Outdoor Use: Select a time when air is still and clear area of people, animals and unpacked

foodstuffs etc. Evacuate areas before and for 4 hours after treatment.

Mixing directions: Open, decant and mix only in well ventilated outdoor areas. Imtrade

Dichlorvos 500 Insecticide is an emulsifiable concentrate, which mixes spontaneously with

soft or hard water. Add the measured amount to the required amount of water in the mixing

vessel or spray tank. Thoroughly agitate the mixture to ensure that it is uniform throughout.

Resistance

Warning:

For insecticide resistance management Imtrade Dichlorvos 500 Insecticide is a Group

1B Insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Imtrade Dichlorvos

500 Insecticide and other Group 1B Insecticides may exist through normal genetic

variability in any insect population if Imtrade Dichlorvos 500 Insecticide or other Group 1B

Insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Imtrade Dichlorvos 500 Insecticide

on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant

individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Imtrade Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability

for any losses that may result from failure of Imtrade Dichlorvos 500 Insecticide to control

resistant insects. Imtrade Dichlorvos 500 Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance

management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Imtrade

Australia Pty Ltd representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

Emergency Overview

Physical Description & Colour

: Yellowish coloured liquid.

Odour:

Mild aromatic hydrocarbon odour.

Major Health Hazards:

Symptoms of acute exposure to organophosphate or cholinesterase-inhibiting compounds

may include numbness, tingling sensations, incoordination, headache, dizziness, tremor, nausea, abdominal cramps,

sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing or respiratory depression, slow heartbeat. Very high doses may result in

unconsciousness, incontinence, and convulsions or fatality. very toxic by inhalation, toxic in contact with skin and if

swallowed, possible skin sensitiser, if aspirated, may cause lung damage. Signs and symptoms associated with mild

exposures to organophosphate and carbamate pesticides include: headache, fatigue, dizziness, loss of appetite with

nausea, stomach cramps and diarrhoea; blurred vision associated with excessive tearing; contracted pupils of the

eye; excessive sweating and salivation; slowed heartbeat, often fewer than 50 per minute; rippling of surface muscles

just under the skin. These symptoms may be mistaken for those of flu, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, or upset

stomach. Moderately severe organophosphate and carbamate insecticide poisoning cases exhibit all the signs and

symptoms found in mild poisonings, but in addition, the victim: is unable to walk; often complains of chest discomfort

and tightness; exhibits marked constriction of the pupils (pinpoint pupils); exhibits muscle twitching; has involuntary

urination and bowel movement. Severe poisonings are indicated by incontinence, unconsciousness and seizures.

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

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The SWA 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 may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no

longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated 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 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

General Information:

You should call The Poisons Information Centre if you feel that you may have been poisoned, burned or irritated by

this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is available at all

times. Have this SDS with you when you call.

If swallowed, splashed on skin or inhaled, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor at once. Remove any

contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. If swallowed, use of activated charcoal may be advised.

Inhalation:

If inhalation occurs, contact a Poisons Information Centre. Urgent hospital treatment is likely to be

needed. Remove source of contamination or move victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, oxygen may be beneficial

if administered by trained personnel, preferably on a doctor's advice. DO NOT allow victim to move about

unnecessarily. Symptoms of pulmonary oedema can be delayed up to 48 hours after exposure.

Skin Contact:

Flush contaminated area with lukewarm, gently flowing water for at least 20-30 minutes, by the clock.

DO NOT INTERRUPT FLUSHING. If necessary, keep emergency vehicle waiting (show paramedics this SDS and

take their advice). Under running water, remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (eg watchbands and

belts). If breathing has stopped, trained personnel should begin artificial respiration or, if the heart has stopped,

cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) immediately.

Eye Contact:

Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 20 minutes or until

the product is removed, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water into the

unaffected eye or onto the face. Obtain medical attention immediately. Take special care if exposed person is wearing

contact lenses.

Ingestion:

If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting; rinse mouth thoroughly with water and contact a Poisons

Information Centre, or call a doctor at once. Give activated charcoal if instructed. Give atropine if instructed.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicity:

An information profile for Dichlorvos is available at http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/ghindex.html

Acute toxicity: Dichlorvos is highly toxic by inhalation, dermal absorption, and ingestion. Because Dichlorvos is

volatile, inhalation is the most common route of exposure. Dichlorvos is readily absorbed through the skin. Acute

illness from Dichlorvos is limited to the effects of cholinesterase inhibition. Dichlorvos is rapidly metabolized and

eliminated from the body. Persons with reduced lung function, convulsive disorders, liver disorders, or recent

exposure to cholinesterase inhibitors will be at increased risk from exposure to Dichlorvos. Alcoholic beverages may

enhance the toxic effects of Dichlorvos. Dichlorvos is mildly irritating to skin. Concentrates of Dichlorvos may cause

burning sensations, or actual burns. Application of 1.67 mg/kg Dichlorvos in rabbits' eyes produced mild redness and

swelling, but no injury to the cornea. Symptoms of acute exposure to organophosphate or cholinesterase-inhibiting

compounds may include numbness, tingling sensations, incoordination, headache, dizziness, tremor, nausea,

abdominal cramps, sweating, blurred vision, difficulty breathing or respiratory depression, slow heartbeat. Very high

doses may result in unconsciousness, incontinence, and convulsions or fatality. Some organophosphates may cause

delayed symptoms beginning 1 to 4 weeks after an acute exposure that may or may not have produced immediate

symptoms. In such cases, numbness, tingling, weakness, and cramping may appear in the lower limbs and progress

to incoordination and paralysis. Improvement may occur over months or years, but some residual impairment may

remain. The oral LD

for Dichlorvos is 61 to 175 mg/kg in mice, 100 to 1090 mg/kg in dogs, 15 mg/kg in chickens, 25

to 80 mg/kg in rats, 157 mg/kg in pigs, and 11 to 12.5 mg/kg in rabbits. The dermal LD

for Dichlorvos is 70.4 to 250

mg/kg in rats, 206 mg/kg in mice, and 107 mg/kg in rabbits. The 4-hour LC

for Dichlorvos is greater than 0.2 mg/L in

rats.

Chronic toxicity: Repeated or prolonged exposure to organophosphates may result in the same effects as acute

exposure, including the delayed symptoms. Other effects reported in workers repeatedly exposed include impaired

memory and concentration, disorientation, severe depressions, irritability, confusion, headache, speech difficulties,

delayed reaction times, nightmares, sleepwalking, and drowsiness or insomnia. An influenza like condition with

headache, nausea, weakness, loss of appetite, and malaise has also been reported. Repeated, small doses generally

have no effect on treated animals. Chronic exposure to Dichlorvos will cause fluid to build up in the lungs (pulmonary

oedema). Liver enlargement has occurred in pigs maintained for long periods of time on high doses. Dichlorvos

caused adverse liver effects, and lung haemorrhages may occur at high doses in dogs. In male rats, repeated high

doses caused abnormalities in the tissues of the lungs, heart, thyroid, liver, and kidneys.

Reproductive effects: There is no evidence that Dichlorvos affects reproduction.

Teratogenic effects: There is no evidence that Dichlorvos is teratogenic.

Mutagenic effects: Dichlorvos can bind to molecules such as DNA. For this reason, there has been extensive testing

of Dichlorvos for mutagenicity. Several studies have shown Dichlorvos to be a mutagen; for example, Dichlorvos is

reported positive in the Ames mutagenicity assay and in other tests involving bacterial or animal cell cultures.

However, no evidence of mutagenicity has been found in tests performed on live animals. Its lack of mutagenicity in

live animals may be due to rapid metabolism and excretion.

Carcinogenic effects: Dichlorvos has been classified as a possible human carcinogen because it caused tumours in

rats and mice in some studies but not others. However, current evidence about the carcinogenicity of Dichlorvos is

inconclusive.

Phone: 1800 171 799

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

Organ toxicity: Dichlorvos primarily affects the nervous system through cholinesterase inhibition, the blockage of an

enzyme required for proper nerve functioning.

Fate in humans and animals: Dichlorvos is remarkable for its rapid metabolism and excretion by mammals.

Dichlorvos does not accumulate in body tissues and has not been detected in the milk of cows or rats, even when the

animals were given doses high enough to produce symptoms of severe poisoning.

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

This product is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This product is biodegradable. It will not accumulate in the soil or

water or cause long term problems.

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Dichlorvos has low persistence in soil. Half-lives of 7 days were measured on

clay, sandy clay, and loose sandy soil. In soil, Dichlorvos is subject to hydrolysis and biodegradation.

Breakdown in water: In water, Dichlorvos remains in solution and does not adsorb to sediments. It degrades

primarily by hydrolysis, with a half-life of approximately 4 days in lakes and rivers. This half-life will vary from 20 to 80

hours between pH 4 and pH 9.

Breakdown in vegetation: Except for cucumbers, roses, and some chrysanthemums, plants tolerate Dichlorvos very

well.
