Canada to place more controls on 1080

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed additional restrictions on the use of the vertebrate control agent, sodium monofluoroacetate (also known as 1080), to protect non-target birds and mammals. It is used as a bait and collar solution to control predators of domestic animals in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The PMRA initiated a special review of the pesticide in December 2011 (Agrow No 632, p 14).  The measures proposed are: burying of multi-dose tablets for the control of coyotes; placement of tablets deep into cuts made in carcasses to reduce exposure to scavenging birds; destruction and disposal of poisoned carcasses; disposal of containers and unused product; and a label statement prohibiting use in designated areas where species at risk exist. The proposals are open to public comment until October 27th.
