The odor threshold of heptachlor is 0.3 mg m−3 (20 ppb). Alternatively, these might arise directly by oxidative or hydrolytic elimination of chlorine atoms from the cyclopentane ring. Exposure to fipronil-treated deposits resulted in delayed toxicity (Hu, 2005; Saran and Rust, 2007). Get … Further chlorination of the feebly toxic chlordene, the Diels-Alder adduct of “hex” and cyclopentadiene, gave heptachlor, the dihydroheptachlor isomers (Table 96.3 and Figure 96.4), and the chlordane isomers (Figure 96.5). The difference was less or even reversed when the casein diet was fed ad libitum and weight gain was greater (Webb and Miranda, 1973). Since some of the newer termiticides are nonrepellent and actively kill foragers, the amount of termiticide applied and the extent of the coverage may be reduced. Chlordane emulsifiable concentrate 1.0 percent by weight 3. Chlordane was used in homes and for termite control. Either isomer might give heptachlor by dehydrochlorination and hence HE160 and all the metabolites arising therefrom. In the presence of NADPH, pig liver microsomes converted alpha-, beta-, and gamma-DH into a variety of hydroxylation products, which are illustrated for beta-DH in Figure 96.4. startxref The registered termiticides provided between 2.85 and 5.4 years' activity. 1. Microorganisms can degrade heptachlor by removing the allylic chlorine, either reductively or by hydrolysis, so that the degradation routes for chlordene can then be followed (Miles et al., 1969); in some soils, the production of 1-hydroxychlordene (1, Figure 96.4) is comparable to HE160 production. The Bhopal incident of massive methyl isocyanate exposure is an example of chronic chemical exposure. In 1988, the sale, It is important to discuss termite management options and maintenance requirements with your builder. Figure 96.6. The most common technique for treating termite infestations is the soil-applied barrier treatment. Wood treatments. Soil residual studies in Arizona found that insecticides degraded as follows: chlorpyrifos >imidacloprid = bifenthrin = permethrin = zeta-cypermethrin (Baker and Bellamy, 2006). Toxicities of Dihydroheptachlor and Chlordane Isomers to Housefly and Mouse. Alpha- and beta-DH were as toxic as heptachlor when synergized; synergized gamma-DH was four-fold less toxic than synergized alpha- and beta-DH and as toxic as cis-chlordane (Table 96.3). Housefly toxicity compared with dieldrin (1.0) by direct spray. Which are the effective chemicals used for anti-termite treatment? The nontoxic adduct of “hex” and cis-2-butene-1,4-diol, namely 5,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)-hexachloronorbornene-2-ene, is the precursor to which isobenzan, endosulfan (Figure 96.6), bromocyclen (Bromodan), and chlorbicyclen (Alodan) (Figure 96.7; 20 and 21, respectively) are related. Methyl isocyanate is not a pesticide but does have a chem-ical structure that is similar to some pesticides. Easy DIY termite monitoring, DIY termite eradication. Seven different organophosphate and pyrethroid termiticides were applied to two different soil types in Mississippi and soils were extracted and analyzed over 5 years (Jarratt et al., 2004). The hydroxylated metabolites appear to be detoxification products in mammals. Saran and Kamble (2008) found that the half-lives of bifenthrin, fipronil, and imidacloprid increased as the concentration applied to the soil increased and there was an inverse relationship between concentration applied and the time required to kill 50 and 90% of the termites. Fresh water microorganisms metabolize heptachlor to heptachlor epoxide and 1-hydroxychlordene. However, with the advent of the new slow-acting nonrepellent insecticides, the utility of these two study designs has come under closer scrutiny. In fact, the metabolites in rats include 1-exo,2-dichlorochlordene (1, Figure 96.5), oxychlordane (2), 1-exo-hydroxy-2-chlorochlordene (3), 1-exo-hydroxy-2-chloro-2,3-epoxychlordene (4), 1-exo-hydroxy, 2-endo-chlorodihydrochlordene (chlordene chlorohydrin), 1,2-trans-dihydroxydihydrochlordene, and the metabolites of heptachlor (Brimfield and Street, 1979; Brimfield et al., 1978; Tashiro and Matsumura, 1977). Heptachlor is a related chemical. The initial concentrations at both sites were two times higher than expected according to label directions. With the advent of the slow-acting nonrepellent chemistries, it was suggested that the insecticides were transferred horizontally through the colony providing area-wide effects and colony kill (Potter and Hillery, 2001). Older individuals are more severely affected and less likely to recover. The US EPA classified chlordane as a probable human carcinogen (Group B2) with an upper bound lifetime cancer potency of 0.35 per (mg kg−1 day−1). There was no evidence for epoxide formation from either cis- or trans-chlordane in houseflies, however. Both pesticides can remain in treated soils, in agricultural runoff water, and near factories where they were manufactured. The cumulative dose applied was 7500 μg of TCDD. (e.g. DDT is a colorless, crystalline solid with a weak chemical odor. Termidor – 8 years. Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole insecticide that is extremely toxic to subterranean termites, with LD50 values ranging from 0.2 to 2 ng/termite (Ibrahim et al., 2003; Saran and Rust, 2007; Yamaoka and Tsunoda, 2007). To meet F.H.A. 0000001881 00000 n The insecticidal activity of DDT was discovered by the Swiss scientist Paul Mueller in 1939, who was later awarded the Nobel Prize for this discovery. The authors suggest that as the concentration increases the adsorption coefficient decreases, increasing the amount of toxicant available to kill termites (Kamble and Saran, 2005). In particular, the formation in rats of oxychlordane (Figure 96.5), analogous to heptachlor epoxide and said to be more toxic than trans-chlordane (Street and Blau, 1972), is a bioactivation due to the unexpected formation of a stable epoxide in vivo, presumably following an enzymatic desaturation that introduced a 2,3-double bond. Since 1992, the use of heptachlor In simulated field studies, imidacloprid levels declined from 84.5 to 7.5 ppm in 6 months and the insecticidal activity of deposits down to 15 cm decreased dramatically after 9 months (Peterson, 2007). For nearly 50 years, the application of organochlorine insecticides such as chlordane, heptachlor, aldrin, and dieldrin to soil was the primary preconstruction treatment or remedial strategy to protect structures from subterranean termites. It was suggested that the use of nonrepellent slow-acting termiticides might make dogmatic mandatory full treatments of interior perimeter expansion joints and other indoor sites unnecessary (Potter and Hillery, 2002). The 2-OH-dihydrochlordene excreted by rats fed beta-DH (Korte, 1967) may arise in this way. Figure 96.4. Blood chemistries including hematologic, liver, and kidney function remained within normal limits. 5. Wayne R. Snodgrass, in Hayes' Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology (Third Edition), 2010. In the second type of chronic syndrome, insecticide exposure remains below that needed to cause symptoms; however, the individual experiences adverse effects with further intake. Heptachlor is applied as a soil treatment, as a seed treatment (maize, small grains and sorghum) or directly to foliage. This suggests that the 2-endo-chlorine atoms in trans-chlordane and gamma-DH contribute less to toxicity than the exo-chlorines present in alpha- and beta-DH and cis-chlordane. 0000004159 00000 n In water, the predominant fate of heptachlor is hydrolysis, with a half-life of 1–3.5 days. The estimated log Koc of 4.48 predicts that heptachlor will adsorb strongly to soil and resist leaching to groundwater. Similar data for altered neurological and altered dopamine and pituitary function are reported for exposure to the hydrocarbon styrene. In the air, heptachlor reacts with photochemically generated hydroxyl radicals with an estimated half-life of 6.3 h. Photolysis of heptachlor produces dechlorinated products and heptachlor epoxide. Table 5.2. Table 96.4. 0000002599 00000 n 0000001099 00000 n Chlordane is a mixture of chemicals once widely used for insect control in the United States. Both heptachlor and heptachlor epoxide are stored in adipose tissue and in the liver, kidney, and muscle tissues. Also environmental conditions and pH content of the soil can affect the longevity of the termite treatments. The characteristic liver changes (increased liver weights, alterations in serum liver enzyme activities and triglycerides, necrosis, fat in the hepatocytes, and depletion of glycogen) are often referred to as of the chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticide rodent liver type. (2007) were unable to show any area-wide effects of perimeter treatments of fipronil. The measured log Kow of 5.2 indicates that heptachlor bioaccumulates extensively (as heptachlor epoxide) in aquatic and terrestrial food chains. Of particular interest because they illustrate the variety of structures having toxicity in this series is the mixture of two interconvertible isomeric ketones (14 and 15, Figure 96.7), with high insect and mammalian toxicity (housefly LD50, 0.5 μg/g; rat LD50, 7 mg/kg), which can be obtained chemically from 5,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)-HCNB (“endosulfan-diol”). %%EOF Due to its highly stable structure, heptachlor can persist in the environment for decades. Several laboratory investigations utilizing cell- and animal-based models further support these findings, especially for dieldrin. The experiment was done to determine the dose of TCDD required to induce chloracne. In November 1974, EPA issued a Notice of Intent to Cancel all : registered uses of heptachlor except those for subterranean termite control ; and dipping of non-food plants. Most people are only acquainted with the type of termite treatments performed years after the typical house is built, but we will cover both here since they are closely related. The view that heptachlor is intrinsically toxic is supported by the toxicity (Table 96.3) of the alpha- and beta-dihydroheptachlor isomers (Figure 96.4), formed by the addition of hydrogen chloride to the double bond of chlordene. It is slow-acting and nonrepellent with the maximal effects occurring 3–5 days after exposure (Remmen and Su, 2005a,b; Saran and Rust, 2007). Two types of chronic exposure syndromes occur. Approximately 88.5% of the dose was absorbed. Heptachlor was used for agricultural purposes, seed treatment, wood protection, and insect control. Thus, neurologic effects of chronic pesticide exposure apparently include sympathetic stimulation of the adrenal glands. All structures contain the fully chlorinated norbornene moiety. Concentrations >100 ppm were needed to transfer fipronil among the Formosan subterranean termite, Coptotermes formosansus Shiraki (Shelton and Grace, 2003). Major transformations of alpha-endosulfan and isobenzan. 2. Selective damage to dopamine neurons and elevations in oxidative stress, alterations to mitochondrial function and elevated expression of α-synuclein have also been shown in primary cultured and clonal cell models of dieldrin exposure (Sanchez-Ramos et al., 1998; Kitazawa et al., 2001). Also used for control of household insects (Tomlin, 1994). Termite baits. Organochlorine insecticides, including DDT, dieldrin, heptachlor, lindane, and β-hexachlorocyclohexane (β-HCH), were extensively used, beginning in the 1940s and continuing through the 1970s, when their manufacture and use were discontinued due to environmental and human health concerns. These biopsies revealed mild steatosis, mild portal inflammation and fibrosis, glycogenated nuclei, and lipofuscin accumulation.60 A notable aspect of this outbreak was the successful use of cholestyramine to promote elimination of chlordecone, which appears to undergo enterohepatic circulation.4 Although DDT is carcinogenic in rodents, organochlorine pesticides have only inconsistently been linked to liver cancer (hepatocellular, biliary, and hemangiosarcoma) in pesticide applicators and farmers.58,61 Recently, we used the NHANES 2003-2004 database to investigate the effects of chronic low-level organochlorine pesticide exposure on liver enzyme elevation in American adults. The cyclodienes are moderate (e.g., aldrin, dieldrin, The Changing Role of Insecticides in Structural Pest Control. Heptachlor in soil and sediment can be taken up by organisms and plants. The anti-termite treatment conducted prior to construction and that done after construction. These analogues of isobenzan are more compact versions of the various cage molecules formed from dieldrin and provide further evidence that the dichloroethylene moiety of cyclodienes can be replaced by other polar moieties without loss of toxicity and with increased toxicity in some cases. 0000002302 00000 n The cyclodiene insecticides are highly toxic to aquatic life, bees, earthworms, and birds. Although the mechanisms of hepatotoxicity are not clearly defined in animal models, organochlorine pesticides induce cytochrome P-450, and emerging data suggest that they may be endocrine disrupters.58, Gerald T. Brooks, in Hayes' Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology (Third Edition), 2010. All areas in Queensland are subject to termite attack, however, termites are particularly aggressive in North Queensland and need a higher standard of treatment. Reed, S Koshlukova, in Encyclopedia of Toxicology (Third Edition), 2014. (2008) demonstrated a significant alteration in dopamine handling as well as an increase in oxidative stress and α-synuclein in mice exposed to dieldrin. For Heptachlor (USEPA/OPP Pesticide Code: 044801) there are 0 labels match. Bait systems are strongly recomended so that you have a “frontline” defence against future termite attack. All of these are deadly against termites. These are Aldrin, Chlordane, Heptachlor, Lindane, Dieldrin, Chlorpyrifos, and Pentachlorophenol. Chlordene (2, Figure 96.4) and its exo-epoxide (3, Figure 96.4) have a weak housefly toxicity, which is synergized 10-fold by sesoxane, suggesting that the biotransformations observed in microsomal preparations are detoxications (Brooks, 1966; Brooks and Harrison, 1964a, 1967a,b).

Of over 200,000 people exposed to methyl isocyanate at Bhopal, estimates are that up to 5000 died within 2 days and about 60,000 individuals require long-term medical management. Liver is the most common nonlethal target reported in chronic animal studies with cyclodienes except for endosulfan. Chlorpyrifos, fipronil, and imidacloprid were least persistent, losing 99, 67–96, and 50–95%, respectively. However, benzodiazepines and barbiturates are used to control the seizures. Conventional Barrier Treatments. As is the case with other organochlorine insecticides, the rate of absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is affected by fiber and fat content in the diet, with a lack of these favoring increased absorption. Taking into consideration their carcinogenicity profiles in animals, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified several cyclodienes (e.g., chlordane, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, and toxaphene) as possibly carcinogenic to humans. The primary metabolism of heptachlor is in the liver where microsomal enzymes convert the parent compound to the more toxic heptachlor epoxide as well as to the less toxic metabolites 1-chloro-3-hydroxychlordene, 1-hydroxychlordene, and 1-hydroxy-2,3-epoxychlordene. barrier between wood in the structure and the termite colonies in the SOIl. Matt Cave, ... Craig McClain, in Zakim and Boyer's Hepatology (Sixth Edition), 2012, Organochlorine insecticides include dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT); cyclodienes such as chlordane, dieldrin, aldrin, endrin, and heptachlor; caged structures such as mirex and chlordecone; and others. Several investigations of different sample sizes and methods (e.g., self-reporting, employment records, and biomarkers) pertaining to occupational (manufacturing and pesticide applicators) and nonoccupational exposures were inadequate for carcinogenicity evidence in humans. Heptachlor undergoes biotic and abiotic degradation in soil and water. (1996, 2000), which showed an elevation of dieldrin in the caudate nucleus and substantia nigra of patients with PD compared with controls. @�����@�u�+��:��(5j(#� :�����(��o��t6ɋ It seems likely that the lower toxicity of heptacholor in rats fed gluten depends on limited conversion of the compound to heptachlor epoxide as a result of limited activity of the microsomal enzymes of the liver. Eight of the 10 subjects developed chloracne, which lasted 4–7 months. It was not detectable at 0.05 ppm at several homes 1 year after treatment with 0.05% imidacloprid (Osbrink et al., 2005). The primary sequelae is chronic pulmonary damage, a combined obstructive and restrictive type. {���{ɐ�M��:�D�\bDF�J���e�m��W��q���V �*Y! The last two compounds were once used to control animal ectoparasites because of their low mammalian toxicity; endosulfan is still used extensively today, whereas isobenzan was discontinued in 1965. Below is a preview for e… The biotransformations of chlordene and heptachlor involve allylic hydroxylation for chlordene, hydrolysis of allylic chlorine for heptachlor, epoxidation (Miles et al., 1969), and epoxide ring hydration (Brooks, 1966; Figure 96.4). Gluten is an incomplete protein that reduces food intake and permits only an abnormally small increase in body weight of rats that consume it ad libitum as their only source of protein. 0000002844 00000 n The metabolism of the two chlordane isomers, alpha- (= trans-1,2-dichlorodihydrochlordene) and beta- (= cis-1,2-dichlorodihydrochlordene), is complex (Figure 96.5). Is heptachlor much more toxic than chlordene because the allylic chlorine inhibits hydroxylation in this position and also ensures that heptachlor is converted into the metabolically stable epoxide? Organic matter content, silt and clay proportions, pH, and cation exchange capacity affected the bioavailability of imidacloprid to subterranean termites (Ramakrishnan et al., 2000). It is used to control ants, cutworms, maggots, termites, thrips, weevils, wireworms and many other insect pests in both cultivated and uncultivated soils. These compounds are of further concern as their physical and chemical properties confer a high degree of lipophilicity and resistance to breakdown and metabolism, both in the environment as well as the human body, which allows them to persist and bioaccumulate in these settings. With the loss of organochlorine chemistry, there has been a progression of insecticides registered for termite control as partially reviewed by Rust (2001) and Kard (2003). German cockroach toxicity compared with dieldrin (1.0) by exposure to dry films on paper. Horizontal transfer occurs only when donors are exposed to deposits with concentrations ≤5 ppm (Bagnères et al., 2009; Saran and Rust, 2007; Tsunoda, 2006), maximum transfer occurs within first 24 h (Saran and Rust, 2007), and contact and grooming are the primary mechanisms for transfer (Bagnères et al., 2009; Saran and Rust, 2007). The cyclodienes are moderate (e.g., aldrin, dieldrin, heptachlor, chlordane, and toxaphene) to high acutely toxic (e.g., endrin, telodrin, and endosulfan) oral toxicants based on their reported LD50 values in animals. The Termi-Mite Termite Monitoring, Treatment system makes DIY termite treatment easy. Moreover, an additional chlorine introduced into the 2-exo-position of gamma-DH (Table 96.3) increases its toxicity more than 40-fold, so that the resulting gem-dichloro-compound is as toxic as beta-DH having the single exo-chlorine in this position.

Heptachlor is registered in the United States only for underground use in power lines for fire ants (Reigart and Roberts, 1999). Concomitant exposure to other chemicals (e.g., organochlorines and pesticides) was a common confounder in these studies. There are three types of termite management: physical barriers; chemical barriers; monitoring baits and stations. 62 0 obj<> endobj Insect Toxicity of Aldrin and Dieldrin Relatives, Including Some Molecules with Fewer Chlorine Atoms. These latter metabolites are also more easily excreted. Until the voluntary halt in production in July 1987, millions of homes in the United States were treated with chlordane and heptachlor for termites even though their agricultural uses were phased out in 1978, largely on the grounds of "imminent hazard" because of carcinogenicity. Heptachlor tends to stay in soil for long periods of time. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Nonlethal acute poisoning signs in humans are headaches, tremors, seizures, numbness, nausea, fatigue, gastrointestinal symptoms, skin and eye irritation, unconsciousness, incoordination, excitability, hyporeflexia, and convulsions.
