Few candidate termiticides are left in the pipeline, according to the 2011 USDA-FS termiticide report

Abstract

Candidate termiticides typically undergo a five-year evaluation at four field sites before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers them for registration. The tests are conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USDA-FS), which has a long history of evaluating termiticides for federal and state registration. In 2011, the USDA-FS managed and administered 14 agreements with product manufacturers as part of its ongoing termiticide testing program.
