Emergency Overview

Physical Description & colour: Clear yellow liquid.
Odour: Characteristic hydrocarbon odour.
Major Health Hazards: Symptoms and consequences of Deltamethrin poisoning include: sweating, fever, anxiety and rapid heartbeat. If swallowed, symptoms are likely to include feeling sick, vomiting, diarrhoea, twitching of arms and legs, and convulsions if poisoning is severe. Studies have shown many cases of dermal Deltamethrin poisoning after agricultural use with inadequate handling precautions, and many cases of accidental or suicidal poisoning by the oral route at doses estimated to be 2-250 mg/kg. This product is irritating to eyes and skin, harmful if swallowed, if aspirated, may cause lung damage.

Aromatic hydrocarbons 64742-94-5 811g/L not set not set
Other non hazardous ingredients secret to 100 not set  not set

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 11 - Toxicological Information: 

Toxicity: Deltamethrin produces typical type II motor symptoms in mammals. Type II symptoms include a writhing syndrome in rodents, as well as copious salivation. The acute oral LD50 in male rats ranged from 128 mg/kg to greater than 5,000 mg/kg depending on the carrier and conditions of the study; the LD50 for female rats was 52 mg/kg and other published values range from 31 to 139 mg/kg. Values ranging from 21 to 34 mg/kg were obtained for mice; while dogs had a reported LD50 of 300 mg/kg. The acute percutaneous LD50 for rats was reported to be greater than 2,000 mg/kg; greater than 10,000 mg/kg for quail; and greater than 4,640 mg/kg for ducks. The acute dermal LD50 for rabbits was greater than 2,000 mg/kg. No skin irritation and slight eye irritation were reported.

Chronic Toxicity: In 2-year feeding trials, the reported NEL (no effect level) was 12 mg/kg diet for mice; and 2.1 mg/kg diet for rats. The dose without activity in rats over a 90-day period was 10 mg/kg/day. Suspected chronic exposure effects in humans include the following: choreoathetosis, hypotension, prenatal damage and shock. Workers exposed to deltamethrin during its manufacture over 7-8 years experienced transient cutaneous and mucous membrane irritation, which could be prevented by use of gloves and face masks. No other ill effects were seen.

Reproductive Effects: A reproductive 3-generation study in rats reported a reproductive NOEL to be greater than 2.5 mg/kg/day. Levels tested were 0, 0.1, 1.0 and 2.5 mg/kg/day. Oral administration of deltamethrin to mice on days 7 to 16 of gestation produced a dosage-related reduction of weight gain but no effect on the number of implants, fetal mortality, fetal weight or malformations.

Teratogenic Effects: There were no reported teratogenic effects in mice, rats and rabbits. Deltamethrin has no teratogenic activity.

Mutagenic Effects: There were no mutagenic effects in mice, rats and rabbits. Deltamethrin has no mutagenic activity.

Carcinogenic Effects: No information was available.

Organ Toxicity: Deltamethrin is hydrolyzed by liver microsomal enzymes to 3-(2,2dibromovinyl) 2,2-cyclopropane carboxylic acid and 3-phenoxybenzaldehyde.

Fate in Humans and Animals: Elimination of the compound in the rat occurs within 2-4 days of administration. Pyrethroid-poisoned mice and rats die during seizures within one or two hours after treatment. Metabolites of the cyano substituent are eliminated more slowly, and tissue levels remain relatively high, especially in the skin and stomach. Deltamethrin at an oral dosage of 50 mg/kg produces a marked increase of cGMP but not cAMP in the brain of rats. Metabolism of deltamethrin in rats involves rapid ester cleavage and hydroxylation. Deltamethrin has a half-life in the rat brain of 1 to 2 days, but it is more persistent in body fat, with a half-life of 5 days. In mammals, the point of death from deltamethrin poisoning is sharply defined by respiratory or cardiac failure. Rats and dogs given oral doses of 10 mg/kg/day for 13 weeks exhibited some motor symptoms but no fatalities or pathological changes. The dogs exhibited diarrhea and vomiting. In another study, rats given 15 daily oral doses of 10 mg/kg showed severe motor symptoms, but a full neuropathological examination of the central nervous system showed no pathological changes. A health survey of 199 workers who repacked pyrethroid insecticides into boxes by hand indicated that about two-thirds of the workers had a burning sensation and tightness and numbness on the face, while one-third had sniffs and sneezes. Abnormal sensations in the face, dizziness, tiredness and red rashes on the skin were more common in summer than in winter. Workers did not wear protective gloves in summer because of the heat. The symptoms usually occurred thirty minutes after exposure to the pyrethroids and rarely lasted more than 24 hours. Cold burning and numbness of the skin occurred to two-thirds of humans in a Chinese factory exposed to about 5-12 mg deltamethrin per cubic meter of air. The other third suffered from sneezing and eye-watering. In addition, headache, heartburn and skin spots were reported, and these symptoms were dependent on the time of the year.

Potential Health Effects

See section 11 for Chronic exposure studies.
Short term exposure: Available data indicates that this product is not harmful. In addition product is unlikely to cause any discomfort or irritation.
Skin Contact:
Short term exposure: Available data indicates that this product is not harmful. It should present no hazards in normal use. However product may be irritating, but is unlikely to cause anything more than mild transient discomfort. Skin contact is likely to cause temporary facial numbness.
Eye Contact:
Short term exposure: Available data shows that this product is not harmful. However product is an eye irritant. Symptoms may include stinging and reddening of eyes and watering which may become copious. Other symptoms may also become evident. If exposure is brief, symptoms should disappear once exposure has ceased. However, lengthy exposure or delayed treatment may cause permanent damage.
Short term exposure: Available data shows that this product is harmful - see above for symptoms. This product is unlikely to cause any irritation problems in the short or long term.
Carcinogen Status:
SWA: No significant ingredient is classified as carcinogenic by SWA.
NTP: No significant ingredient is classified as carcinogenic by NTP.
IARC: Deltamethrin is Class 3 - unclassifiable as to carcinogenicity to humans.

section 12 - Ecological Information: 

Effects on Birds: The reported 8-day LC50 for ducks was greater than 4,640 mg/kg diet; and greater than 10,000 mg/kg diet for quail.
Effects on Aquatic Organisms: As is common with many pyrethoids, deltamethrin has a high toxicity to fish under laboratory conditions. However, in field conditions under normal conditions of use, fish are not harmed. Deltamethrin had an impact on aquatic herbivorous insects. This impact led to an increase of algae. Although the fish (fathead minnows) accumulated the deltamethrin, no mortality could be observed. In laboratory trials, the LC50 for fish was 1-10 micrograms/l. Aquatic fauna, particularly crustacea, may be affected, but fish are not harmed under normal conditions of use.
Effects on Other Animals (Nontarget species): Deltamethrin is considered toxic to bees. The 24 hour oral LD50 for technical deltamethrin fed to bees was 0.079μg/bee; and the 24 hour oral LD50 for the EC formulation of deltamethrin was equal to or greater than 0.4μg/bee. The reported contact LD50 for bees is 0.05μg/bee, but with a field rate of only 12 g active ingredient/ha, the hazard ratio is very low. A hazard ratio is defined as exposure (g active ingredient/ha) divided by intrinsic toxicity (LD50 in μg/bee). The hazard ratio is a risk estimate, or an indicator of the level of mortality that is to be expected in the field. A ratio of greater than 50 indicates the chemical is not dangerous to bees. A ratio between 50 and 2,500 indicates a field test is needed, and over 2,500 indicates the compound is considered dangerous to bees. Although the intrinsic toxicity of deltamethrin is similar to that of organophosphates such as azinphos-methyl, the low rate of use of deltamethrin makes its hazard ratio considerably lower (the azinphos-methyl hazard ratio is 8937). Deltamethrin is very toxic over long periods to the predatory mite Typhodromum pyri. The parasitic wasp Encarsia formosa, released in greenhouses to combat whitefly, is too sensitive to allow a treatment with deltamethrin against excessive outbreaks of whiteflies. Deltamethrin had little or no effect on adults or cocoons of Apanteles plutellae, a parasite of the diamond back moth in India. Spiders were also indicated to be strongly affected in field investigations.
Breakdown of Chemical in Soil and Groundwater: In soil, degradation occurs within 1-2 weeks.
Breakdown of Chemical in Surface Water: Deltamethrin in pond water was rapidly adsorbed, mostly by sediment, in addition to uptake by plants and evaporation into the air.
Breakdown of Chemical in Vegetation: About 10 days after use, there are no deltamethrin residues observed on plants. There is no known phytotoxicity to crops.
