AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: This notice announces EPA's order for the cancellation of the 
product, Biter Fighter, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. The 
cancellation was voluntarily requested by the registrant, Ticks and 
Mosquitoes, LLC., and accepted by EPA. This cancellation order follows 
a June 9, 2010 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the 
registrant to voluntarily cancel this product registration. In the June 
9, 2010 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing 
the cancellation, unless the Agency received substantive comments 
within the 30 day comment period that would merit its further review of 
this request, or unless the registrant withdrew his request. The Agency 
did not receive any comments on the notice. Further, the registrant did 
not withdraw his request. Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice 
a cancellation order granting the requested cancellation. Any 
distribution, sale, or use of the product subject to this cancellation 
order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, 
including any existing stocks provisions.

DATES: The cancellation is effective September 3, 2010.
