Bibliographic information Aug. 1987, No.8, p.48-50. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract Animal experiments to study the toxicological characteristics of pyrethroids - broad-spectrum insecticides - enabled Tentative Safe Exposure Levels to be established for preparations containing decamethrin (0.1mg/m3), fenvalerate (0.2mg/m3), cipermethrin (0.3mg/m3) and permethrin (0.5mg/m3); a TSEL of 0.3mg/m3 was set for the permethrin-containing product Anometrin-N. The use of personal protective equipment is necessary to protect the skin and mucosae from contact with cyanide-containing pyrethroids.
