EPA Registration

In the past few weeks, we engaged the US Environmental Protection Agency in order to determine a path for  registration for our product as a biochemical pesticide. The meeting went well and we have been presented with a reasonably cost effective path to registration. Bio-pesticides enjoy a more simplified and cost effective registration procedure than conventional pesticides because of their natural product nature in the environment. If a chemical compound has been existing in nature for thousands of years and, has not caused any particular problems in the environment, it probably will not cause problems in the future. There is still a substantial amount of toxicology, safety and stability data required of any product used even in soil applications and greenhouses. Such testings includes honeybees, ladybugs and other animals possibly exposed to the compounds.

As an example, Bacillus thuringensis was first approved for use as a bio-pesticide in the early 1900’s and is still in use today. We hope to be able to offer the same level of effectiveness and safety as this and other bio-pesticides on the market today.
