  • Permethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid. Like most members of this family of insecticides, it
    has four isomers, molecules made up of the same atoms with different three-dimensional structures.

  • Permethrin is a common synthetic chemical, widely used as an insecticide, acaricide, and insect repellent. It belongs to the family of synthetic chemicals called pyrethroids and functions as a neurotoxin, affecting neuron membranes by prolonging sodium channel activation.

  • Technical permethrin ranges from a colorless crystal to a yellow or brown viscous liquid.

  • It is an ester of the dichloro analogue of chrysanthemic acid, chemically identified as (3-phenoxyphenyl)methyl-(±)- cis-trans-3(2,2-dichloroethyenyl)-2, 2dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylate.

  • Permethrin was first registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) in 1979, and was re-registered in 2006.

  • Permethrin is a broad-spectrum pyrethroid insecticide. It is available in dusts, emulsifiable concentrates, smokes, ULV concentrates, and wettable-powder formulations.

  • Permethrin is used to kill pest in-sects in agriculture, home pest control, forestry, and in public health programs, including head lice control.

  • Permethrin is not phytotoxic, or poisonous, to most plants when it is used as directed.

  • Permethrin is a useful synthetic insecticide that has proven effective in a number of environmental and clinical settings. It appears to be more effective than DEET in protecting individuals from tick bites.

  • Permethrin can affect insects if they eat it or touch it. Permethrin affects the nervous system in insects, causing muscle spasms, paralysis and death.

  • Permethrin can be effective by contact or ingestion and also acts as a mild repellent.

  • Permethrin is highly toxic to marine/estuarine, freshwater fish and other aquatic organisms

  • Permethrin is more toxic to insects than it is to people and dogs.This is because insects can’t break it down as quickly as people and dogs.

  • If permethrin is applied to plants, it may stay on the leaves for between 1 and 3 weeks. Scientists applied permethrin to soil and then planted sugar beets, wheat, lettuce and cotton in the soil. Scientists found trace amounts of the permethrin residue in the edible parts of the plants at 30 and 120 days after planting.

  • The widely-used synthetic insecticide permethrin dramatically reduces testosterone levels and sperm counts in adult male mice exposed to it for six weeks.

  • Permethrin is a viscous liquid at room temperature; it does not dissociate in water and has extremely low water solubility and volatility. It is stable to hydrolysis at pH4–7 but is slowly hydrolysed at pH 9.

  • Permethrin impurities were determined by capillary GC with FID detection.

  • Permethrin only decomposes at extremely high temperature and, although photochemical degradation was observed in
    laboratory studies, this was stated by Sumitomo to be of negligible significance in the field.

  • Permethrin was classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as “not
    classifiable as to its carcinogenicity
    to humans” in 1991.The U.S. EPA
    decided that permethrin was “likely to be carcinogenic to humans” if it was eaten.

  • In the U.S., al-most 70 percent of the permethrin used in agriculture is used on corn, wheat, and alfalfa.
