The APVMA is considering an application for the registration of a product containing the new active constituent metaflumizone. The product, Siesta Granular Ant Bait is to be registered for the control of nuisance ant species (such as coastal brown ant, black ant and red imported fire ant) on gardens, golf courses, industrial lawns, parks, turf, sports grounds and other non-crop land and non-food bearing nursery stock.

The APVMA is able to consider comments relating to the legislative grounds for registration, including:

  • occupational health and safety
  • public health
  • chemistry and manufacture
  • residues in food
  • environmental safety
  • trade
  • efficacy and target crop safety
