- cyhalothrin is the broad-spectrum pyrethroid that is extensively used in the formulation of various brand name pesticides like Scimitar Warrior Karate Icon Demand and Matador (CDPR 2006).
Shahzadi and her co researchers identified and quantified the insecticide imidacloprid, pyrethroid (bifenthrin, deltamethrin and lambda cyhalothrin), and OPP (chlorpyrifos) in buffalo, sheep, cow, goat and camel milk.
Pathway and kinetics of cyhalothrin biodegradation by Bacillus thuringiensisstrain ZS-19.
Data evaluation record: Cyhalothrin: Chronic toxicity study in rats.
Lambda-cyhalothrin, the insecticide used for IRS in these areas by the Kenyan Ministry of Health, was used in Mozambique for IRS starting in 1993, but resistance developed to such an extent that lambda cyhalothrin was replaced by bendiocarb in 2000.
Richard further informed the court that there has never been a death recorded as a result of cyhalothrin pesticide since it has low toxins to affect humans.
Only in the case of Cyhalothrin a higher standard deviation than the others was found, however, the value is within the limits.
In raw eggplant fruit the residues were in the order of cyhalothrin (1.40+-0.15 mg kg-1) greater than cypermethrin (1.13+-0.01 mg kg-1) greater than deltamethrin (0.65+-0.1 mg kg-1), whereas in raw okra fruit these were in the order of cypermethrin (1.17+-0.1 mg kg-1) greater than deltamethrin (1.08+-0.12 mg kg-1) greater than cyhalothrin (0.48+-0.03 mg kg-1).
All the evaluated populations showed susceptibility to malathion and deltamethrin, five to fenitothrion, four to propoxur and two to lambda- cyhalothrin. All of them expressed loss of susceptibility to DDT.
