For clothianidin, hazard mitigation includes establishing the maximum amount of the chemical that can be used (e.g. 8 0 obj Last year, Valent agreed to take over Arysta's brands in the US crop and ornamental sectors, while both companies would continue to market the insecticide for use on turf . <> The compound acts agonistically on insect nicotinic acetylcholine receptors located in the central nervous system. [21][22][23][24][25][26], In the 2003 United States EPA assessment report it was stated that clothianidin should not present a direct acute or chronic risk to freshwater and estuarine/marine fish, or a risk to terrestrial or aquatic vascular and nonvascular plants. Honey bees are thought to possibly be affected by such chemicals, which are known to work their way through the plant up into the flowers and leave residues in the nectar and pollen that bees forage on. XM�g�P�x]�A����n Similar to thiamethoxam and imidacloprid, it is a neonicotinoid. It has helped prevent insect pests build up resistance to organophosphate and pyrethroid pesticides. ) ��7t�!��4�O�kwC�Q��J/0S 5͇t�!���w� ��c���퐍? Clothianidin is Bayer’s successor product to imidacloprid, which recently went off patent. The neonicotinoid insecticides include imidacloprid, acetamiprid, dinotefuran, thiamethoxam, and clothianidin. For corn, choose from the broad protection of the Poncho® seed treatment family to find the right clothianidin application rate for your operation. [50] Studies submitted by Bayer AG to USEPA have provided some useful information about clothianidin's potential long-term effects on honey bees but outstanding questions remain. *&5&9@��9.���E7eX1j]� &y�'3BEt7W���:�ve��f�����YLũA�8&� endstream Clothianidin belongs to the chemical class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids or chloronicotinyls, which interfere with the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at the postsynaptic membrane. <> �7��.β����V:��(��E�?����&��yOEބ7�&Z�M�M�7�$��/`��6rE����Mv�I�H��'�AP�Ӟ~� Quick overview Arena 0.25 G Granular Clothianidin Insecticide Provides the best control and the longest-lasting residual out there. Regulatory authorities describe the toxicological database for clothianidin as "extensive", and many studies have been reviewed to support registrations around the globe for this chemical. particularly suspect class of insecticides, especially in combination with the dozens of other pesticides found in honeybee hives. 15 0 obj ��V�hU���ўPK�з{Z(�� <>/ExtGState<>/XObject<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageB/ImageC/ImageI] >>/MediaBox[ 0 0 595.32 842.04] /Contents 4 0 R/Group<>/Tabs/S/StructParents 0>> USE PATTERNS AND FORMULATIONS Application Sites: Clothianidin is registered for seed treatm ent use on corn and canola. Clothianidin 100 microg/mL in Acetonitrile. Toxicity varies depending on whether the exposure occurs on a short-term (acute) or long-term (chronic) basis. 8'g�4ݶ-r���x-�⊼� |v}�3���3�&�y� �$��on^�W�����Ƀ)�'����׸"V��� When applied as directed, CLOTHIANIDIN INSECTICIDE provides residual insect control. Clothianidin and other neonicotinoids act on the central nervous system of insects as an agonist of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that stimulates nAChR, targeting the same receptor site (AChR) and activating post-synaptic acetylcholine receptors but not inhibiting AChE. Bees disappeared at the level of 1 ng for clothianidin, while we could register the first bee losses for imidacloprid at doses exceeding 3 ng. Click to … Laboratory and field testing revealed that clothianidin shows relatively low toxicity to many test species but is highly or very highly toxic to others. ent] clothianidin + 8 g a.i. In pneumatic drilling machines, seeds are sucked in, causing the erosion of fragments of the insecticide shell, which are then expelled with a current of air. Clothianidin users are also required to monitor the weather and not use the chemical or seeds treated with it on windy days or when rain is forecast. 11 0 obj "[7], Clothianidin is authorized for spray, dust, soil drench (for uptake via plant roots), injectable liquid (into tree limbs and trunks, sugar cane stalks etc. Rabbits showed little to no skin or eye irritation when exposed to clothianidin, and the skin of guinea pigs was not sensitized by it. Don’t settle for insecticides that give up on control early. beta-cyfluthrin/100,000 seeds) and Cruiser Tef (60 g a.i. Seed treatment uses of clothianidin, corn in particular, have been revoked or suspended in Germany, Italy and Slovenia. [11], Honey bees pollinate crops responsible for about a third of the human diet; about $224 billion worth of crops worldwide. These reports prompted a formal peer review by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which stated in January 2013 that neonicotinoids, including clothianidin, pose an unacceptably high risk to bees, and that the industry-sponsored science upon which regulatory agencies' claims of safety have relied on may be flawed and contain several data gaps not previously considered. 210880 -92-5).
