Consultation on Pyriproxyfen and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re evaluation Decision PRVD2019-10

Notice to the reader:

This consultation is now closed.

Health Canada is consulting Canadians on the proposal to continue registration for all uses of pyriproxyfen, with label updates to further protect health and the environment. This proposed decision follows a re-evaluation of the pesticide under the Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s (PMRA) Re-evaluation Program.

Pyriproxyfen contributes to the management of white flies in greenhouse vegetable and ornamental production, flea control in indoor, non-food areas of structures, and management of fleas on cats and dogs.

Currently registered products containing pyriproxyfen can be found in the Pesticide Label Search results and in Appendix I of the proposed re-evaluation decision.

Health Canada proposes label statements updated to standard baseline personal protective equipment, with standardized precautionary statements, best practice statements, and label directions to reflect actual use conditions.

For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Re-evaluation Decision”.
