What is Carbaryl?

Carbaryl (chemical name: 1-naphthyl methylcarbamate) is a chemical derived from the carbamate family used primarily as an insecticide. Carbaryl first was sold commercially in 1958 and is used popularly by the Bayer Company in a product known by the brand name, Sevin. In its original form, carbaryl is a white crystal-like solid. 

Carbaryl remains the third-most-used insecticide in the United States for residential gardens, commercial agriculture, and forestry and rangeland protection with over 300 products containing carbaryl currently registered with the EPA.

Carbaryl is sold in a number of different formulations such as in powder form, granule, and liquid concentrate. 

How Does Carbaryl Work?

Carbaryl and other carbamate products mode of action is via acting as reversible inhibitors of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. What this means in layman's terms is that when a pest comes in contact with the chemical through digesting it or touching it, the carbaryl directly attacks the nervous system, causing death.

Carbamate insecticides such as carbaryl has been regarded as a game changer in the pest control industry. Although toxic to insects, carbaryl is detoxified and breaks down quickly in vertebrates so it does little to no harm. It is neither concentrated in fat nor secreted in milk, so it makes it ideal to be used around food crops in the US.
