EPA To Regulate Ion Generators as PesticidesWashington, DC | Posted on September 21st, 2007
Under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, a product that incorporates a substance or mixture of substances to prevent, destroy, repel, or mitigate pests is considered a pesticide and must be registered. However, a product that uses only physical or mechanical means to trap, destroy, repel, or mitigate a pest (including microbial pests), such as a mousetrap, is a device and does not need to be registered. Its production and labeling are regulated.
