Hylobius Insecticides 2024

2 April 2024

A summery of the current situation from Colin Palmer.

The key factors are as follows:


May be used for first generation protection. Last forestry use 31 July 2024. Renewal for post planting use August onwards unlikely.


Product will be available for use in the UK and FSC has agreed for use August onwards proving an Environmental & Social Risk Assessment is made.

It may be prudent to order soonest as stock levels may not support late purchases.


Applications for use are being assessed by HSE/CRD with the hope that a positive outcome will result in time for late summer use.
