Introduction: Azamethiphos is an organophosphate used as an insecticide and as an antiparasitic agent for veterinary use. It does not have EU approval for use. It is highly soluble in water, volatile and not expected to leach to groundwater. Not a great deal is known about its environmental persistence. It is modertaley toxic to mammals and not expected to bioaccumulate. It is a mutagen, neurotoxicant and an acetyl cholinesterase inhibitor. Azamethiphos is highly toxic to birds and aquatic invertebrates and moderately toxic to fish.

Azamethiphos is soluble in water (1.1 g/L ) and has a low octanol-water partition coefficient (logKow=1.05). The logKow is the logarithm of the octanol-water partition coefficient. Consequently, azamethiphos is likely to remain in the aqueous phase on entering the environment. It is unlikely to accumulate in tissue or in sediment. Azamethiphos decomposes by hydrolysis in natural water with a half-life of 8.9 days. Dispersion studies indicated that after release of an experimental treatment (200 µg/L), the concentration of azamethiphos was below detection (0.1 µg/L) in a short period of time. It was not detected below 10 m depth and it was suggested that it is unlikely that azamethiphos would accumulate in sediment. The bioaccumulation of azamethiphos is low and depletion of total azamethiphos is rapid and the pre-marketing withdrawal time is 24 h.

Usage: Azamethiphos was developed by Ciba-Geigy. Azamethiphos is a residual organophoshorus insecticide for fly control. Also has some applications in fish farming.

Application: Azamethiphos is a broad-spectrum insecticide. Mode of action Insecticide with contact and stomach action. Gives rapid knockdown, and has good residual activity. Uses It controls cockroaches, various beetles, bugs, spiders and other arthropodes. It is can be used to kill flies in meadow. It has no toxicity against mammals, It is particularly efficacious against nuisance flies.
