Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is proposing registration for the sale and use of Deltamethrin Technical Insecticide and Annihilator PolyZone, containing the technical grade active ingredient deltamethrin, to control crawling and flying insect pests by application on indoor and outdoor surfaces of agricultural buildings and structures.
Deltamethrin is the active ingredient in the commercial class product Annihilator PolyZone Insecticide, which is used to kill various insect and tick pests in and on agricultural structures. Deltamethrin is a broad-spectrum synthetic pyrethroid insecticide which affects the insect nervous system causing paralysis and death.
Deltamethrin Technical Insecticide (Registration Number 18092) is currently registered in Canada for use on greenhouse ornamentals, greenhouse food crops, industrial oilseed crops, terrestrial feed and food crops, roadsides, shelterbelts and turf for the control of numerous insect pests and to control adult mosquitoes in residential and recreational areas. The use of deltamethrin on structures is a new use for this active ingredient.
An evaluation of available scientific information found that, under the approved conditions of use, the health and environmental risks and the value of the pest control products are acceptable.
