“When pests find their way into locations containing food sources, they can multiply quickly,” said Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing for Professional Pest Management (PPM) for Syngenta in North America. “With the enhanced food-handling label for Archer, PMPs can now expect to see the same great population-control results from the product in more situations where food is handled.”
Archer interrupts the development of juvenile stages of targeted insects such as ants, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, litter beetles and flying insects to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults. In addition to food and nonfood storage and preparation establishments, it also can be used indoors, around buildings, in moist breeding areas such as mulch or bedding and in standing waters found in gutters, drains and pools.
Outdoors, Archer can be paired with Demand® CS insecticide to control mosquitoes as part of the SecureChoice™ Mosquito Assurance Program and fleas and ticks as part of the SecureChoice Flea and Tick Assurance Program. The Demand CS + Archer Multipak, which serves as the foundation for both programs, also can provide PMPs with a significant reduction in mosquito, flea, tick and other pest populations.
“In an industry where customers rely on flexible pest control treatments, PMPs need products that can be part of a comprehensive pest control program,” said Steve Dorer, market manager for PPM at Syngenta, North America. “Whether as a preventive treatment for a home or as a residual application for commercial kitchens, Archer offers flexibility and proven results that PMPs can rely on for their businesses.”
