Dichlorvos (a.k.a. DDVP, 2,2-Dichlorovinyl Dimethyl Phosphate) is an organophosphate. It is a rapid-acting insecticide with strong fumigant action, used in bait and aerosols for flies and mosquitoes, in public health, protecting stored product from insects, and incorporated in slow-release plastic strips and in pet collars against parasites. Dichlorvos act by interfering with the activities of cholinesterase, an enzyme that is essential for the proper working of the nervous systems of both humans and insects. Dichlorvos is manufactured by a reaction between chloral and trimethyl phosphite. It is also produced by the degradation of trichlorfon.
