Choose a single solution for multiple pest control benefits

As the threat of pests looms with warm weather around the corner, customers are counting on you to control a variety of pests emerging in their yards, businesses and homes. Thankfully, Tandem® insecticide from Syngenta can be your one-stop solution for control of more than 90 insects found in and around structures.

Control from cupboard to curb

Tandem features more than 50 application sites on its label to help control pests like ants, cockroaches, flies, pantry pests and even turf and landscape pests. It can be used indoors, outdoors, in food-handling establishments and within modes of transportation like trucks and buses. Tandem can also be applied in the following ways to reach pests where they’re hiding:

  • Power spray
  • Coarse, low-pressure spray      
  • Paint-on
  • Mist
  • Crack-and-crevice
  • Spot
  • Expandable foam into voids or via fixed, in-wall delivery systems

  • ​​​​​​​

    Two modes of action for a double assault on pests

    Tandem gets its broad-spectrum control from two active ingredients with different modes of action:

    • Lambda-cyhalothrin is contained within thousands of iCAP™ technology, which are designed to be picked up by insects as they crawl over treated surfaces. Smaller microcaps release the active ingredient immediately for quick control, while larger microcaps release it slowly over time for more lasting control.
    • The systemic activity in thiamethoxam enables Tandem to be quickly absorbed by plants to control honeydew-producing insects like aphids and mealy bugs which, in turn, helps control ants that eat the honeydew.
