Temephos is one of a few organophosphates registered to control mosquito larvae, and is the only organophosphate with any appreciable larvicidal use. It is an important resistance management tool for mosquito abatement programs. Temephos residues in food and drinking water do not pose risk concerns since temephos has no food uses and, because of its limited use pattern, is not expected to be found in drinking water. Residential risk is not of concern since temephos has no residential use and its use in mosquito abatement programs does not result in residential exposure. With mitigation measures, temephos' worker and ecological risks will be eligible for reregistration.
