Because of difficulty in determining residues of pyrethrins quantitatively in the presence of high concentrations of the usual synergist, piperonyl butoxide, the evaluation of the residual behavior of the readily analyzed piperonyl butoxide alone has heretofore been thought to be adequate for most residue studies with pyrethrins-piperonyl butoxide mixtures. The residual behavior of the pyrethrins has been thought to parallel that of the piperonyl butoxide component of such mixtures.

By the use of chromatographic techniques in conjunction with colorimetric procedures, the residual behavior of the pyrethrins and of piperonyl butoxide on stored wheat have been compared. The pyrethrins have an apparent residue half-life of 5.8 weeks in contrast with that of 9.0 weeks for piperonyl butoxide.
