Submit your public comment to ban toxic cyantraniliprole
Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OPP-2011-0668
Given the EPA's recent findings that cyantraniliprole is likely to adversely affect more than 40% of threatened or endangered species, it's clear our natural world needs us to enact stronger environmental protections against this harmful pesticide.
In addition to harming animals such as bees, butterflies and rainbow trout, cyantraniliprole can also drift from where it's sprayed, and it can pollute water sources via runoff from the soil of treated areas.
I urge the EPA to order the phase-out of this pesticide unless and until it can be proven safe, and to immediately implement the strongest possible measures for reducing the risks cyantraniliprole poses to our environment and our health, such as mitigating spray drift and runoff pollution.
