Kennedy Space Center has 7.8 million square feet of building area and is home to more than 16,000 employees who eat and work at the facility daily. The center has virtually every type of commercial structure a pest management professional could encounter. One of the center’s newest construction projects is a seven-story, 200,000-square-foot administration building. To tackle the important task of protecting the 43,000-square-foot foundation of the structure from Florida’s aggressive termite population, Glenn Willis selected Altriset termiticide from Syngenta.

Florida is a state with significant termite pressure. As a result, particular attention was paid by those performing the treatment to those locations where termites commonly infest structures.

Key Features

  • Non-repellent formulation stops feeding within hours of exposure because the termites’ mouthparts become paralyzed shortly after contacting treated soil and damage ceases soon after
  • Since it is a delayed toxicant, the exposed termites that have stopped feeding can still walk, groom and aggregate in groups for an extended period of time -- this increases the chances of mutual grooming and body-to-body contact and such post-exposure behavior and interactions enhance Altriset spread among colony members
  • Altriset provides timely control that lasts -- laboratory observations showed that when non-exposed (recipients) termite workers of R. hesperus were put together with exposed termites (donors), 100% mortality of both exposed and unexposed groups was observed within 7 days.
  • Altriset has low impact on non-target beneficial organisms, such as honey bees and earthworms, when used in accordance with the label.

Key Benefits

  • When used in accordance with the label, Altriset controls termites in less than three months and provides long-lasting residual structural protection
  • Altriset is the first liquid soil-applied termiticide to be registered as reduced-risk for use on termites by the U.S. EPA under its Reduced-Risk Pesticide Program.
  • Altriset has an excellent environmental profile, with one of the lowest use-rates per finished gallon
