Insecticide methamidophos is less soluble in water and soluble in alcohols. And it has strong contact and stomach poisoning. Pure product is white needle-like crystal and the industrial product is colorless viscous liquid and needle-like crystal can be precipitated after cooling. Compared with malathion, it has a better prevention effect on aphids, mites, rice leafhoppers and planthoppers. Besides that, it is also suitable for control and prevention of soil pests such as bollworms, armyworms, yellow stem borer, rice leaffolder insects, mole crickets and grubs. As a broad-spectrum insecticide, it also has good poisoning effect on some drug-resistant pests. Its mechanism is to inhibit the activity of cholinesterase and result in neurophysiological dysfunction.

Because of high toxicity, insecticide methamidophos can't be used on short growing crops or food safety issues such as residue could emerge. For storage and transportation, it shall not be upside down or crashed and moisture-proof sunscreen and good ventilation should be ensured. It is strongly prohibited for touch with fire and mix with strong acid and alkaline pesticides. As well as that, the remaining drug should be placed in safe and cool place.

It has an excellent stability and it is stable at room temperature but not stable for light. The freezing point of this product is 4℃ and the melting point is 11℃.
  • Insecticide Carbofuran Because of its specific structure, insecticide carbofuran can irreversibly combine with cholinesterase so it is highly toxic to higher animals, such as birds. Specifically, acute oral LD50 for rats is 8 to 14 mg/kg, for dog the value is19 mg/kg. But this product is not toxic for bees. Due to high toxicity, it can't be used as spray or mixed together with swep. In the event of poisoning, atropine but rather pralidoxime should be used.
