The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has announced it will recommend the adoption of a pest control product that could reduce the spread of some rodenticides.
The agency announced in a press release that it will “recommend the adoption” of a rodenticide that is “capable of reducing the incidence of transmission and the transmission of disease to humans” and that has “low-level toxicity.”
The recommendation will be included in the next NIEHS report on pest control.
This follows an announcement in April that pest control products could be more cost effective for controlling rodent pests.
According to NIEH, the new pest control “targeted” product “will be a natural, non-invasive, low-cost pest control solution that will not have significant systemic side effects, and can be used in the field and in the home.”
A report released in June by the U.S. Department of Agriculture also suggested a new rodenticide could be used to control the spread and spread of many other diseases.
But it did not recommend that the product be used on rodents, such as the common house mouse, because of concerns that rodents could transmit disease.
The rodenticides that are currently available can kill mice, but they can’t prevent human disease spread, according to the USDA.
A 2014 report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concluded that there was no evidence to suggest that the raticides used for rodent control could reduce human spread of infectious diseases.
There are two rodenticides available for use against mice, and one, called dicamba, is widely used in agriculture.
There is also a newer, cheaper product called Bt-8.
The pest control industry is pushing for the adoption, but it’s unclear how much support the products will receive.
It’s also unclear if the products could still be approved by the Food and Drug Administration if the agencies’ recommendations are approved.
