DescriptionTermiticide registrations have been newsworthy for years now, as highlighted in some of the recent USDA Forest Service termiticide reports published in this magazine. One issue driving the changes in pesticide registrations is the length of time required to bring new active ingredients to the market. This is one of several issues that affect the number of safe and effective products available, and therefore it's important to everyone. Product development time is controlled by several factors, including the registration process itself. For example, a bettery of toxicological, environmental impact and efficacy tests are required to register new termiticides. Termiticide efficacy tests alone require six to eight years to complete.
