ALTRISET Termiticide
Proving to be a Powerful Performer

APVMA approves 7 year protection label claim
in areas south of the Tropic of Capricorn

Syngenta is excited to announce that ALTRISET now has an approved 7 year protection claim on its label. ALTRISET has clearly proven its effectiveness in field trials and house trials, and the new 7 year label claim is the latest recognition for this revolutionary product that combines very effective termite killing power with an unrivalled safety profile.

On top of its amazing safety and efficacy profile, the extra reasons for using ALTRISET does not stop with the new 7 year label claim, it can also now be used for pre-construction application.

Since its launch ALTRISET has continued to grow in acceptance as the new standard in termite control with leading pest controllers. These new claims will only help to strengthen that position even further.

Dale Hudson, Business Manager, Syngenta Professional Pest Management said “The 7 year status demonstrates to the market that ALTRISET truly is the new benchmark for safe and effective termite treatments. And we haven’t stopped at 7 years, the trial sites are continuing to be monitored” Dale said.

ALTRISET field trails have been conducted since 2007 near Gosford NSW where a variety of test plots were installed to simulate conditions of vertical perimeter soil barriers around concrete slabs and horizontal perimeter preconstruction treatments under concrete slabs. The main termite species present at Gosford are Coptotermes acinaciformis, Heterotermes ferox and Nasutitermes exitiosus.

Trial sites have been assessed regularly since their installation for both termite activity and ALTRISET residual effect in the soil. Results have shown that ALTRISET treated soils remain free of termite activity while untreated controls demonstrate significant damage. Furthermore, samples of soils that were taken 7 years after treatment with ALTRISET achieved mortality of Coptotermes spp. termites within 14-21 days.

Dick Murray, Technical Manager, for Syngenta Professional Pest Management, stated “Trial sites clearly show that ALTRISET continues to perform at exceptional levels as is evident from the zero termite activity being detected on the treated plots and trial houses.”

Many pest controllers have been happy to keep using the same old products they have been using for years. But as products like ALTRISET come along with proven efficacy in combination with the superior safety aspects the market is looking for, then the swing towards them will continue.” Murray said.
