Mode of action Non-systemic insecticide and acaricide with contact and stomach action. Uses Control of a wide range of pests, including those resistant to organochlorine, organophosphorus, and carbamate insecticides. Uses include control of chewing, sucking, and boring insects (particularly Lepidoptera, Diptera, Orthoptera, Hemiptera, and Coleoptera) in fruit, vines, olives, hops, nuts, vegetables, cucurbits, cotton, oilseed rape, sunflowers, alfalfa, cereals, maize, sorghum, potatoes, beet, peanuts, soya beans, tobacco, sugar cane, ornamentals, forestry, and on non-crop land. Used for control of flying and crawling insects in public health situations and in animal houses. Also used as an animal ectoparasiticide. Formulation types EC; UL; SC; WP.

Product analysis of pyrethroids reviewed by E. Papadopoulou-Mourkidou in Comp. Analyt. Profiles. By hplc (idem, ibid.; E. Papadopoulou-Mourkidou, Anal. Methods Pestic. Plant Growth Regul., 1988, 16, 31; 1984, 13, 121) or by glc (CIPAC Handbook, 1988, D, 100; ibid., 1995, G, 68-70). Residues determined by glc with ECD (ibid.; A. Ambrus et al., J. Assoc. Off. Anal. Chem., 1981, 64, 733; Man. Pestic. Residue Anal., 1987, I, 6, S19; Anal. Methods Residues Pestic., 1988, Part I, M11). Details available from Sumitomo Chemical Co.

Reviews FAO/WHO 47 (see part 2 of the Bibliography). See also A. J. Gray & D. M. Soderlund, Chapt. 5 in "Insecticides". IARC ref. 53 class 3 Oral Acute oral LD50 for rats 451 mg/kg. Skin and eye Acute percutaneous LD50 for rabbits 1000-3200, rats >5000 mg/kg. Slightly irritating to skin and eyes (rabbits). Inhalation LC50 for rats >101 mg/m3. NOEL (2 y) for rats 250 mg/kg diet. ADI (JMPR) 0.02 mg/kg b.w. [1986]. Toxicity class WHO (a.i.) II; EPA (formulation) II

Birds Acute oral LD50 for domestic fowl >1600, mallard ducks 9932 mg/kg. Dietary LC50 for quail >10 000, mallard ducks 5500 mg/kg. Fish LC50 (96 h) for rainbow trout 0.0036 mg/l. Bees Toxic to bees. Contact LD50 0.23 mg/bee.

EHC 95 (WHO, 1990). EHC 95 cites rapid degradation and decomposition, reduced toxicity of its degradation products, and absence of leaching in soil. Although laboratory tests show high toxicity for fish and bees, these effects are markedly reduced under field conditions because of adsorption to sediments, and the compound's strong repellent effect. The report concludes that risks to the environment are unlikely when it is applied as recommended. Animals In mammals, following oral administration, fenvalerate is rapidly metabolised. Up to 96% is excreted in the faeces within 6-14 days. For a study of the metabolism of fenvalerate in the laying hen, see J. Agric. Food Chem., 1989, 37, 190. Plants In plants, fenvalerate is split into two parts by cleavage of the ether group, followed by further hydroxylation in the 2- and 4- positions of the phenoxy ring, and hydrolysis of the nitrile group to amide and carboxyl groups. The majority of the acids and phenols thus formed are converted into glucosides. Soil/Environment In aqueous media, the ester bond is hydrolysed. In light, decarboxylation occurs, with recombination of the cleaved moieties (R. L. Holmstead et al., J. Agric. Food Chem., 1977, 25, 56-58). DT50 in soil c. 75-80 d.
