Real-world field exposures—TANK MIXES– beyond EPA’s scope

EPA’s Biological & Economic Analysis Division (BEAD)  stated, “Regarding the assessment of honey bee exposure to multiple pesticide mixtures, evaluation of pesticide environmental mixtures to any taxa is considered beyond the scope of the  *EFED assessment  . . .

However, it is acknowledged that not considering mixtures could over- or under- estimate risks depending on the type of interaction and factors discussed above.”

*EFED= Environmental Fate & Effects Division of EPA
