Use up your Ficam D, says Bayer

Following changes to the Ficam® D label, pest controllers are being reminded by BPCA member Bayer to use up any stocks with old labels, displaying HSE 4829, by 25 July 2019.

Alternatively, you can replace the label on your old stock with the newer label available directly from Bayer.
