Abstract:Delnav® (a mixture of 2,3-p-dioxanedithiol S,S-bis(O,Odiethyl phosphorodithioate) (70%) and related compounds) is a thiophosphate insecticide which is useful as a livestock and plant insecticide. Young dairy calves tolerated 0.1% sprays and grown cattle tolerated 0.5% sprays. Sheep, goats, and cattle sprayed once with 0.15% Delnav stored less than 1 p.p.m. in omental fat. Hogs sprayed once with 0.25% emulsion stored no marc than 0.17 p.p.m.Whole blood cholinesterase was not significantly depressed in cattle and sheep sprayed with 0.15% emulsion, but it was in goats.
