Bayer Announces Suspend® PolyZone™ is now registered in California

Significant Technology Innovation Allows Up To 90 Days of Control

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (July 19, 2012)Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, announces Suspend® PolyZone™, a longer-lasting, controlled-release pest control technology, is now approved for use in California.

The new technology received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) last year and has been on the market since February. California’s Department of Pesticide Regulation granted approval for use of Suspend PolyZone in the state as of July 9.

The proprietary polymer in Suspend PolyZone provides a long-lasting shield against weather, irrigation, and mechanical abrasion. Suspend PolyZone  provides up to 90 days of residual outdoor perimeter control lasting up to 30 percent longer than microcap formulations.

“PMPs in California are going to love this product,” said Jason Carpenter, Owner and President of Environmental Pest Management in Columbus, Ohio. “I’ve been using Suspend PolyZone for the past few months, and I’m already pleased with the performance; the long-term residual will help me reduce my retreat rates and run a more efficient business.”

Suspend PolyZone controls a wide variety of pests, including indoor general household pests, outdoor perimeter pests, and wood-infesting pests.

“Bayer is dedicated to developing long-lasting solutions that provide Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) with the most advanced and effective tools available,” said Norman Barclift, Suspend PolyZone product manager for Environmental Science. “Suspend PolyZone has a unique formulation technology that enables controlled release, extending the intervals between services to help PMPs increase their profitability by saving them time and money.”
