Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS EYES: This substance may cause moderate eye irritation. SKIN: This substance is not expected to cause skin irritation and is only slightly toxic if absorbed through the skin. See Toxicological Information, section 11. INGESTION: This substance is slightly toxic to internal organs if swallowed. The degree of injury will depend on the amount absorbed from the gut. INHALATION: Overexposure to the spray mist may be irritating to the respiratory tract. If inhaled, this substance is considered practically non-toxic to internal organs.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS NEUROTOXICITY: Bifenthrin has not been associated with delayed peripheral neuropathy. Overexposure to pyrethroids results in a transient disruption in the depolarization of nerve membranes by interfering with the closing of the sodium channels.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS CARCINOGENICITY : Mouse lifetime feeding study - high dose males - demonstrated an increase in urinary bladder hemangiopericytomas. There was no evidence of increased tumors in the other male or female mice dose levels. The carcinogen no observed effect level (NOEL) for male and female mice was 75 and 90 mg/kg/dy, respectively. Rat lifetime feeding study - no findings of tumors. The rat NOEL was 10 mg/kg/dy. EPA classified bifenthrin - Group C carcinogen.
First Aid: From MSDS EYES: IF IN EYES: Flush eyes with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. SKIN: IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation persists. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: In case of medical emergencies involving this product, call day or night, 1-800-225-2883.

Handling: From MSDS GENERAL PROCEDURES: Store in cool dry place, preferably in a locked storage area and avoid excess heat. Keep pesticide in original container. ENVIRONMENTAL DATA: In soil, bifenthrin is stable over a wide pH range and degrades at a slow rate which is governed by soil characteristics. Bifenthrin will also persist in aquatic sediments. Bifenthrin has a high Log POW (>6.0), a high affinity for organic matter, and is not mobile in soil. Therefore, there is little potential for movement into ground water. There is the potential for bifenthrin to bioconcentrate (BCF = 11,750). ECOTOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION: Bifenthrin is highly toxic to fish and aquatic arthropods and LC50 values range from 0.0038ug/L to 17.8 ug/L. In general, the aquatic arthropods are the most sensitive species. Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the aquatic environment. Bifenthrin had no effect on mollusks at its limit of water solubility. Bifenthrin is only slightly toxic to both waterfowl and upland game birds (LD50 values range from 1800 mg/kg to >2150 mg/kg).
Disposal: From MSDS The Solaris Group is committed to responsible environmental practices and recommends that all of the product be used up, carefully following all label directions and precautions. If necessary to dispose of partially filled product container, the
