As hot summer weather tapers off into cooler temperatures, it can be tempting to assume heavy pest pressure is also waning on your accounts. However, insects like ticks, multi-colored Asian lady beetles and cluster flies can still be active threats during the fall season — and even into the winter, in some cases. Thankfully, Demand® CS insecticide from Syngenta has you covered with a broad-spectrum label, unique formulation and proven pest control results.
Technology that controls pests now and later
Demand CS offers up to 90 days of control of more than 30 labeled pests, including ticks and fall invader insects. The secret to its long-lasting residual control is the power of iCAP™ technology, which sets it apart from other microencapsulated formulations on the market:
- Smaller microcaps release the active ingredient quickly for immediate control
- Larger microcaps remain intact and release the active ingredient later for residual control
- Microcaps can be easily passed to other insects for more complete control
The longevity of Demand CS was proven in a trial conducted at Virginia Tech. Mosquitoes were exposed to Demand CS and Suspend® PolyZone® insecticides for five minutes, and mortality was evaluated one hour after the five-minute exposure. After eight weeks, applications of Demand CS resulted in more dead mosquitoes above the 70 percent threshold than applications of Suspend PolyZone.

Get a leg up on fall pests
To address the rise of tick-borne diseases across the U.S., the SecureChoice℠ Tick Assurance Program features Demand CS for guaranteed outdoor tick control on a 90-day treatment cycle. The program’s application recommendations have been thoroughly tested by technical experts for tick control results that can help you put your customers at ease.
The mode of action in Demand CS also makes it ideal for controlling fall invaders, which can stain or produce foul odors inside customers’ homes. While other microcaps can quickly deteriorate from UV light or pH extremes, iCAP technology has dual-walled microcaps that protect the active ingredient from these harmful conditions. This enables extended residual activity to help control fall invaders throughout the winter.
Don’t get complacent: choose Demand CS to stay ahead of fall pests and keep your customers cozy, carefree and pest-free. For more information, please visit www.SyngentaPMP.com/DemandCS.
