Part Description

LP19562-5   Dimethoate
Dimethoate is a colorless, crystalline solid cholinesterase inhibitor that kills insects and mites systemically or on contact. It is effective against aphids, thrips, planthoppers, whiteflies, ornamental plants, alfalfa, apples, corn, grapefruit, grapes, lemons, melons, oranges, pears, pecans, safflower, sorghum, soybeans, tangerines, tobacco, tomatoes, watermelons, wheat and other vegetables. Dimethoate is also sprayed onto farm buildings to eradicate house flies and used on livestock against botflies. Demethoate is extremely toxic if inhaled, ingested or absorbed through the skin. Symptoms of inhalation exposure include bloody or runny nose, coughing, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, and wheezing. Extreme exposure will lead to incoordination, slurred speech, loss of reflexes, weakness, fatigue, involuntary muscle contractions, twitching, tremors of the tongue or eyelids, and eventual paralysis of the extremities and respiratory muscles. Dimethoate is a possible human teratogen and carcinogen. It is dangerously poisonous to birds, fish, aquatic invertebrates, and honey bees. Dimethoate is rapidly broken down in the environment and in sewage treatment plants.[http://pmep.cce.cornell.edu/profiles/extoxnet/dienochlor-glyphosate/dimethoate-ext.html] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
