Dear Dr. Anthony St.J. Green:

Re:  Registration of the Pesticide Product Bio-Path Cockroach Control Chamber
(EPA Reg. No. 64296-3)

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has approved your
application to register the referenced pesticide product for use in New York
State as a biological/microbial insecticide for the control of cockroaches in
residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional areas.  This product is
classified as a general use pesticide.

The active ingredient Metarhizium anisopliae is a new active ingredient.  We
reviewed all of the information submitted in support of this registration
request, and have determined that proper use of this product is not likely to
result in significant health or environmental risks.

The approved label is the federally registered label as submitted.  Enclosed,
for your records, is the Certificate of Pesticide Registration and a copy of
the stamped-accepted label.
