Materials and methods

Type of study / information:
Type: other: repellency test
Principles of method if other than guideline:
A repellency test is performed using house mice and white wheat seeds treated with 2.0 % of the test substance. 25 wheat seeds were offered to 10 individually caged mice for a 5-day period along with an alternate (less preferred) food (laboratory rodent pellets). The test results were summarized by the percentage of mice refusing to eat an average of 13 or more treated seeds per day during the 5-day test period.
GLP compliance:
no
