Resistance

Warning:

Insecticide Resistance Warning

For insecticide resistance management METHOGRAIN IGR Grain Protectant is a Group 7A

insecticide.

Some naturally-occurring insect biotypes resistant to METHOGRAIN IGR Grain Protectant

and other Group 7A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect

population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if

METHOGRAIN IGR Grain Protectant or other Group 7A insecticides are used repeatedly.

The effectiveness of METHOGRAIN IGR Grain Protectant on resistant individuals could be

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

use, Babolna Bioenvironmental Centre Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result

from the failure of METHOGRAIN IGR Grain Protectant to control resistant insects.

METHOGRAIN IGR Grain Protectant may be subject to specific resistance management

strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Babolna Bioenvironmental

Centre Ltd representative or local agricultural department agronomist.

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: The oral LD

for Methoprene in rats is greater than 34,600 mg/kg, and in dogs is greater

than 5000 mg/kg. It is slightly toxic by skin exposure, with reported dermal LD

values of greater than 2000 to 3000

mg/kg in rabbits. Methoprene is not an eye or skin irritant, and it is not a skin sensitizer. The inhalation LC

Methoprene in rats is greater than 210 mg/L. No overt signs of poisoning have been reported in incidents involving

accidental human exposure to Methoprene.

Chronic toxicity: No Methoprene-related effects were observed in 2-year feeding trials with rats given doses of 250

mg/kg/day, nor in mice given 30 mg/kg/day. Liver changes were observed in mice fed 50 to 250 mg/kg/day of

Methoprene during an 18-month study. Increased liver weights occurred in rats fed 250 mg/kg/day for 90 days, but

not during a 24-month feeding study in which rats were fed 125 mg/kg/day.

Reproductive effects: Experimental data indicate that no reproductive hazards are associated with Methoprene. No

Methoprene-related effects were observed in three-generation reproduction studies in rats receiving dietary doses of

125 mg/kg/day.

Teratogenic effects: There have been no teratogenic effects in animals dosed with Methoprene; teratogenic effects

were not seen in rats at doses of about 25 mg/kg/day, or in rabbits at doses of about 15 mg/kg/day. Methoprene does

not appear to be teratogenic.

Mutagenic effects: Methoprene does not appear to be mutagenic. No Methoprene-related mutagenic effects were

observed in rats following a single dose of 2000 mg/kg.

Carcinogenic effects: No tumors were seen in an 18-month feeding study with mice, or in a 24-month oncogenicity

study with rats. These data suggest that Methoprene is not carcinogenic.

Organ toxicity: The target organ primarily affected by Methoprene after long-term exposure is the liver.

Fate in humans and animals: In mammals, Methoprene is rapidly and completely broken down and excreted, mostly

in the urine and faeces. Some evidence suggests that Methoprene metabolites are incorporated into natural body

components. Methoprene is excreted unchanged in cattle faeces in amounts that are sufficient to kill some larvae that

breed in dung.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

Effects on birds: Methoprene is slightly toxic to birds. The reported 5- to 8-day LC

values for Methoprene are

greater than 10,000 ppm in mallard ducks and bobwhite quail, and the acute oral LD

for Methoprene is greater than

4640 ppm in chickens. In mallards an acute oral LD

of greater than 2000 mg/kg was determined. Nonlethal effects

that may affect survival of the birds did appear at acute oral doses of 500 mg/kg. These effects appeared as soon as

2 hours after treatment and persisted for up to 2 days and included slowness, reluctance to move, sitting, withdrawal,

and incoordination. These effects may decrease bird survival by making them temporarily more susceptible to

predation. No effects were observed in the reproduction of bobwhite quail and mallard ducks at 30 ppm constant

feeding of Methoprene.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Methoprene is slightly to moderately toxic to fish. The reported 96-hour LC

values

for Methoprene were 4.6 mg/L in bluegill sunfish, 4.4 mg/L in trout, and greater than 100 mg/L in channel catfish and

largemouth bass. Methoprene residues may have a slight potential for bioconcentration in bluegill sunfish and

crayfish. Methoprene is very highly toxic to some species of freshwater, estuarine, and marine invertebrates, while the

acute LC

values are greater than 100 mg/L in freshwater shrimp, and it is greater than 0.1 mg/L in estuarine mud

crabs. Methoprene had very little effect, if any, on exposed non-target aquatic organisms including water fleas,

damselflies, snails, tadpoles, and mosquito fish.

Effects on other organisms: Tests with earthworms showed little if any toxic effects on contact. It is nontoxic to

bees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Methoprene is of low persistence in the soil environment; reported field half-

lives are up to 10 days. In sandy loam, its half-life was calculated to be about 10 days. When Methoprene was applied

at an extremely high application rate of 1 pound per acre, its half-life was less than 10 days. In soil, microbial

degradation is rapid and appears to be the major route of its disappearance from soil. Methoprene also readily

undergoes degradation by sunlight. Methoprene is rapidly and tightly sorbed to most soils. It is slightly soluble in

water. These properties, along with its low environmental persistence make it unlikely to be significantly mobile. In

field leaching studies, it was observed only in the top few inches of the soil, even after repeated washings with water.

Breakdown in water: Methoprene degrades rapidly in water. Studies have demonstrated half-lives in pond water of

about 30 and 40 hours at initial concentrations of 0.001 mg/L and 0.01 mg/L, respectively. At normal temperatures

and levels of sunlight, technical Methoprene is rapidly degraded, mainly by aquatic microorganisms and sunlight.

Breakdown in vegetation: Methoprene is biodegradable and non persistent, even in plants treated at very high

rates. It has a half-life of less than 2 days in alfalfa when applied at a rate of 1 pound per acre. In rice, the half-life is

less than 1 day. In wheat, its half-life was estimated to be 3 to 7 weeks, depending on the level of moisture in the

plant. Plants grown in treated soil are not expected to contain Methoprene residues.
