    I would concur, the new product will have a new label. It is a different product even though it has the same active ingrdient.

    looks like you got it done

    Subject: FIFRA Emergency Exemption (Section 18) Approval - HopGuard/Varroa Mite

    A FIFRA Section 18 specific exemption has recently been granted to New York State by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the use of HopGuard (EPA registration number not assigned) to control varroa mites (Varroa destructor) in honey bees in New York State during 2014. HopGuard contains the active ingredient of potassium salt of hop beta acids.

    A copy of the Section 18 should be available through PIMS (http://pims.psur.cornell.edu) as well as the regulatory section of our website (http://pmep.cce.cornell.edu/regulation/index.html) shortly.

    Users must have a copy of the Section 18 exemption in their possession at the time of use.

    Thanks, but I did little but contact the people that Nick Calderone asked me to, who were already doing the work. The folks at Cornell University in Ithaca,NY and at the NYS DEC in Albany did what needed doing to get the process completed.

    It's nice when the system works.

    I'm just wondering why all the work for a product that does little more than a sugar dusting? The product is only about 30% effective when used as directed. Yes I used Hopguard last year, and the mites just laughed. Maybe when Hopguard II is released it will be better. The manufacturer of Hopguard knows the product doesn't do what they said it would do. Hopguard II is supposed to be much more effective. The goop is the same, just 3 times the amount, applied with a corrugated cardboard strip. This allows the good to stay moist longer to increase the effective time. I'm getting my Hopguard II info from a guy who talked to the manufacturer at the show in January.

    The $200 spent on Hopguard last year was money flushed down the toilet.
