SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicity:

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

Acute toxicity: Cypermethrin is a harmful material by dermal absorption or ingestion. The oral LD

for cypermethrin

in rats is 250 mg/kg (in corn oil) or 4123 mg/kg (in water). The oral LD

varies from 367 to 2000 mg/kg in female rats,

and from 82 to 779 mg/kg in mice, depending on the ratio of cis/trans- isomers present. This wide variation in toxicity

may reflect different mixtures of isomers in the materials tested. The dermal LD

in rats is 1600 mg/kg and in rabbits

is greater than 2000 mg/kg.

Chronic toxicity: Not Available

Reproductive effects: No adverse effects on reproduction were observed in a three-generation study with rats given

doses of 37.5 mg/kg/day, the highest dose tested.

Teratogenic effects: Cypermethrin is not teratogenic. No birth defects were observed in the offspring of rats given

doses as high as 70 mg/kg/day nor in the offspring of rabbits given doses as high as 30 mg/kg/day.

Mutagenic effects: Cypermethrin is not mutagenic, but tests with very high doses on mice caused a temporary

increase in the number of bone marrow cells with micronuclei. Other tests for mutagenic effects in human, bacterial,

and hamster cell cultures and in live mice have been negative.

Carcinogenic effects: EPA has classified cypermethrin as a possible human carcinogen because available

information is inconclusive. It caused benign lung tumours in female mice at the highest dose tested (229 mg/kg/day);

however, no tumours occurred in rats given high doses of up to 75 mg/kg/day.

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET

Phone: (02)9899 0444

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

Organ toxicity: Pyrethroids like cypermethrin may cause adverse effects on the central nervous system. Rats fed

high doses (37.5 mg/kg) of the cis-isomer of cypermethrin for five weeks exhibited severe motor incoordination, while

20 to 30% of rats fed 85 mg/kg died 4 to 17 days after treatment began. Long-term feeding studies have shown

increased liver and kidney weights and adverse changes in liver tissues in test animals. Pathological changes in the

cortex of the thymus, liver, adrenal glands, lungs, and skin were observed in rabbits repeatedly fed high doses of

cypermethrin.

Fate in humans and animals: In humans, urinary excretion of cypermethrin metabolites was complete 48 hours after

the last of five doses of 1.5 mg/kg/day. Studies in rats have shown that cypermethrin is rapidly metabolized by

hydroxylation and cleavage, with over 99% being eliminated within hours. The remaining 1% becomes stored in body

fat. This portion is eliminated slowly, with a half-life of 18 days for the cis-isomer and 3.4 days for the trans-isomer.

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Effects on birds: Cypermethrin is practically non-toxic to birds. No adverse reproductive effects occurred in mallards

or bobwhite quail given 50 ppm, the highest dose tested.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Cypermethrin is very highly toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Cypermethrin is

metabolized and eliminated significantly more slowly by fish than by mammals or birds, which may explain this

compound's higher toxicity in fish compared to other organisms. The half-lives for elimination of several pyrethroids by

trout are all greater than 48 hours, while elimination half-lives in birds and mammals range from 6 to 12 hours. The

bioconcentration factor for cypermethrin in rainbow trout was 1200 times the ambient water concentration, indicating

that there is a moderate potential to accumulate in aquatic organisms. Elimination of half of the accumulated amount

of the compound took nearly eight days.

Effects on other organisms: Cypermethrin is highly toxic to bees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Cypermethrin has a moderate persistence in soils. Under laboratory

conditions, cypermethrin degrades more rapidly on sandy clay and sandy loam soils than on clay soils, and more

rapidly in soils low in organic material. In aerobic conditions, its soil half-life is 4 days to 8 weeks. Cypermethrin is not

soluble in water and has a strong tendency to adsorb to soil particles. It is therefore unlikely to cause groundwater

contamination.

Breakdown in water: In neutral or acid aqueous solution, cypermethrin hydrolyses slowly, with hydrolysis being more

rapid at pH 9 (basic solution). Under normal environmental temperatures and pH, cypermethrin is stable to hydrolysis

with a half-life of greater than 50 days and to photodegradation with a half-life of greater than 100 days. In pond

waters and in laboratory degradation studies, pyrethroid concentrations decrease rapidly due to sorption to sediment,

suspended particles and plants. Microbial degradation and photodegradation also occur.

Breakdown in vegetation: When applied to strawberry plants, 40% of the applied cypermethrin remained after one

day, 12% remained after three days, and 0.5% remained after seven days, with a light rain occurring on day 3. When

cypermethrin was applied to wheat, residues on the wheat were 4 ppm immediately after spraying and declined to 0.2

ppm 27 days later. No cypermethrin was detected in the grain.

SECTION 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Disposal:

There are many pieces of legislation covering waste disposal and they differ in each state and territory, so

each user must refer to laws operating in their area. In some areas, certain wastes must be tracked. The Hierarchy of

Controls seems to be common - the user should investigate: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle and only if all else fails

should disposal be considered. Note that properties of a product may change in use, so that the following suggestions

may not always be appropriate. The following may help you in properly addressing this matter for this product. Special

help is available for the disposal of Agricultural Chemicals. The product label will give general advice regarding

disposal of small quantities, and how to cleanse containers. However, for help with the collection of unwanted rural

chemicals, contact ChemClear 1800 008 182 http://www.chemclear.com.au/ and for help with the disposal of empty

drums, contact DrumMuster http://www.drummuster.com.au/ where you will find contact details for your area.
