POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
Effects from overexposure result
from either swallowing, or coming into contact with the skin or eyes. Symptoms
of overexposure include increased hypersensitivity to touch and sound, tremors
and convulsions. Contact with this product has rarely produced skin sensations
such as numbing, burning and tingling. These sensations are reversible and
usually subside within 12 hours.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED:
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation occurs and
persists, obtain medical attention.SKIN:
Wash with plenty of soap and water. Get medical attention if
irritation occurs and persists.INGESTION:
Rinse mouth with water. Dilute by giving 1 or 2 glasses
of water. Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person. See a medical doctor immediately.INHALATION:
Remove to fresh air. If breathing difficulty or
discomfort occurs and persists, obtain medical attention.
NOTES TO MEDICAL DOCTOR:
This product has low oral,
dermal and inhalation toxicity. It is moderately irritating to the skin and
minimally irritating to the eyes. Reversible skin sensations (paresthesia)
may occur and ordinary skin salves have been found useful in reducing
discomfort. Contains aromatic hydrocarbons that may produce a severe
pneumonitis if aspirated during vomiting. Consideration should be given
to gastric lavage with an endotracheal tube in place. Treatment is
otherwise controlled removal of exposure followed by symptomatic and

animals out of the area.
Keep material out of lakes, streams, ponds and sewer drains. Dike toconfine spill and absorb with a non-combustible absorbent such as clay,sand or soil. Vacuum, shovel or pump waste into a drum and labelcontents for disposal.
To clean and neutralize spill area, tools and equipment, wash with asuitable solution (i.e., bleach or caustic/soda ash and either ethylene glycolor an appropriate alcohol, i.e., methanol, ethanol or isopropanol). Followthis by washing with a strong soap and water solution. Absorb as above,any excess liquid and add to the drums of waste already collected. Repeat
if necessary. Dispose of drummed waste according to the method outlinedin Section 13, "Disposal Considerations".
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated
place. Do not use or store near heat, open flame or hot surfaces. Store in
original containers only. Store at temperatures above 40ƒF (5ƒC). If
crystals form, warm to room temperature 70ƒF (21ƒC) by room heating
only for 24-48 hours, and shake occasionally until crystals dissolve and
product appears uniform. Do not use external source of heat for warming
container. Keep out of reach of children and animals. Do not contaminate
other pesticides, fertilizers, water, food or feed by storage or disposal.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL
Use local exhaust at all process locations
where vapor or mist may be emitted. Ventilate all transport vehicles prior to
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
EYES AND FACE: For splash, mist or spray exposure, wear chemical
protective goggles or a face shield.
RESPIRATORY: For splash, mist or spray exposure wear, as a
minimum, a properly fitted half-face or full-face air-purifying respirator
with an organic vapor cartridge or canister with any R, P or HE prefilter
(approved by U.S. NIOSH/MSHA, EU CEN or comparable certification
organization). Respirator use and selection must be based on airborne
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Depending upon concentrations
encountered, wear coveralls or long-sleeved uniform and head covering.
For larger exposures as in the case of spills, wear full body cover barrier
suit, such as a PVC suit. Leather items - such as shoes, belts and
watchbands - that become contaminated should be removed and destroyed.
Launder all work clothing before reuse (separately from household
laundry).WORK HYGIENIC PRACTICES:
Clean water should be available
for washing in case of eye or skin contamination. Wash skin prior to
eating, drinking or using tobacco. Shower at the end of the workday.
GLOVES:Wear chemical protective gloves made of materials such as nitrile,neoprene or Viton¯ brand. Thoroughly wash the outside of gloves withsoap and water prior to removal. Inspect regularly for leaks.

ACUTE EFFECTS FROM OVEREXPOSURE:
This product has
low oral, dermal and inhalation toxicity. It is moderately irritating to the
skin and minimally irritating to the eyes. Experience to date indicates that
contact with this product has rarely produced skin sensations such as
numbing, burning or tingling. These sensations are reversible and usually
subside within 12 hours. Large toxic doses of the formulated product,
administered to laboratory animals, have produced central nervous system
effects with symptoms that include hypersensitivity to touch and sound,
tremors, and clonic convulsions. Overexposure to animals via inhalation
has also produced symptoms such as squinting eyes, irregular and rattling
breathing, and ataxia. Inhalation of aromatic hydrocarbon vapors may
cause dizziness, disturbances in vision, drowsiness, respiratory irritation,
and eye, skin and mucous membrane irritation. Vomiting after ingestion of
this product may cause aspiration of aromatic hydrocarbons into the lungs
which may result in fatal pulmonary edema.CHRONIC EFFECTS FROM OVEREXPOSURE:
available for the formulation. In studies with laboratory animals,
permethrin did not cause reproductive toxicity or teratogenicity. Analysis
of chronic feeding studies in both mice and rats with permethrin resulted
in the conclusion that permethrin's potential for induction of oncogenicity
in experimental animals is low and that the likelihood of oncogenic effects
in humans is nonexistent or extremely low. Long-term feeding studies in
animals resulted in increased liver and kidney weights, induction of the
liver microsomal drug metabolizing enzyme system and histopathological
changes in the lungs and liver. An overall absence of genotoxicity has
been demonstrated in mutagenicity testing with permethrin. Chronic
exposure to aromatic hydrocarbons may cause headaches, dizziness, loss
of sensations or feelings (such as numbness), and liver and kidney

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Unless otherwise indicated, the data presented below are for the active ingredient.
In soil, permethrin is stable over a
wide range of pH values. When applied at agricultural use rates,
permethrin has a moderate rate of degradation in soil. At termiticidal use
rates, permethrin degrades at a slower rate which is governed by soil
characteristics. Due to its high affinity for organic matter (Koc = 86,000),
there is little potential for movement in soil or entry into ground water.
Permethrin has a Log Pow of 6.1, but a low potential to bioconcentrate
(BCF = 500) due to the ease with which it is metabolized.ECOTOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION:
Permethrin is highly
toxic to fish (LC50 = 0.5 µg/L to 315 µg/L) and aquatic arthropods (LC50
= 0.02 µg/L to 7.6 µg/L). Marine species are often more sensitive than the
freshwater species. Bacteria, algae, mollusks and amphibians are much
more tolerant of permethrin than the fish and arthropods. Care should be
taken to avoid contamination of the aquatic environment. Permethrin is
slightly toxic to birds and oral LD50 values are greater than 3600 mg/kg.
Longer dietary studies showed that concentrations of up to 500 ppm in the
diet had no effect on bird reproduction.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Open dumping or burning of this material or
its packaging is prohibited. If spilled material cannot be disposed of by use
according to label instructions, an acceptable method of disposal is to
incinerate in accordance with local, state and national environmental laws,
rules, standards and regulations. However, because acceptable methods of
disposal may vary by location and regulatory requirements may change,
the appropriate agencies should be contacted prior to disposal.EMPTY CONTAINER:
Non-returnable containers which held this
material should be cleaned, prior to disposal, by triple rinsing. Containers
which held this material may be cleaned by being triple-rinsed, and
recycled, with the rinsate being incinerated. Do not cut or weld metal
containers. Vapors that form may create an explosion hazard.
