Coumaphos is a non-volatile, fat-soluble organophosphate with ectoparasiticide properties: it kills insects and mites. It is well known under manufacturer brand-names as a dip or wash, used on farm and domestic animals to control all sorts of ticks, mites, flies and fleas. [1] It may also be being used to control varroa mites in honey bee colonies.

In Australia, its registration as suited to home veterinary use was cancelled by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority in June 2004 after the manufacturer failed to show that it was safe for use on pets. [2]
