Pollinator Protection

Schedule for Review of Neonicotinoid Pesticides

The dockets for all the neonicotinoid pesticides have been opened. Our goal is to review the pesticides in this class in the same timeframe so we can ensure consistency across the class.  As EPA completes risk assessments for the neonicotinoids, the Agency will pursue risk mitigation, as appropriate.
