Bayer Announces Label Improvements for Temprid SC

Supplier News

The label now includes expanded directions for bed bug treatment and outdoor application.

| July 24, 2013

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.  — 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) 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.”

Available as a suspension concentrate, one gallon of the product contains 2 pounds of imidacloprid and 1 pound of beta-cyfluthrin. Temprid SC is available in a 400 milliliter bottle, and is designed for application in and around buildings and structures, as well as on established landscape ornamentals around residential and commercial properties.
