This product was being sold by Environmental Factor as a BioStimulant on their website for years. They were using and selling it as an Unregistered Pesticide (illegally), just like they were doing with Neem Oil. Now that the Ministry of Environment is clamping down on their Deceit, they are registering it.
Don't bother with this product, it is useless. The shelf life is also very limited.
How do they get away with registering products that are not effective, unless they lie about the Field Test Results.
Would someone who pushed for a Cosmetic Pesticide Ban in Ontario Lie in order to sell their own products as a replacement?????
They also received Ontario Grant money to field test this product if you can believe it.

Description of Instrument:
Liquid Corn Gluten is a new active ingredient contained in a pesticide product that is proposed for classification in Ontario.
Under the federal Pest Control Products Act, all pesticides destined for use in Canada must undergo a federal registration review including efficacy and human and environmental concerns.
In Ontario, the Pesticides Act stipulates that all federally registered pesticides must be further classified in Ontario before it becomes legal for sale and use.
• PCP registration: 30039
Class 5 pesticides are federally designated as Domestic products.
Under Ontario's cosmetic pesticides ban, homeowners can use Class 5 or 6 products containing Class 11 pesticides to manage pests in lawns and gardens.
The Ministry of the Environment is proposing to add Liquid Corn Gluten as a Class 11 pesticide (biopesticides and certain lower risk pesticides) for cosmetic uses under the ban. Biopesticides are those designated by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency. Lower risk pesticides have characteristics such as low toxicity to humans, minimal impact to the environment, and act in a non-toxic way in controlling intended pests
For additional information about classification of pesticide products in Ontario, please refer to the attached description of the provincial classes under Additional Information.
