With the recent withdrawal of dichlorvos, the trend for increasingly restrictive legislation continues.

Dichlorvos is the latest active ingredient in a list of molecules which have been withdrawn due to increasing regulatory pressure.

Dichlorvos, also known as DDVP, is best known for its vapour based action, and relatively long life as an insecticide. Products using dichlorvos have been relied upon by PCOS and non professional users for many years, particularly for the unique characteristics DDVP displays.

To some extent, DDVP is a victim of its own success. The vapour action so useful in the control of insects in deep harbourage is also pervasive. Coupled with the likelihood that dichlorvos is a carcinogen, the pervasive nature of dichlorvos products was a factor in the decision by the advisory committee to recommend that ministers withdraw registrations for products containing DDVP.

Further details regarding the withdrawal of DDVP based products are available in the news section.
