Health considerations

Anilazine is highly toxic to fish and other aquatic creatures. It breaks down quickly in soil, however, minimizing run-off risk. Anilazine is described as slightly toxic to rats and practically nontoxic to birds and bees. It is primarily an irritant to skin.

Keep in mind

Anilazine lost approval use in Canada in 2005.
