Permethrin Facts EPA

Permethrin is considered a Reproductive Toxin. Linda M. Frazier, MD, MPH & Marvin L. Hage, MD, University of Ohio. Reproductive Hazards of the Workplace.

Permethrin is highly toxic to aquatic organisms.

Permethrin is considered a neurotoxin that has more impact on children than adults. It is dangerous to bees and some aquatic species. Some studies suggest the possibility of additional serious health effects. Cox, C. (1998). Insecticide Factsheet: Permethrin. Journal of Pesticide Reform, 18 (2), 14-20.

Permethrin Harms Monarch Butterflies. Oberhauser, K.S., Brinda, S.J., Weaver, S., Moon, R.D., Manweiler, S.A., & Read, N. (2006). Growth and Survival of Monarch Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Danaidae) After Exposure to Permethrin Barrier Treatments. Environ. Entomol. 35(6): 1626-1634.


Adequate long-term safety studies are not available.

Both the U.S. EPA and nonprofit organizations document the possibility that Btk may lead to food poisoning

The Safety to Humans of Bacillus thuringiensis Insecticidal Sprays: A Reassessment- EPA

The government of New Zealand conducted aerial spraying of Bacillus Thuringiensis kurstaki (Btk) for a Moth that was considered a Risk to Agriculture. New Zealand Citizens reported a lack of government response to their safety concerns. They reported over 580 adverse health effects. NZ Citizens conducted A People's Inquiry into the Spraying Program with a Panel of Experts.

EPA Rubber stamps approval for o many pesticides

NOSB TAP Review Compiled by OMRI

The characteristics of spinosad suggest that the exposure and risks from spinosad in drinking water are analogous for acute and chronic exposures

" An EPA factsheet issued February 1997 classifies spinosad as Category III due to the acute dermal LD50 in rabbit of >2000 mg/kg. For all other acute toxicological categories it is listed as Category IV. The Dow MSDS issued in 2001 shows EPA classification as Category IV even for dermal toxicity."
