Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: For a termiticide to reach the American market where it's available for purchase by pest management professionals (PMPs), it must be federally registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Chemical manufacturers wishing to register their products as a termiticide submit a registration package to the EPA containing fairly standard, nontarget toxicity and environmental fate studies, as well as efficacy data. The EPA uses all these factors to determine termiticide registration.

Keywords: Termiticide testing, pesticide regulation, termite control, termiticide efficacy
