Altriset termiticide is now labeled for control of drywood termites according to a recent announcement by Syngenta Professional Pest Management. 

Altriset was already labeled for control of eastern subterranean and Formosan termites to offer a better-rounded product for Pest Management Professionals (PMPs).

“We understand PMPs can’t take a chance on termite control that doesn’t meet their business needs,” Steve Dorer, professional pest management market manager for Syngenta in North America, said. “With the addition of drywood termites to the Altriset label, the product better meets the needs of PMPs where these pests are problematic.”

The new label now has an expanded application rate range option for a larger amount of active ingredient per finished gallon of solution. The finished solution has gone from 0.05 percent active ingredient to 0.1 percent active ingredient. Altriset has an excellent environmental profile which means it is sensitive to beneficial soil organisms, like earthworms.

“Homes are often the biggest investment of the customers that PMPs service,” Pat Willenbrock professional pest management head of marketing for Syngenta in North America, said. “With more termites on the label, Altriset can be the solution for PMPs looking to help customers protect those investments.”
