PMRA changes mind about Imidacloprid
June 4, 2018 – The Pest Management Regulatory Agency has changed its mind about Imidacloprid. Three years ago, the PMRA determined the environmental risks for most products containing imidacloprid did not meet current safety standards.
Imidacloprid is the active ingredient in Merit®, an insecticide registered for control on turf of European chafer, Japaneese beetle, black turfgrass ataenius and European cranefly larvae.
"Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act and based on the evaluation of currently available scientific information related to pollinators, products containing Imidacloprid are being proposed for continued registration in Canada, and risk mitigation measures are required to be in place to further protect pollinators," stated the Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2018-12, Imidacloprid and its Associated End-use Products: Pollinator Re-evaluation.
Consultation is open until Aug. 29 for further comment on the proposed re-evaluation decision. A full copy of the document is needed before being able to comment. It can be accessed by clicking here.
