How do we know that the treatment you will be using will be safe?

The registration and regulation of tebufenozide (Mimic) and Btk required studies to determine potential environmental and human health effects. Most studies found that there were no significant negative effects of tebufenozide or Btk on non-target organisms (e.g., mammals, fish, birds, or aquatic invertebrates). In studies where negative effects have been reported, those effects were minimal and short-term.
