Mosquitoes are not only an annoyance, but can also pose a health threat. Are you prepared to provide customers with protection against these disease-transmitting pests? By arming yourself with the SecureChoice℠ Mosquito Assurance Program from Syngenta, you’ll be ready to tackle this pest threat head-on.
The right tools
An important component to effective mosquito control is having the right products to get the job done. The SecureChoice Mosquito Assurance Program is a comprehensive approach to guaranteed mosquito control on a 60-day treatment cycle.
This program recommends the combination of an adulticide, Demand® CS insecticide, with Archer® insect growth regulator (IGR). Containing long-lasting iCAP™ technology, Demand CS adheres to pests and is easily transferred to other pests, helping to control insects on contact. Archer works by halting mosquito larvae development before they develop into adult mosquitoes. Using an IGR with an adulticide will help further suppress mosquito populations throughout the season.
Additionally, purchases of these products help you qualify for the 2019 PestPartners℠ 365 Program, which will instantly earn you rebates on Syngenta Professional Pest Management products for the rest of the year. Act now – you only have until April 30, 2019 to qualify for yearlong rebates.
The right knowledge
Equipping customers with mosquito prevention tips will ensure your hard work doesn’t go to waste. If homeowners aren’t doing their part to make their homes less conducive to mosquito breeding, your efforts can be ineffective. Here are a few tips to pass on to homeowners about how to reduce standing water on their properties, which can be ideal for mosquito breeding:
- Clean gutters frequently. Obstructed water flow can create standing water.
- Fill any tree holes or tree stumps with sealant or mortar to prevent water accumulation.
- Throw away or store items that can collect standing water.
All of these tips and additional materials for homeowners are free to download on our website.
