Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. For Outdoor residential use only.. This pesticide is toxic to fish and wildlife. Do not apply directly to water. This pesticide is toxic to bees exposed to direct application. Do not apply near fish pools, ponds, streams or lakes. Food utensils such as teaspoons or measuring cups should not be used for food purposes after use with insecticides. Keep children and pets off treated areas until product is worked into the soil, watered, and the treated areas have dried completely. Wear rubber gloves when handling. Poisoning may occur as a result of exposure. May be fatal if swallowed. Avoid breathing dust. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Do not apply near fish pools, ponds, streams or lakes. Food utensils such as teaspoons or measuring cups should not be used for food purposes after use with insecticides. Wear rubber gloves when handling. Children and pets may re-enter after the treated area has been watered and allowed to dry.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:

Organophosphate insecticide--Cholinesterase inhibitor; may be fatal if swallowed.

ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation, Skin contact, Eye contact

ACUTE EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE Exposure during the labeled use of this product is expected to be minimal. Consumers should refer to the packaging label for proper handling procedures. However, sufficient exposure to disulfoton, the active ingredient in this product, may result in systemic intoxication due to inhibition of the enzyme cholinesterase. The sequence of development of systemic effects varies with the route of entry, and the onset of symptoms may be delayed up to 12 hours. First symptoms of poisoning may be nausea, increased salivation, lacrimation, blurred vision and constricted pupils. Other symptoms of systemic poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, dizziness and sweating. After inhalation, respiratory symptoms like tightness of chest, wheezing, and laryngeal spasms, may be pronounced at first. If the poisoning is severe, then symptoms of convulsions, low blood pressure, cardiac irregularities, loss of reflexes and coma may occur. In extreme cases, death may occur due to a combination of factors such as respiratory arrest, paralysis of respiratory muscles or intense bronchoconstrictions. Complete symptomatic recovery from sublethal poisoning usually occurs within one week once the source of exposure is completely removed. The fertilizer contained in this product may cause eye, skin or mucous membrane irritation. Ingestion may cause nausea. In addition, sufficient exposure to cyfluthrin may produce paresthesia (a tingling or burning sensation on the surface of the skin). This is a frequently reported symptom associated with sufficient dermal exposure to alpha-cyano (or Type II) synthetic pyrethroids and normally subsided without treatment within 24 hours. The onset of these symptoms usually occurs 2-12 hours after exposure. Mucous membrane irritation involving the nose, throat and upper respiratory tract may occur from inhalation of aerosols containing cyfluthrin. The primary component of this product, ammonium sulfate, can be irritating to the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: No specific medical conditions are known which may be aggravated by exposure to the active ingredient in this product. As with all materials which can cause upper respiratory tract irritation, persons with a history of asthma, emphysema or hyperactive airways disease may be more susceptible to a response at low concentration.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:

Cholinesterase inhibition sometimes persists for 2-6 weeks, thus repeated exposure to small amounts of this material may result in an unexpected cholinesterase depression causing symptoms such as malaise, weakness, and anorexia that resemble o
Carcinogenicity: This product is not listed by NTP, IARC or regulated as a carcinogen by OSHA.
First Aid: EYES: Hold eyelids open and flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention immediately.

SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persist.

INHALATION: If a person is overcome by excessive exposures to aerosols of this material, remove to fresh air or uncontaminated area. If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth. Get medical attention as soon as possible.

INGESTION: If ingestion is suspected, call a physician or poison control center. If medical assistance cannot be given immediately, drink large quantities of water. DO NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention. Avoid alcohol. Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: This product contains the organophosphorus insecticide disulfoton, a cholinesterase inhibitor. Cholinesterase inhibition results in stimulation of the central nervous system, the parasympathetic nervous system and the somatic motor nerves. If symptoms of organophosphate poisoning are present, the administration of atropine sulfate is indicated. Administer atropine sulfate in large, therapeutic doses. In mild cases, start treatment by giving 1-2 mg of atropine intravenously every 15 minutes until signs of atropinization appear (dry mouth, flushing, and dilated pupils if pupils were originally pinpoint). In severe cases, start treatment by giving 2-4 mg intravenously every 5-10 minutes until fully atropinized. Dosages for children should be appropriately reduced. 2-PAM is also antidotal and may be used in conjunction with atropine. Do not give morphine. Watch for pulmonary edema which may develop in serious cases of poisoning even after 24 hours. At first sign of pulmonary edema, place patient in oxygen tent and treat symptomatically.
