Get timely, targeted termite control with Altriset

Your customers expect termite control that can provide long-term structural protection for their most valuable assets – their homes — without sacrificing the well-being of their surroundings. Altriset® termiticide from Syngenta features a fast-acting mode of action and excellent environmental profile to quickly control eastern subterranean, Formosan and drywood termites.

Peace of mind for you and your customers

Altriset is the first liquid soil-applied termiticide to be registered as reduced-risk for use on termites by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under its Reduced-Risk Pesticide Program.* When used in accordance with the label, it has a low impact on non-target beneficial organisms like earthworms and honey bees. Altriset also features one of the lowest termiticide use rates per finished gallon.

Stop termites in their tracks

Altriset is able to halt termite feeding after only a few hours of exposure. While termites’ mouthparts become paralyzed shortly after contacting the treated soil, Altriset also increases termites’ natural social behavior. This means termites demonstrate more walking, grooming and aggregating with other termites to help spread Altriset throughout the colony for thorough, long-term control.

Altriset doesn’t stop at immediate termite control. In a USDA-Forest Service concrete slab test,1 Altriset demonstrated excellent performance for nine consecutive years at each of the test sites in Florida, Arizona, Mississippi and South Carolina. In Mississippi, the most notoriously difficult site for a termiticide to be successful, Altriset achieved 100 percent control for nine years in a row.

Exceed your customers’ expectations by giving them a termite-free environment with Altriset. For more information, visit www.SyngentaPMP.com/Altriset.
