3. Science Findings
Summary Science Statement :
Fluvalinate, a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide/acaricide, has moderate
to low ao.ite mammalian toxicity except that the fonnulated products are

subchronic and chronic toxicity data that denonstrate no significant
adverse effects.
Fluvalinate is slightly toxic to birds and highly toxic to some aquatic
organisms. Additional studies on ecological effects of fluvalinate are

degrade in soil with a half—life

Environa ntal Characterisitics (continued):
6. Environnental Fate arEl Surface arEl Gro.ind Water
Contamination Concerns: Data submitted indicate that parent
fluvalinate has little p. tential to
leach. Major netabolites do have
potential to leach in some soils.
Low application rates, usually below
0.1 lb. a.i./acre will tend to decrease
the potential for ground and surface
water contanination.
7. Exposure of Humans and Nontarget Organisns to
Chanical or Degralaces: Fluvalinate products are classified
for restricted use. Minimal exposure
to humans is anticipated from use.
Additional data are needed to fully
assess the erwirornental fate and
ecological effects from fluvalinate.

The established Acceptabale Daily lntäce (ADI) for fluvalinate
is 0.01 mg/kg/day based on a 2—year rat feeding study and a
100 fold safety factor. The Maximum Permissible Intake (MPI)
has been calailated to 0.6 mg/kg/day for a 60 kg person. Based
on the established tolerances for residues of fluvalnate as
cited under 40 CFR 180.427 and 21 CFR 561.437, the Theoretical
Maximum Residue Concentration (ThRC) is 0.0504 mg/day for a
1.5 kg food diet for a 60 kg person. The TMRC is 8.40 % of the
C. Reported Pesticide Incidents : Several.
Caused general complaints in nun rous rkers, such as:
1. transient coughing, sneezing and throat irritation;
2. itching, burning sensation mi the anus and/or face with
or without a rash, blisters and desquaimtion;
3. oailar irritation; and
4. headache and/or nausea.
4. Summary of Regulatory Position and Rationale
Fluvalinate, formulat 1 as a fl able concentrate aid an
emulsifiable concentrate, is registered for use on nonbearing
fruit and nit trees and vines, turf, certain crc s gr zn for
planting seed, and cotton. Because of toxicity to fish and
aquatic iiwertebrates, precautionary labeling (including
endangered species identification) is required to rn against
contan.ination ct bodies of ‘ater with iroducts containing
fluvalinate and restricted use classification is required.
The coixlititonal. r istration for fluvalinate is issLed for
a period ending August 31, 1989.
