SACRAMENTO, Calif.  – The nation’s pest management professionals now have an online resource dedicated to keeping them abreast of new labeling and regulatory requirements related to products containing widely used pyrethroid pesticides, an industry group announced today.

The site, www.pwg2pmp.com, is intended to serve as the “go-to” pyrethroids resource for pest management professionals (PMPs), according to officials from the Pyrethroid Working Group (PWG).


“There are major developments at both the federal and state level that will have a direct impact on PMPs and how they conduct business,” said Fred Pearson, chairman of the PWG. “Because of this, we believe it is important to assist our customers who apply our products commercially.”

Professional pest control operators may soon be required to make changes in how they apply pyrethroid pesticides. The new requirements are contained in updated surface water regulations proposed by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CPDR) and in label changes required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help ensure that pesticides are applied in a manner to minimize runoff that may reach surface waters.

The web site offers an overview of the new labeling requirements in development at EPA, he said, as well as related regulations under consideration at the state level, especially in California.

“This issue is on the front burner in California,” Pearson said. “CDPR is implementing the federal changes more quickly and is promoting regulations that target urban uses.”

The new web site provides PMPs with an easy way to monitor and participate in the regulatory process by enabling them to subscribe to email alerts, which will notify them of new developments. For more information, visit
