TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION Only acute toxicity studies have been performed on this product as formulated. The non-acute information pertains to the technical-grade active ingredient, clothianidin. Acute Oral Toxicity male rat: LD50: <= 2,000 mg/kg female rat: LD50: 2,000 mg/kg Page 4 of 7

5 Acute Dermal Toxicity Acute Inhalation Toxicity male/female rat: LD50: > 4,000 mg/kg male/female rat: LC50: > 2.6 mg/l Exposure time: 4 h Determined in the form of liquid aerosol. male/female rat: LC50: > 10.4 mg/l Exposure time: 1 h Determined in the form of liquid aerosol. Extrapolated from the 4 hr LC50. Skin Irritation Eye Irritation Sensitization Chronic Toxicity rabbit: No skin irritation. rabbit: No eye irritation. guinea pig: Non-sensitizing. Clothianidin caused effects in the liver, kidney and/or ovaries following chronic exposure to high doses in mice, rats, and dogs. Assessment Carcinogenicity Clothianidin was not carcinogenic in oncogenicity studies in rats and mice. ACGIH NTP IARC OSHA Reproductive & Developmental Toxicity REPRODUCTION: Clothianidin is not considered a reproductive toxicant at nonmaternally toxic dose levels. DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Clothianidin was not a primary developmental toxicant in rats and rabbits. Developmental effects were observed in rabbits but were considered secondary to maternal toxicity. Neurotoxicity Mutagenicity Clothianidin was not a neurotoxicant in acute, subchronic and developmental neurotoxicity screening studies in rats. Clothianidin was not genotoxic based on the overall weight of evidence in a battery of in vitro and in vivo tests. SECTION 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Page 5 of 7
