NALP Submits Comments to EPA on Modifications to the Minimum Risk Pesticide Listing Programs

This week, NALP staff submitted suggestions to EPA on how the agency might improve the process of granting exemptions to pesticides registration requirements. Known as the 25(b) products, these minimum risk pesticides have been determined to present little risk to humans and the environment. NALP comments focused upon lack of efficacy testing, public perceptions of safety, and improper use. We also touched upon issues that member companies are encountering with unlicensed companies performing mosquito and tick applications using 25(b) products and suggested that licensing and registration requirements be modified to be more in line with EPA registered pesticide products.
