  • Fenthion (O,O-dimethyl O-4-methylthio-mtolylphosphorothioate ) is a broad spectrum organophosphorus (OP) insecticide.

  • Fenthion is used to control pest insects in agricultural, commercial and domestic situations and external parasites on cattle.

  • It was used extensively preharvest on sugar cane, rice, field corn, beets, pome and stone fruits, citrus fruits, pistachio, cotton, olives, coffee, cocoa, vegetables, and vines.

  • It is effective as an insecticide, it is also moderately toxic to mammals, and highly toxic to birds.

  • Based on its high toxicity to birds, fenthion is used in various parts of the world for weaver bird control.

  • Fenthion is moderately toxic via the oral route, with reported oral LD50 values of 180 to 298 mg/kg in rats, 150 mg/kg in rabbits, and 88 to 145 mg/kg in mice.

  • In animals, fenthion is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream through the digestive tract, lungs, and skin, and is systemically distributed. It is eliminated through the urine and the feces. A single dose of the insecticide has prolonged action, suggesting that much of it is stored in body fat and later released for metabolism.

  • Fenthion is used as a paint strip 5 cm wide to 10 per cent of favoured roost areas of pigeons, starlings, sparrows and the Indian mynah in industrial and commercial premises.

  • Fenthion is of moderate persistence in soil, with an average field half-life of 34 days under most conditions . In soil, residues of fenthion may persist for approximately 4 to 6 weeks. It adsorbs fairly strongly to soil particles, and so is not likely to move (or leach) through the soil.

  • In one study of its persistence in water, 50% of applied fenthion remained in river water 2 weeks later, while 10% remained after 4 weeks. It is more rapidly degraded under alkaline conditions.

  • EPA has made fenthion a restricted use pesticide, for use only by certified applicators or those under their supervision, and has imposed a 24- hour reentry period for unprotected workers in treated ornamentals.
