Take out ticks this fall with the SecureChoice Tick Assurance Program

As fall approaches, outdoor activities can lead to increased contact with ticks, especially in leaf litter where ticks like to hide. These public health pests carry diseases that can endanger your customers. In fact, cases of Lyme disease, carried by ticks, have tripled in the U.S. in the past two decades.1

Thankfully, the SecureChoice℠ Tick Assurance Program from Syngenta offers field-tested procedures and protocols that can provide guaranteed outdoor control of this pest. The program features the power of Demand® CS insecticide, which helps reduce outdoor tick populations on a 90-day treatment cycle. 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).

The effectiveness of Demand CS
Demand CS with iCAP technology™ is uniquely formulated to effectively address tick infestations. The microcaps in Demand CS adhere to pests’ waxy cuticles as they travel along a treated surface, which helps ensure lasting control. The small microcaps in the iCAP technology activate immediately for quick control, and the larger ones activate later to offer residual control that can last for up to 90 days.
