Canada to OK Sumitomo's momfluorothrin

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has proposed the approval of four non-agricultural insecticides based on Sumitomo Chemical's new pyrethroid, momfluorothrin. MGK 29871, MGK 29872 and Momfluorothrin Flying and Crawling Insect Killer Spray combine momfluorothrin with the established pyrethroid, d-phenothrin. MGK 29831 combines momfluorothrin with the synergist, piperonyl butoxide. They are for the control of ants, cockroaches, flies and spiders found indoors and outdoors at residential locations. The US EPA aims to make a registration decision on momfluorothrin for residential non-food use by the end of the year. The Canadian decision is open to public comment until December 1st.
