GREENSBORO, N.C. ? Syngenta announced the launch of Advion MicroFlow insect bait, a dry flowable bait that can help control pests like ants and cockroaches in hard-to-reach areas.
Advion MicroFlow features the same active ingredient, indoxacarb, and targeted MetaActive effect found in other Advion products. With a highly attractive bait matrix, it effectively controls target pests like ants, cockroaches, crickets, pantry pests and more without impacting nontarget organisms. It’s also milled to a fine particle size, allowing it to reach deep within cracks, crevices and hard-to-reach areas inaccessible to gel baits or liquids, Syngenta reports..
“We’re excited to add this dry flowable bait to our pest control portfolio,” said Marshall Gaster, head of marketing for Professional Pest Management (PPM) at Syngenta. “Because it can reach deep harborages and voids with flexible use rates, Advion MicroFlow will be a complementary tool for cleanout and maintenance treatment protocols.”
Advion MicroFlow can be used anywhere dust products are normally used, including residential multifamily homes, commercial spaces and food-handling establishments. It features a powerful secondary transfer effect, which allows target insects to pass the active ingredient along to nestmates. Smaller-sized particles adhere to the exoskeletons of pests active in treatment zones, enabling them to carry it back to their harborages where other pests consume the particles during grooming.
It also features easy-to-use packaging designed for PMPs on the job. Its 8-ounce jar can attach directly onto an Exacticide power duster. Additionally, included scoops are sized to the opening of popular bulb and bellows dusters to help prevent spills.
“Advion MicroFlow can benefit any pest management program by reaching deep within harborage sites that may not be visible or easily accessible,” said Eric Paysen, Ph.D., technical services manager for PPM at Syngenta. “This means PMPs can make a big impact with a small application, providing their customers with more thorough control.”
