Pest Control Technicians are required to follow the "new" pyrethroid labeling. But, what percentage of insecticide is sold to "non" PCO's where the label directions are not actively enforced. My best guess is that more pesticides are applied by non-PMP's and I do not expect "new" labeling to reduce the level of active ingredients various agencies are concerned with, which in turn may bring more restrictions. To turn this into a question, can we expect the new pyrethoid labeling to be effective in achieving the results that are hoped for?
Clearly the issue of Synthetic Pyrethroids and the new labeling that went on in 2012, and which will be relaxed a bit in 2013, is an important one. Hopefully everyone is beginning to feel comfortable with what is permitted and what has been restricted, but any questions can be answered with the resources on this issue on PestWeb.
