Provado Vine Weevil Killer and Provado Ultimate Bug Killer are not affected by the recent restrictions, which will apply for two years. .
It's a bit complicated,but three neonicotinoid insecticides have been banned, including one (imidacloprid) that used to be used in these two products, but the formula was changed a couple of years ago, to an ingredient called thiacloprid. The main impact will be on the agricultural industry, where imidacloprid is widely used.
The only 'domestic' product affected is Provado Lawn Grub Killer.
