Label now includes expanded directions for bed bug treatment and outdoor application
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (July 24, 2013)
– Environmental Science
, a division of Bayer CropScience LP
, has received a letter of acceptance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to add improved directions to the Temprid® SC
product label. Temprid SC, a broad-spectrum insecticide, offers pest management professionals (PMPs) effective control of more than 50 listed pests – including stink bugs, bed bugs, spiders, ants, aphids, mealy bugs and scale insects.
“PMPs are increasingly looking for effective solutions for a wide range of pest control needs,” said Norman Barclift, Marketing Manager, General Insect Control for Bayer. “Temprid SC continues to offer a flexible label that simplifies business operations and allows PMPs to best serve their customers, especially now with our new expanded outdoor uses and improved bed bug directions.”
The Temprid label was expanded earlier this year to include improved claims for bed bug control and adding control of brown marmorated stink bugs and kudzu bugs.
Temprid SC’s new label improvements include the following directions and application claims:
- Directions for bed bug control now include heat treatment information, nymphal control from residues and directions for treatment of luggage.
- Improvements to the outdoor perimeter directions to allow pin stream applications, to allow treatment of eaves & soffits protected from rainfall, and to allow broader treatment of vertical surfaces as long as they are not above an impervious surface.
- Addition of new occasional invader pests, including brown marmorated stink bugs, kudzu bugs and seed bugs, as well as improved power sprayer directions.
“We are continually pursuing scientific advancements in order to provide new innovations to our customers,” said Byron Reid, Senior Principle Scientist for Bayer. “With these additions to the Temprid SC label, we strengthen our commitment to providing PMPs with a holistic solution for their every-day services.”
In the past few years, Temprid has emerged as the No. 1 choice of professionals for combatting difficult to control pests like bed bugs.
Available as a suspension concentrate, one gallon of the product contains 2 lbs. of imidacloprid and 1 lb. of beta-cyfluthrin. Temprid SC is available in a 400ml bottle, and is designed for application in and around buildings and structures, as well as on established landscape ornamentals around residential and commercial properties.
