US review decision for propetamphos
The US EPA has issued a proposed registration review decision for the organophosphate insecticide, propetamphos. The Agency has determined that it is unnecessary to conduct a new health risk assessment as the only product registration will be cancelled on March 31st. The registrant, Wellmark International, requested voluntary cancellation last year ( Agrow No 598, p 25). Zoecon 9001 EW is a non-residential indoor crack and crevice treatment for pests such as ants and cockroaches. The EPA issued a cancellation order on December 30th 2010.
