Syngenta North America has received approval from California to expand use of its Arilon insecticide, providing more options for Pest Management Professionals (PMPs).

“PMPs in California need products that can consistently meet their unique business challenges,” Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing for Syngenta Professional Pest Management at Syngenta, North America, said. “With the expanded Arilon label, PMPs in the state can expect the same great results with a wider range of pests to control, including fleas, flies and stink bugs.”

Arilon, an insecticide that’s main ingredient is indoxacarb, combines non-repellency and a slight delay in insect mortality. This unique mode of action helps ensure comprehensive control of pests within 24 to 48 hours.

“With the diverse range of pests to control in California, PMPs need solutions that fit their business needs,” Steve Dorer, marketing manager for PPM at Syngenta, North America, said. “Because of the flexibility and extended control of Arilon, PMPs in California can avoid costly changes between processes and equipment when treating for multiple pests.”

Pests that can be treated with Arilon include beetles, boxelder bugs, carpenter bees, centipedes, earwigs, fleas, flies, grasshoppers, kudzu bugs, millipedes, pantry pests, silverfish, springtails, stink bugs and wasps.
