With more than 30,000 cases reported every year, the number of people with Lyme disease has tripled over the past two decades.1 Recently, there have been cases of rarer tick-borne diseases like the Powassan virus, a potentially deadly disease that can be transferred by a tick in as little as 15 minutes.2
With pests like ticks, fleas and mosquitoes being most active in the summer months, offering a reliable, cost-effective program to control these pests is key to keeping customers happy and pest-free outdoors. Technical experts at Syngenta developed SecureChoice™ assurance programs so you can protect your customers with confidence.
Keep pests at bay for better backyards
The SecureChoice Flea & Tick Assurance Program can reduce outdoor populations of fleas and ticks for up to 90 days. Similarly, the SecureChoice Mosquito Assurance Program, which includes a protocol of treatment on or about every 60 days, can help significantly reduce mosquito populations around your customers' homes or properties.
Both programs include the powerful combination of Demand® CS insecticide and Archer® insect growth regulator. Featuring iCAP™ technology, Demand CS easily adheres to pests’ waxy cuticles as they travel along a treated surface, which helps ensure both immediate and residual control. Archer offers a unique mode of action that interferes with the development process of eggs, larvae, pupae or nymphs to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults.
