Re: [APD] Re: Avoiding fleas
phenothrin is a pyrethroid compound not an organophosphate, it it has a very
low mammalian toxicity but has severe effects on insects.
Some contain types of organophosphate insecticides, such
as phenothrin, which are suggested to cause seizures in some cats.
I'm not saying it cant cause seizures in cats as its a mammalian
neuropoisoin in very high doses (I would not feed a cat this stuff!).
It is a compound that's best not used near fish (i.e. Rainbow Trout kill
LC50 96 hours at 0.018 mg/L).
I'll probably get shot down in flames for this but some of the specific
organophosphates may be the best thng to use near fish.
