Professional Products recently announced that DuPont
™ Altriset™ termiticide has been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and state registration applications have been submitted.
™ Altriset™, the first soil-applied liquid termiticide launched in almost a decade, is in a class of chemistry with a mode of action like no other termite control product.
Laboratory and field study results show that termites stop feeding within hours of treatment and are eliminated for critical long-term structural protection. Once affected by Altriset™, termites will begin to exhibit increased aggregation, enhanced grooming and contact with other colony members for hours. This increased colony interaction is a key reason why Altriset™ is so effective. Also, Altriset™ offers an excellent environmental profile. DuPont
™ Altriset™ is the first liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk by the U.S. EPA.
