With more than 30,000 cases reported every year (with studies suggesting the actual number is more likely around 300,000), 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 Tick Assurance Program and the SecureChoice Flea Assurance Program can reduce outdoor populations of ticks and fleas, respectively, 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.
All three programs include Demand® CS insecticide in their treatment protocol. 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. The mosquito and flea programs pair Demand CS with Archer® insect growth regulator, which 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.
