The simplicity of one product, with the versatility and breadth of two active ingredients.

Tandem® insecticide combines the power of two proven active ingredients, lambda-cyhalothrin and thiamethoxam, to provide a double assault on pests with one product. Formulated with proprietary iCAP™ technology, Tandem provides quick knock down and long-lasting control of a broad range of pests both indoors and outdoors.

 

Increased control with systemic action

  

One of the most popular food sources for many ant species is honeydew, which is produced by homopterous insects such as scales, aphids and mealy bugs that feed on landscape vegetation. To control these insects, apply Tandem to either the soil beneath plants or to the foliage of plants. These non-repellent products move through the plant systemically to help control homopterous pests.

With cooling temperatures in the fall, you may begin to get more calls about spider control as the pests creep indoors to seek harborage for the winter. To effectively control spiders indoors and outdoors, you should consider an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to assess environments that may be conducive to spiders and appropriate treatments.  Read more »

Bedroom

Headboard

For control of bed bugs, apply as a spot, crack-and-crevice or void treatment behind attached headboards, baseboards, mirrors and picture frames, as well as around moldings, door frames, window frames, shelving and edges of carpet or other floor coverings. Do not use on bed linens, bed frames, mattresses, box springs, or other areas where human contact is common.

Researchers at Rutgers University1 have found that an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach can be an effective way to control bed bugs. For example, significant bed bug reduction can occur when a steam application is directed at bed bugs found on mattresses, box springs, bed frames and sofas, and then supplemented with a chemical application to labeled areas.
