SumofUs.org: “Health Canada — reject Bayer’s risky new pesticide to bees.” Image by SumofUs.org
Pesticide giant Bayer wants our government to approve ANOTHER new bee-killing insecticide, flupyradifurone.
Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is proposing full registration for the sale and use of Flupyradifurone TC, and the end-use products BYI 02960 480 FS and Sivanto 200 SL, containing the technical grade active ingredient flupyradifurone, to control various insect pests.
Bayer has launched flupyradifurone (trade mark as Sivanto Prime) in Honduras and Guatemala this year. The US EPA has scheduled registration decision for this by the end of this year. The comment for PMRA’s proposal is open to public until November 3rd.

Proposed Registration Decision for Flupyradifurone
“Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act and Regulations, is proposing full registration for the sale and use of Flupyradifurone TC, and the end-use products BYI 02960 480 FS and Sivanto 200 SL, containing the technical grade active ingredient flupyradifurone, to control various insect pests…..
Flupyradifurone is moderately persistent to persistent in the terrestrial environment and persistent in the aquatic environment with the exception of the photic zones where it is not expected to persist. Flupyradifurone is highly mobile and has a potential to leach to groundwater and enter aquatic environments through surface runoff. Flupyradifurone used as a foliar spray may pose a potential risk to non-target terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates, including bees. When flupyradifurone is used for soybean seed treatment, it poses a potential risk to birds and small wild mammals. However, no risk to bees is expected through dust-off exposure during planting of treated seeds. The identified risks can be mitigated with spray buffer zones to protect sensitive aquatic habitats from spray drift and through the use of label statements to inform and instruct users regarding potential risks to birds and mammals, bees and beneficial arthropods, and to the environment….
Before making a final registration decision on flupyradifurone, the PMRA will consider all comments received from the public in response to this consultation document. The PMRA will accept written comments on this proposal up to 45 days from the date of publication of this document. Please note that, to comply with Canada’s international trade obligations, consultation on the proposed MRLs will also be conducted internationally via a notification to the World Trade Organization. Please forward all comments to Publications (contact information on the cover page of this document). The PMRA will then publish a Registration Decision, which will include its decision, the reasons for it, a summary of comments received on the proposed final decision and the Agency’s response to these comments.
When the PMRA makes its registration decision, it will publish a Registration Decision on flupyradifurone (based on the Science Evaluation of this consultation document). In addition, the test data referenced in this consultation document will be available for public inspection, upon application, in the PMRA’s Reading Room (located in Ottawa)…..“
