Syngenta takes the bite out of fleas and ticks with new SecureChoice assurance program

To help Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) manage the threat of fleas and ticks, Syngenta has launched its new SecureChoice™ Flea and Tick Assurance Program. Similar to the SecureChoice Mosquito Assurance Program, this program provides a pest control assurance offering from Syngenta to PMPs for outdoor fleas and ticks. It also offers PMPs an additional, differentiated revenue-generating opportunity with their customers.

With the power of two proven products, the SecureChoice Flea and Tick Assurance Program can significantly reduce outdoor populations of fleas and ticks for up to 90 days. Demand® CS insecticide provides immediate and residual control of fleas and ticks, while Archer® insect growth regulator interrupts their reproductive cycles to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults.

“We’re proud to expand the SecureChoice brand and continue the trend of providing assurance to PMPs and homeowners of their pest control results for even more types of insects,” said Steve Dorer, market manager for Professional Pest Management (PPM) at Syngenta, North America. “Successfully introduced for mosquitoes last year, a SecureChoice assurance program now exists for fleas and ticks as well.”

PMPs can participate in the program by purchasing Demand CS and Archer between Jan. 1 and Nov. 30, 2016 (“Program Period”), and by making applications by Dec. 31, 2016. If applications of Demand CS and Archer fail to provide adequate reduction of outdoor flea and tick populations during the treatment period, Syngenta will provide the appropriate quantity of Demand CS and Archer to cover the necessary retreatment(s).

“Beyond being a nuisance, these pests pose serious threats to public health — ticks, for example, are vectors of Lyme disease,” said Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing for PPM at Syngenta, North America. “By launching the SecureChoice Flea and Tick Assurance Program, we’re helping PMPs identify ways to grow their business through a new service offering, which increases their value to customers.”
