EPA has assessed the risks of bensulide and reached an Interim Reregistration Eligibility Decision (IRED) for this organophosphate (OP) pesticide. With the risk mitigation measure required, bensulide fits into its own 'risk cup'--its individual, aggregate risks are within acceptable levels. Bensulide also is eligible for reregistration, pending a full reassessment of the cumulative risk from all Ops. Bensulide residues in food and drinking water do not pose risk concerns. With mitigation limiting homeowners' and childrens' exposure via home lawns and other turf, bensulide's worker and ecological risks also will be below levels of concern for reregistration.
