Ficam® D withdrawal dates now confirmed
Bendiocarb, the active ingredient in Ficam® D, phase-out dates have now been confirmed by the HSE. The dates will be applied from the expiry date of the active substance from 31st January 2024, with a 180 days sell out period and additional 180 day for the use of existing stock.
Therefore, the phase-out dates are as follows:
Sold by date – 29th July 2024 (product can no longer be purchased after this date)
Use by date – 25th January 2025 (product can no longer be used after this date)
Ficam® D is a ready-to-use dustable powder containing Bendiocarb for use indoors as an insecticide against ants, and for the control of wasps and hornets (nests), including Asian Hornets. For over forty years the product has been an effective and essential tool within the professional pest management sector.
Over recent years, there have been significant assessments and investments, including changes to the product labelling in 2020, to keep the product available for pest professionals. However new BPR registrations have now made it very difficult to keep products such as Ficam® D on the market.
