Confidently tackle ticks with the SecureChoice Tick Assurance Program

The threat of ticks continues to be disruptive to homeowners, especially when they spend time outside. Cases of Lyme disease, which can be carried by ticks, tripled in the U.S. in the past two decades1, proving it’s more important than ever to adopt an effective and trustworthy treatment plan.

That’s why the experts at Syngenta have done the research for you, developing the SecureChoiceSM Tick Assurance Program to take the guesswork out of tick control – guaranteed.

Featuring field-tested procedures and protocols, the program can provide guaranteed control by reducing outdoor tick populations on a 90-day treatment cycle. All you need to do is apply Demand® CS insecticide according to the treatment protocol. If applications fail to provide adequate reduction of outdoor tick populations during the specified treatment period, Syngenta will provide the appropriate quantity of Demand CS to cover the retreatment(s).

Tried and true: Why Demand CS works

Powered by the active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin along with iCAP technology™, Demand CS is formulated to quickly knockdown ticks and provide long-lasting control. The multi-sized microcaps in Demand CS adhere to pests’ waxy cuticles as they travel along a treated surface. The small microcaps activate immediately for quick control, while the larger ones activate later to offer residual control that can last up to 90 days.

Advice from the experts

Dr. Nicky Gallagher, regional head of research and development for Syngenta Professional Solutions, shares how to further enhance tick control with proper prevention strategies and by performing a tick drag.
