Proposed EPA restrictions on Rodenticides:

What are they? How do they affect my business? How do I comply?

Thursday Apr 20, 2023 2:00 – 4:00 PM CST




Green Shield Certified (GSC) and the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) invite you to attend this informational webinar regarding upcoming Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rodenticide restrictions and how to comply as a pest control operator.

Last year, the EPA proposed to categorize all second-generation anti-coagulant rodenticides for restricted use, make changes to some first-generation anti-coagulant rodenticide statuses and adjust application methods within certain areas of the US. The 11 rodenticides include brodifacoum, bromadiolone, bromethalin, chlorophacinone, cholecalciferol, difenacoum, difethialone, diphacinone (and its sodium salt), strychnine, warfarin (and its sodium salt) and zinc phosphide.

ABC’s Director of Government Relations, Hardy Kern, will describe these restrictions and explain the EPA’s motivation to adopt these restrictions to protect endangered species and wildlife.

Following discussion of the new restrictions, urban rodentologist Dr. Bobby Corrigan and GSC founder Dr. Thomas Green will review the rodent trapping, baiting, exclusion and sanitation strategies that structural pest control professionals can adopt to meet and exceed these EPA rodenticide restrictions.
