James V. Aidala quoted in “US EPA Releases New Neonicotinoid Labels” article in Agrow World Crop Protection News.

An article reporting on the newly released pesticide labels restricting some applications of four neonicotinoid insecticides included comments from James V. Aidala: “While the revisions appear to tackle the consistency issue, it is far from clear if the new language will be more easily enforced, says Jim Aidala, a senior government consultant for the law firm, Bergeson & Campbell PC (Washington, DC). The labels have ‘a lot of ‘do-nots’ on them’, he tells Agrow. ‘It is essentially all about being a good neighbour and using common sense, but how that is all ultimately implemented and enforced in the field remains to be seen.’ “
