Toxicity:

Acute toxicity: Permethrin is harmful to non-harmful via the oral route, with a reported LD

for technical

Permethrin in rats of 430 to 4000 mg/kg. Via the dermal route, it is not harmful, with a reported dermal LD

in rats of

over 4000 mg/kg, and in rabbits of greater 2000 mg/kg. Permethrin caused mild irritation of both the intact and

abraded skin of rabbits. It also caused conjunctivitis when it was applied to the eyes. The 4-hour inhalation LC

rats was greater than 23.5 mg/L, indicating practically no inhalation toxicity. The toxicity of Permethrin is dependent

on the ratio of the isomers present; the cis-isomer being more toxic.

Chronic toxicity: No adverse effects were observed in dogs fed Permethrin at doses of 5 mg/kg/day for 90 days.

Rats fed 150 mg/kg/day for 6 months showed a slight increase in liver weights. Very low levels of Permethrin in the

diet of chickens (0.1 ppm for 3 to 6 weeks after hatching) have been reported to suppress immune system activity.

Date of Issue

20 July, 2015

Emergency: Virbac: 02 9772 9772 or 1800 242 100 (Business hours only)

Poisons Information Centre: 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia, (0800 764 766 in New Zealand)

Reproductive effects: The fertility of female rats was affected when they received very high oral doses of 250

mg/kg/day of Permethrin during the 6th to 15th day of pregnancy. It is not likely that reproductive effects will be seen

in humans under normal circumstances.

Teratogenic effects: Permethrin is reported to show no teratogenic activity.

Mutagenic effects: Permethrin is reported to show no mutagenic activity.

Carcinogenic effects: The evidence regarding the carcinogenicity of Permethrin is inconclusive.

Organ toxicity: Permethrin is suspected of causing liver enlargement of the liver and nerve damage. Effects on the

immune system have been noted in animal studies.

Fate in humans and animals: Permethrin is efficiently metabolized by mammalian livers. Breakdown products, or

"metabolites," of Permethrin are quickly excreted and do not persist significantly in body tissues. When Permethrin is

administered orally to rats, it is rapidly metabolized and almost completely eliminated from the body in a few days.

Only 3 to 6% of the original dose was excreted unchanged in the faeces of experimental animals. Permethrin may

persist in fatty tissues, with half-lives of 4 to 5 days in brain and body fat. Permethrin does not block, or inhibit,

cholinesterase enzymes.

Section 12 – Ecological Information

Effects on birds: Permethrin is practically non-toxic to birds. The oral LD

for a Permethrin formulation is greater

than 9900 mg/kg in mallard ducks, greater than 13,500 mg/kg in pheasants, and greater than 15,500 mg/kg in

Japanese quail.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Aquatic ecosystems are particularly vulnerable to the impact of Permethrin. A fragile

balance exists between the quality and quantity of insects and other invertebrates that serve as fish food. The 48-hour

for rainbow trout is 0.0125 mg/L for 24 hours, and 0.0054 mg/L for 48 hours. The 48-hour LC

in bluegill sunfish

and salmon is 0.0018 mg/L. As a group, synthetic pyrethroids were toxic to all estuarine species tested. They had a

96-hour LC

of less than or equal to 0.0078 mg/L for these species. The bioconcentration factor for Permethrin in

bluefish is 715 times the concentrations in water and is 703 in catfish. This indicates that the compound has a low to

moderate potential to accumulate in these organisms.

Effects on other organisms: 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 wildlife. It should not be applied, or

allowed to drift, to crops or weeds in which active foraging takes place.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Permethrin is of low to moderate persistence in the soil environment, with

reported half-lives of 30 to 38 days. Permethrin is readily broken down, or degraded, in most soils except organic

types. Soil microorganisms play a large role in the degradation of Permethrin in the soil. The addition of nutrients to

soil may increase the degradation of Permethrin. It has 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.

Breakdown in water: The results of one study near estuarine areas showed that Permethrin had a half-life of less

than 2.5 days. When exposed to sunlight, the half-life was 4.6 days. Permethrin degrades rapidly in water, although it

can persist in sediments. There was a gradual loss of toxicity after Permethrin aged for 48 hours in sunlight at 0.05

mg/L in water.
