As posted posted on Bee-L:

"EPA has finally issued the cancellation notice for Tactic, an agricultural
formulation of amitraz widely used by commercial beekeepers to control
varroa. Legally, no more production or import into the U.S. is allowed
effective as of today, 6 Aug., 2014 and only existing stocks may be sold,
distributed or used. Illegal smuggling from Mexico or Australia may
continue, but quantity should be squeezed and illegal use may be heavily
penalized."

Way to go feds. :applause:

Good job for going after all the really low handing fruit.
they made it legal before they closed the illegal market and gave you warning that if you get caught using it illegally that they would hammer your. I think they were rather nice for a change.

Yes. Rumored to be widely trusted and relied upon by commercial folks.

Maybe the guy tossing the queens and packages over the northern fence in the middle of Montana can now expect his Canadian cousin to insert a couple of jugs in some errant south bound balloon? Got to love NAFTA!!!
