The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently developed new pesticide labels
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently developed new pesticide labels that prohibit the use of new pesticide products in bees infested areas to protect bees and other pollinators....
The new label will contain a bee Advisory box, along with icons for pesticide exposure and drift route information. The addition of labels will affect the effects of the new imidacloprid insecticides, imidacloprid, furosemide, cefotaxime, and hydrochlorothiazide. The EPA will work with pesticide manufacturers to modify labels to meet the federal pesticide, fungicide and Rodenticide standards (FIFRA) safety standards. In May, USDA and the environmental protection agency issued a comprehensive scientific report on bee health. A series of complex stress factors have led to a decline in the number of honeybees, including habitat loss, parasites and diseases, genetic causes, malnutrition, and pesticide exposure, the report said.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is working on new labels to actively protect bees and reduce pesticide exposure, says Jim Jones, assistant head of the chemical safety and pollution prevention Office in the United states.
The EPA will continue to work with beekeepers, growers, pesticide users, pesticide and seed companies, and federal and state agencies to reduce pesticide dust drift and to further strengthen pesticide use management. The EPA recently issued new federal, state and tribal law enforcement guidelines to increase efforts to investigate the deaths of honeybees. (World Agricultural Network)
