CINCINNATI — State Rep. Dale Mallory, D-West End, and Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Miami Twp., held a press conference Tuesday morning on the steps of Cincinnati City Hall asking the EPA to approve the use of Propoxur for bed bugs, Cincinnati.com reports.

Mallory sponsored a resolution in the Ohio House urging the EPA to allow use of Propoxur. The Ohio Senate has yet to act on the resolution

Ohio's efforts to get the propoxur exemption date back to 2009 when Matt Beal, assistant chief at the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA), submitted to EPA a request for a "Section 18 Exemption for the use of three formulations of propoxur for the control of bed bugs in residential single or multiple unit dwellings, apartments, hotels, motels, office buildings, modes of transportation and commercial industrial buildings in Ohio."
