Broflanilide (Ref: MCI-8007)
Last updated: 18/08/2021
(Also known as: BAS 450 I)

SUMMARY
Broflanilide is an insecticide that is used to control chewing pests. It has a low aqueous solubility and is not considered to be highly volatile. In some situtions it may be very persistent in soil and in water systems. Whilst it is highly toxic to honeybees, It generally tends to have a low to moderate toxiciity to most other fauna and flora. It has a low oral mammalian toxicity snd no other human health concerns have been identified.
