Bayer Announces Spring Savings Program

Discounts on Maxforce®, Suspend®, Tempo® and DeltaGard® available now through May 29th

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (May 4, 2011) – Environmental Science, a business unit of Bayer CropScience LP, has announced its 2011 spring savings program, offering pest management professionals (PMPs) instant savings on a number of popular Bayer products. The promotion runs through May 29, 2011 and gives PMPs the chance to save on a variety of Bayer products including Maxforce®, Suspend® SC, Tempo® Ultra SC and DeltaGard® G.

“These great discounts are easy to take advantage of,” says Gordon Morrison, Maxforce marketing manager for Environmental Science.   “All PMPs need to do is ask for the discounts from their local Bayer distributor at the point of purchase.”

Suspend SC contains DeltaGard brand Deltamethrin, a third generation suspension concentrate pyrethroid.  DeltaGard is a single pure isomer, which ensures each and every molecule of active ingredient is available for maximum killing power.  Suspend SC is a versatile insecticide approved for a wide variety of uses including indoor and outdoor, residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional applications. Suspend provides fast knockdown and broad-spectrum control of more than 100 pests, including bed bugs and many other public health pests.

Tempo SC Ultra’s ß-Crystal™ technology provides quick knockdown of more than 100 pests.  With more than 130,000 microcrystals of beta-cyfluthrin per square inch, Tempo offers 14 times more coverage than microencapsulated products.  With a range of different sized ß-Crystals, the smaller crystals penetrate the insect cuticle quickly for fast control, while the larger crystals provide longer residual.

DeltaGard G delivers the strength of DeltaGard brand deltamethrin in a water-activated carrier for effective, residual control of a wide variety of crawling pests, including ants, spiders, ticks and cockroaches.  The small, dense particles are easy to spread with a hand-held or walk behind spreader and produce virtually no dust or odor.  The granules provide excellent penetration and coverage in thick ground cover, such as mulch or thatch, delivering more of the insecticide where it is needed most. When exposed to moisture, the carrier quickly breaks apart, releasing the active ingredient without staining surfaces or damaging plants.

Maxforce Quantum provides fast and effective broad spectrum control against many ant species, including Argentine, Pharaoh’s, Ghost, Black garden, Odorous house, and Crazy ants.  The key to Maxforce Quantum’s long-lasting residual lies in its hydroscopic formula that retains and absorbs moisture.  Quantum’s clear formula will remain attractive for up to three months, actually absorbing moisture in many outdoor environments, adding to its effectiveness.  Formulated with a low dose of imidacloprid, Quantum attracts ants with its Simply Irresistible™ bait matrix and features the exclusive Domino Effect™, a delayed action kill whereby foraging ants bring the bait back to the colony.  Quantum delivers high performance results while maintaining the effective, low impact pest control that PMPs expect of Maxforce and require for sound IPM programs.

Labeled for broadcast and mound treatments, Maxforce FC Fire Ant Bait, with the active ingredient fipronil, can be applied to home lawns, golf courses, sod farms, commercial and recreational turf, and landscape beds. And because the bait features the exclusive Maxforce Domino Effect ™, a delayed action kill whereby fire ants share the active ingredient throughout the colony, Maxforce FC Fire Ant Bait can be used to target mounds in hard-to-reach areas, such as under sidewalks and driveways.
