Guidance for Using Pesticides with Pollinator Protection Language
The Association of Structural Pest Control Regulatory Officials (ASPCRO) developed guidance intended to aid state lead agencies in neonicotinoid label interpretations for structural pest control use patterns. In late July 2014, EPA responded to ASPCRO's document and confirmed that the ASPCRO guidance document reflects the appropriate interpretation of pollinator protective labeling on neonicotinoid insecticides. Pest management professionals are urged to read and follow all label instructions. When questions arise, it is always best to reach out to regulators to confirm label interpretations.
