Manage cockroach mischief with advanced cockroach solutions

The German cockroach is one of the most common and resilient pests in urban environments. In addition to demonstrating behavioral aversion to certain bait ingredients, German cockroaches have shown resistance to 43 active ingredients1, ultimately making your jobs more difficult. To address these challenges, Syngenta offers a portfolio of effective cockroach solutions that feature unique modes of action and highly attractive matrices that can be used together as part of a bait rotation strategy.

A trio of tested options

Syngenta offers three gel bait options to give you access to differentiated formulations, proven results and more:

Advion® Evolution Cockroach Gel Bait:

  • Bait matrix is highly attractive to cockroaches, leading to faster mortality
  • Contains indoxacarb with MetaActive™ technology, which only activates once ingested by insects to provide targeted control of all prevailing cockroach species
  • Can be used as a clean-out treatment for high-density cockroach infestations
Optigard® Cockroach Gel Bait:
  • Features a unique active ingredient, emamectin benzoate
  • Mode of action affects cockroaches at two different target sites
  • Is faster-acting than abamectin baits
Advion Cockroach Gel Bait:
  • The number one cockroach gel bait on the market
  • Combines a highly attractive, proprietary gel formulation with the non-repellent active ingredient indoxacarb
  • MetaActive technology targets all prevailing cockroach species, including German, American, smokybrown, oriental and more

Rotate baits for optimal control

Cockroaches know a lot about flavor, which is why it's important to rotate gel baits to help manage potential aversion and resistance. The active ingredients in Syngenta cockroach solutions allow them to be used as part of a recommended three-month rotation, which matches the average life cycle of a German cockroach.

By strategically rotating these products, you can help provide your customers with environments free from the threat of cockroaches. For more information, please visit www.SyngentaPMP.com/CockroachSolutions.
