Syngenta Professional Pest Management (PPM) announced Zyrox® fly granular bait was registered in the state of California. Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) in California can now take advantage of the new active ingredient in Zyrox that can serve as an effective resistance management tool in urban, rural and commercial markets.
“We understand that PMPs need products to work where they are conducting their businesses,” said Gregg Wisniewski, marketing manager for Syngenta PPM in North America. “With this new state registration for Zyrox, PMPs in California can increase the breadth of their business offerings with a novel fly control product.”
The active ingredient in Zyrox, cyantraniliprole, affects the muscular system of a fly to provide quick and efficient control, resulting in fewer callbacks for PMPs. Because the active ingredient is new to the market, Zyrox can be a powerful new tool to fight the growing problem of resistance. Formulated to be highly attractive, the bait matrix of Zyrox also helps ensure effective fly control at a low use rate (3.2 ounces per 1,000 square feet). Each pound of Zyrox can fill up to twice as many stations as competitor baits, which allows PMPs to save money by controlling flies with less bait.
Zyrox has been approved for use both indoors (in a bait station) and outdoors in the most common areas where high fly densities result in customer complaints. Outdoors it can be applied to areas used for storage of waste in refuse dumpsters that are fenced in or inaccessible to children and pets.
“Now that Zyrox has been registered in California, PMPs have a new tool to provide effective fly control for their accounts,” said Nicky Gallagher, technical services manager for Syngenta PPM in North America.
