Good news for BASF

In a recent post I noted that fipronil, the active ingredient in Termidor and other products sold or licensed by BASF Corporation, was about to go off patent.  In today's article by Dan Moreland of PCT it is reported that the judge has set a July 2011 court date, effectively buying BASF some breathing room for its patent.

We'll just have to wait another year or more to see whatever big waves will take place in the termite control business when generic fipronil hits the market.
