This insecticide is a member of the nitrogen heterocyclic class of pesticides and was introduced commercially in 1952. It subsequently has been marketed under a variety of names including Dianonr, Diazider, Diazolr, Neocidalr, and Sarolexr. Diazinon is a relatively safe insecticide that has an amazingly good track record around the home. It has been effectively utilized in a wide spectrum of applications including insects in the home, lawn, garden, ornamentals, around pets, and for fly control in stables and pet quarters. Diazinon has been successfully used in a slow-release formulation which allows the insecticide to volatilize at a much slower rate, allowing it to kill flying and crawling insects in the vicinity of application.
