US proceeds with allethrin cancellations

The US EPA has issued a cancellation order for all registrations of the allethrin pyrethroid insecticides, including bioallethrin, d-allethrin, esbiol and esbiothrin. The only technical registrants, Sumitomo Chemical and its US-based subsidiary, Valent BioSciences, requested the cancellations last year ( Agrow No 655, p 14). The EPA is sticking with the registrants’ request for technical registrations to be cancelled from September 30th 2015 and end-use product approvals to end on December 31st 2016. The Agency has turned down a request from the product registrant, ThermaCell, for companies to be given until 2020 to identify an alternative provider of allethrins.
