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 MSDS with you when you call.

Inhalation:

No first aid measures normally required. However, if inhalation has occurred, and irritation has

developed, remove to fresh air and observe until recovered. If irritation becomes painful or persists more than about

30 minutes, seek medical advice.

Skin Contact:

Wash gently and thoroughly with water (use non-abrasive soap if necessary) for 5 minutes or until

chemical is removed.

Eye Contact:

No effects expected. If irritation does occur, flush contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing

water for 5 minutes or until the product is removed. Obtain medical advice if irritation becomes painful or lasts more

than a few minutes. Take special care if exposed person is wearing contact lenses.

Section 11 - Toxicological Information

ABAMECTIN:

The oral LD

for abamectin in rats is 10 mg/kg, and in mice ranges from 14 mg/kg to greater than 80 mg/kg. The

dermal LD

for technical abamectin in rats and rabbits is greater than 330 mg/kg. Symptoms of poisoning observed in

laboratory animals include pupil dilation, vomiting, convulsions and/or tremors, and coma. At very high doses, it can

affect mammals, causing symptoms of nervous system depression such as incoordination, tremors, lethargy,

excitation, and pupil dilation. Abamectin is not readily absorbed through skin. Tests with monkeys show that less than

1% of dermally applied abamectin was absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin. Abamectin does not cause

allergic skin reactions.

Chronic toxicity: In a 1-year study with dogs given oral doses of abamectin, dogs at the 0.5 and 1 mg/kg/day doses

exhibited pupil dilation, weight loss, lethargy, tremors, and recumbency. Similar results were seen in a 2-year study

with rats fed 0.75, 1.5, or 2 mg/kg/day. Rats at all the dosage levels exhibited body weight gains significantly higher

than the controls. A few individuals in the high dose group exhibited tremors. When mice were fed 8 mg/kg/day for 94

weeks, the males developed dermatitis and changes in blood formation in the spleen, while females exhibited tremors

and weight loss.

Section 12 - Ecological Information

This product is harmful to aquatic organisms.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Abamectin is highly toxic to fish and extremely toxic to aquatic invertebrates. Its LC

(96-hour) is 0.003 mg/L in rainbow trout, 0.0096 mg/L in bluegill sunfish, 0.015 mg/L in sheepshead minnows, 0.024

mg/L in channel catfish, and 0.042 mg/L in carp. Its 48-hour LC

in Daphnia magna, a small freshwater crustacean, is

0.003 mg/L. The 96-hour LC

for abamectin is 0.0016 mg/L in pink shrimp, 430 mg/L in eastern oysters, and 153

mg/L in blue crab. While highly toxic to aquatic organisms, actual concentrations of abamectin in surface waters

adjacent to treated areas are expected to be low. Abamectin did not bioaccumulate in bluegill sunfish exposed to

0.099 μg/L for 28 days in a flow-through tank. The levels in fish were from 52 to 69 times the ambient water

concentration, indicating that abamectin does not accumulate or persist in fish.

Section 13 - Disposal Considerations

Disposal:

Dispose of small quantities and empty containers by wrapping with paper and putting in garbage. For

larger quantities, if recycling or reclaiming is not possible, use a commercial waste disposal service.

Section 14 - Transport Information

ADG Code:

This product is not classified as a Dangerous Good. No special transport conditions are necessary
