EHC 153 (WHO, 1994); 64 (WHO, 1986; a review of carbamate insecticides in general). Animals In mammals, carbaryl does not accumulate in body tissues, but is rapidly metabolised to non-toxic substances, particularly 1-naphthol. This, together with the glucuronic acid conjugate, is eliminated predominantly in the urine and faeces. Metabolism of carbamate insecticides is reviewed (M. Cool & C. K. Jankowski in "Insecticides"). Plants Metabolites are 4-hydroxycarbaryl, 5-hydroxycarbaryl and methylol-carbaryl. Soil/Environment Under aerobic conditions, carbaryl at 1 ppm degraded with DT50 7-14 d in a sandy loam and 14-28 d in a clay loam.
