PASADENA, Texas — Control Solutions, Inc. announced EPA approval of FUSE, a new liquid termiticide/insecticide. EPA registration was granted on Nov. 7, 2013. CSI says that FUSE offers a unique formulation of two non-repellent active ingredients, imidadoprid and fipronil. "FUSE is labeled for termite and perimeter pest control applications," said Marie Knox, PCO technical manager at Control Solutions.

"The addition of FUSE is an example of how we at CSI strive to provide what our customers want and need: truly innovative and effective products. We are proud to offer PMPs the highest quality termiticide products available and to offer a true choice when it comes to product selection," said Curtis Clark, executive vice president of Control Solutions.

FUSE will be added to the list of termiticide products offered by CSI, which include imidacloprid-based Dominion 2L and fipronil-powered Taurus SC. CSI liquid termiticide products are formulated and packaged at CSI's state-of-the-art production facility in Pasadena, Texas, the firm says.

FUSE offers PMPs an option for structural protection from termites as well as a non-pyrethroid option for perimeter pest control, CSI reports. The label offers application flexibility for both termiticide treatments as well as exterior perimeter pest control treatments.
