The acute oral LD50 in male rats ranged from 128 mg/kg to greater than 5,000 mg/kg depending on the carrier and conditions of the study.The acute percutaneous LD50 for rats was reported to be greater than 2,000 mg/kg. The acute dermal LD50 for rabbits was greater than 2,000 mg/kg. No skin irritation and slight eye irritation were reported.


Deltamethrin is a pyrethroid insecticide that kills insects on contact and through digestion. It is used to control apple and pear suckers, plum fruit moth, caterpillars on brassicas, pea moth, aphids (apples, plums, hops), winter moth (apples and plums), codling and tortrix moths (apples). Control of aphids, mealy bugs, scale insects, and whitefly on glasshouse cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, potted plants, and ornamentals. There are no known incompatibilities with other common insecticides and fungicides.
