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 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 or irritated by this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia and is available at all times. Have this MSDS with you when you call.

Carbon monoxide poisoning produces headache, weakness, nausea, dizziness, confusion, dimness of vision, disturbance of judgment, and unconsciousness followed by coma and death. Hydrogen cyanide poisoning signs and symptoms are weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, coma, convulsions, and death. Death results from respiratory arrest. Hydrogen cyanide gas acts very rapidly; symptoms and death can both occur quickly.

Polymerisation: This product is unlikely to undergo polymerisation processes.

section 11 - Toxicological Information: 


Acute toxicity: Methomyl is highly toxic orally, with reported oral LD50 values of 17 to 24 mg/kg in rats, 10 mg/kg in mice, and 15 mg/kg in guinea pigs. Symptoms of Methomyl exposure are similar to those caused by other carbamates and cholinesterase inhibitors. These may include weakness, blurred vision, headache, nausea, abdominal cramps, chest discomfort, constriction of pupils, sweating, muscle tremors, and decreased pulse. If there is severe poisoning, symptoms of twitching, giddiness, confusion, muscle incoordination, slurred speech, low blood pressure, heart irregularities, and loss of reflexes may also be experienced. Death can result from discontinued breathing, paralysis of muscles of the respiratory system, intense constriction of the openings of the lung, or all three. It is moderately toxic via inhalation with a reported 4-hour inhalation LC50 in male rats of 0.3 mg/L. Inhalation of dust or aerosol may cause irritation, lung and eye problems, with symptoms of chest tightness, blurred vision, tearing, wheezing, and headaches appearing upon exposure. Other systemic symptoms of cholinesterase inhibition may appear within a few minutes to several hours of exposure. It is slightly toxic via the dermal route, with a reported dermal LD50 of 5880 mg/kg in rabbits, and is absorbed only slowly through the skin. However, if sufficient amounts are absorbed through the skin, symptoms similar to those induced by ingestion or inhalation will develop. Within fifteen minutes to four hours of exposure, the immediate area of contact may show localized sweating and uncoordinated muscular contractions. In rabbits, application of Methomyl resulted in mild eye irritation. Pain, short-sightedness, blurring of distant vision, tearing, and other eye disturbances may occur within a few minutes of eye contact with Methomyl.

Chronic toxicity: Prolonged or repeated exposure to Methomyl may cause symptoms similar to the pesticide's acute effects. Repeated exposure to small amounts of Methomyl may cause an unsuspected inhibition of cholinesterase, resulting in flu-like symptoms, such as weakness, lack of appetite, and muscle aches. Cholinesterase-inhibition may persist for two to six weeks. This condition is reversible if exposure is discontinued. Since cholinesterase is increasingly inhibited with each exposure, severe cholinesterase-inhibition symptoms may be produced in a person who has had previous Methomyl exposure, while a person without previous exposure may not experience any symptoms at all. In a 24-month study with rats fed doses of 2.5, 5 or 20 mg/kg/day, effects were only observed at the highest dose tested, 20 mg/kg/day. At this very high dose, red blood cell counts and haemoglobin levels were significantly reduced in female rats. In a 2-year feeding study with dogs, 5 mg/kg/day caused no observed adverse effects. It is not likely that chronic effects would be seen in humans unless exposures were unexpectedly high, as with chronic misuse.

Reproductive effects: Methomyl fed to rats at dietary doses of 2.5 or 5 mg/kg for three generations caused no adverse effect on reproduction, nor was there any evidence of congenital abnormalities. No fetotoxicity was observed in offspring of pregnant rats given 33.9 mg/kg/day on day 6 to 21 of gestation. Based on these data it appears unlikely that Methomyl will have reproductive effects.

Teratogenic effects: No teratogenic effects were found in the foetuses of female rabbits that were fed approximately 15 to 30 mg/kg/day during the 8th to 16th day of gestation. In rats, no embryonic or teratogenic effects were observed at the highest dietary dose administered, approximately 34 mg/kg/day. Thus, Methomyl does not appear to be teratogenic.

Mutagenic effects: In a number of assays (including Ames test, a reverse mutation assay, a recessive lethal assay, three DNA damage studies, an unscheduled DNA synthesis assay, and in vivo and in vitro cytogenetic assays), Methomyl was not mutagenic. There is no evidence that Methomyl is a mutagenic or genotoxic.

Carcinogenic effects: There was no evidence of carcinogenicity in either rats or dogs that ingested high doses of Methomyl in 2-year feeding studies. Methomyl was not carcinogenic in 22- and 24-month studies with rats fed doses of up to 20 mg/kg, nor in a two-year study with mice fed dietary doses of up to 93.4 mg/kg/day. The evidence suggests that Methomyl is not carcinogenic.

Organ toxicity: Lungs, skin, eyes, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, spleen, and blood-forming organs have been affected in various experiments, depending on route of entry, duration of exposure, and dosage.

Fate in humans and animals: Methomyl is quickly absorbed through the skin, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract and are broken down in the liver. Breakdown products are readily excreted via respiration and urine. Although they do not appear to accumulate in any particular body tissue, they may alter many other enzymes besides the cholinesterases.

section 12 - Ecological Information: 

Effects on birds: Methomyl is highly toxic to birds. The acute oral LD50 in bobwhite quail is 24.2 mg/kg. The oral LD50 of Methomyl is 28 mg/kg in hens. All deaths occurred within ten minutes of dosing. The clinical signs of toxicity included tearing of the eyes, salivation, occasional convulsions, and respiratory disorders. In Japanese quail, the LD50 is 34 mg/kg. The LD50 of a 90% pure formulation is 15.9 mg/kg in eight-month-old mallards, and 15.4 mg/kg in three- to four-month-old male pheasants. The LD50 for starlings is 42 mg/kg and for red winged blackbirds is 10 mg/kg.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Methomyl is moderately to highly toxic to fish and highly toxic to aquatic invertebrates. The 96-hour LC50 in rainbow trout for a liquid formulation of Methomyl is 3.4 mg/L and for bluegill sunfish is 0.8 mg/L. The 48-hour LC50 for Daphnia magna (a small, freshwater crustacean) is 0.0287 mg/L. A 28-day fish residue study indicated that Methomyl did not accumulate in fish tissue. Methomyl is unlikely to bioconcentrate in aquatic systems.

Effects on other organisms: Methomyl is highly toxic to bees both by direct contact and through ingestion. The LD50 for a 90% pure formulation of Methomyl is 11.0 to 22.0 mg/kg in mule deer. Symptoms of acute poisoning in these animals included drowsiness, drooling, diarrhoea, and tremors.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Methomyl has low persistence in the soil environment, with a reported half-life of approximately 14 days. Because of its high solubility in water, and low affinity for soil binding Methomyl may have potential for groundwater contamination. It is very mobile in sandy loam and silty clay loam soils, but only slight leaching was observed in a silt loam and in a sandy soil. Methomyl is rapidly degraded by soil microbes. Methomyl residues are not expected to be found in treated soil after the growing season in which it is applied.

Breakdown in water: Aqueous solutions of Methomyl have been reported to decompose more rapidly on aeration, in sunlight, or in alkaline media. The estimated aqueous half-life for the insecticide is 6 days in surface water and over 25 weeks in groundwater. In one experiment, the hydrolysis half-lives of Methomyl in solutions at pHs of 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 were 54, 38, and 20 weeks respectively. In pure water, the hydrolysis half-life has been estimated to be 262 days.

Breakdown in vegetation: Following soil treatment, plants take up Methomyl through their roots and move it throughout the plant by a process called "translocation." When Methomyl is applied to plants, its residues are short- lived. After it is applied to leaves, it has a 3 to 5 day half-life. Less than 3% Methomyl remained in cabbage plants 1 week after they were given foliar treatment with the insecticide.
