The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced it is cancelling registrations for 12 neonicotinoid-containing pesticides, effective May 20, 2019. This announcement will not impact products available in Canada.
The EPA cancelled registration for the 12 products in response to litigation that had been ongoing for over five years between the EPA and environmental activists, who challenged the EPA's approval process concerning registered neonic pesticides. Manufacturers voluntarily agreed to pull their products as part of the settlement.
