Label Changes for Belay® Insecticides

The active ingredient of Belay® insecticide is clothianidin, a third generation neonicotinoid, which has been registered for control of piercing sucking insects including stink bugs, aphids, plant bugs, Colorado potato beetle, leafhoppers and more. Valent U.S.A. announced that it is voluntarily removing or limiting certain crop uses on the Belay® label going forward due to on-going regulatory challenges with these uses. Specifically, all Fruiting Vegetable & Cranberry uses have been removed and uses for Cotton, Cucurbits, Grape and Potato have been modified. These changes have been made to both the Federal and State labels, including California. Valent is currently out of any old Belay labeled product and will not be producing any additional material with that label. We are currently in production of Belay with the new label. Belay produced after April 1, 2017 will have a new label on the container and can be distinguished from the old labeled product by its new color scheme (blue background white print).
