Temprid SC Insecticide Receives Registration in California

Pest management professionals (PMPs) in California can now take advantage of the unsurpasses ant control that Temprid delivers.

Research Triangle Park, N.C. - Bayer Environmental Science, a business group of Bayer CropScience LP, has announced that TempridTM SC Insecticide is now registered and available for use in the state of California. Temprid is now registered in 48 states with registration pending in New York.

"This increased availability will now allow pest management professionals (PMPs) in California to take advantage of the unsurpassed ant control that Temprid delivers," says Eric Lentz, general insect control marketing manager for Bayer Environmental Science. "Temprid helps to reduce callbacks because it eliminates a major food source of ant populations, while at the same time providing effective residual control of perimeter pest in and around structures."

TempridTM SC's dual mode of action fuses two long-standing residual insecticides: βeta-cyfluthrin and imidacloprid. The result is unsurpassed ant control with quick knockdown and long residual control of more than 50 pests, including ants, spiders, cockroaches and other key perimeter pests. With its broad spectrum control and flexible label, Temprid is specially designed to be used both outdoors and indoors, setting it apart as a flexible perimeter product. It can be used in and around buildings and structures, as well as on established landscape ornamentals around residential and commercial properties.

In field trials conducted around the country, Temprid was shown to reduce callbacks for ant control by up to 60 percent when compared with the leading ant control product. Fewer callbacks lead to additional savings for PMPs, such as lower fuel and labor costs and more satisfied customers.

Available as a suspension concentrate, one gallon of the product contains 2 pounds of imidacloprid and 1 pound of βeta-cyfluthrin. It is packaged in 400 ml bottles and contains six bottles per case.
