*In addition to these four products, EPA allows "distributor products" that are identical to the above products but have a different name, address, and an additional number to the registration number.
*EPA has no data in its files to show that the differences in the products (such as amount of active ingredient, spray, distance, and time to empty can) affect product effectiveness.
