EU approval for two biocide ais

Hydrogen cyanide is for use as an insecticide/acaricide, rodenticide and wood preservative, while cis-tricos-9-ene is a repellent/attractant. The ten-year EU approvals for both ais commence from October 1st 2014. They were cleared by EU Ministers in October ( Agrow No 650, p 11).
