GREENSBORO, N.C. – Syngenta Professional Pest Management (PPM) announced that Tandem insecticide is now labeled to control bed bugs. With this label update, pest management professionals (PMPs) now have a new tool for battling bed bugs.

“Based on our years of research and experience working alongside our customers, we have developed a deep understanding that PMPs need effective products to control challenging pests,” said Bob Goglia, head of marketing for Syngenta PPM in North America. “With this addition to the label, PMPs can now rely on Tandem for a fast knockdown and long-lasting control of bed bugs.”

A 2013 survey conducted by the National Pest Management Association and the University of Kentucky found that 99.6 percent of U.S. PMPs have encountered a bed bug infestation in the past year, compared to less than 25 percent prior to 2000.

“Bed bugs have become a much greater threat over the past few years with many cities around the country experiencing an unpleasant increase in bed bug activity,” said ElRay Roper, technical services manager for Syngenta PPM in North America. “With its dual modes of action and long-term control, our tests show Tandem is an effective tool for successfully controlling bed bugs.”

Tandem, which already controls more than 90 other common insects and pests, is powered by two active ingredients, lambda-cyhalothrin and thiamethoxam. It also is formulated with iCAP technology to ensure quick knockdown and residual control.

PMPs can view the full product label and a list of states where it is applicable on the Syngenta website at www.SyngentaPMP.com/Tandem. PMPs applying Tandem for bed bug control should make sure the bottle they are using has bed bugs on the label when treating for these pests. The new label will be easy to spot as it carries the new logo shown below.
