F.p.: >100 °C (DIN 51758); 172 °C (Pensky-Martens closed cup, 1x105 Pa).
Biochemistry: Cholinesterase inhibitor.
Mode of action: Insecticide and acaricide with respiratory, contact, and stomach action. Gives rapid knockdown.
Uses: Control of household and public health insect pests, e.g. flies, mosquitoes, cockroaches, bedbugs, ants, etc.; stored-product pests in warehouses, storerooms, etc.; flies and midges in animal houses; sciarid and phorid flies in mushrooms; sucking and chewing insects, and spider mites in a wide range of crops, including fruit, vines, vegetables, ornamentals, tea, rice, cotton, hops, glasshouse crops, etc. Also used as a veterinary anthelmintic.
Phytotoxicity: Non-phytotoxic when used as directed, except to some varieties of chrysanthemum.
Formulation types: AE; EC; GR; HN; KN; OL; SL; Impregnated strip.
Compatibility: Incompatible with alkaline materials, chinomethionat, and dichlofluanid.
Oral: Acute oral LD50 for rats c. 50 mg/kg.
Skin and eye: Acute percutaneous LD50 for rats c. 90 mg/kg. Slight skin and eye irritant (rabbits).
Inhalation: LC50 (4 h) for rats 340 mg/m3; (1 h) for rats 455 mg/m3.
NOEL: (2 y) for rats 10 mg/kg diet.
ADI: 0.004 mg/kg b.w.

Algae: EC50 (5 d) for Scenedesmus subspicatus 52.8 mg/l.
Bees: Acute oral LD50 0.29 ug/bee.
Animals: In mammals, following oral administration, rapidly degraded in the liver by hydrolysis and O-demethylation, with a half-life of c. 25 minutes.
Plants: Rapidly decomposed in plants.
Soil/Environment: Non-persistent in the environment, with rapid decomposition in the atmosphere. Undergoes hydrolysis in damp media, with the formation of phosphoric acid and CO2. But G. Keller et al. say soil metabolites are dichloroethanol, dichloroacetic acid and dichloroacetaldehyde; DT50 c. 10 h. Half-lives <1 d in biologically active soils and water systems.
