The Chemicals Regulatory Directiorate (CRD) of the UK’s Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has provided an update to clarify the position regarding the use of metaldehyde as a molluscicide.
Commission Implementing Directive 2011/54/EU of 20 April 2011 amending Council Directive 91/414/EEC to include metaldehyde as active substance and amending Commission Decision 2008/934/EC has a specific provision that molluscicides should contain an effective dog repellent agent.
CRD now advise that, following advice from the Advisory Committee on Pesticides, the following substances at the stated concentrations were considered to be effective dog repellents, and are therefore in compliance with the Regulations:
Bitre: 016 – 0.024%
Repulsif R: 0.2-0.4%
Alamask: 0.5-1.0 %
