PMPs in Hawaii can now take on termites with Altriset from Syngenta

To continue offering effective termite control to pest management professionals (PMPs) across the country, Syngenta is excited to announce Altriset® termiticide has been registered in Hawaii. PMPs throughout the Hawaiian Islands can now take advantage of the latest innovation in liquid termiticide chemistry to deliver long-lasting control.

“For years, Altriset has provided excellent termite control for PMPs in the continental U.S.,” explained Marshall Gaster, market manager for Professional Pest Management (PPM) at Syngenta. “We’re thrilled to finally bring the efficacy of Altriset to our customers dealing with challenging subterranean and drywood termites on the Hawaiian Islands.”

While Altriset has been registered as a restricted use pesticide in Hawaii, it is the only liquid soil-applied termiticide currently federally registered by the Environmental Protection Agency under its Reduced-Risk Pesticide Program1 with no signal word on the label. Other product features include:

  • A non-repellent formulation that stops feeding within hours of exposure
  • Delayed toxicity, which means exposed termites that stopped feeding can still aggregate in groups, increasing the spread of Altriset among colony members
  • Timely control that lasts: trial observations saw 100% termite mortality within seven days when Altriset-exposed termites were placed with non-exposed termites2
  • A low impact on non-target beneficial organisms, such as honey bees and earthworms, when used in accordance with the label
  • One of the lowest use rates per finished gallon

“Termites are stressful for homeowners, no matter where they live,” said Eric Paysen, technical services manager for PPM at Syngenta. “With this new Altriset registration, PMPs in Hawaii can now feel confident with a fast-acting solution that can help ease their customers’ concerns.”

1 A reduced risk pesticide use is defined as one which may reasonably be expected to accomplish one or more of the following; (1) reduces pesticide risks to human health; (2) reduces pesticide risks to non-target organisms; (3) reduces the potential for contamination of valued, environmental resources, or (4) broadens adoption of IPM or makes it more effective. Altriset qualifies under one or more of the above criteria.
