FMC Introduces Totality Wood Treatment

Supplier News

The new insecticide offers enhanced profitability with formulation, application and package efficiencies, FMC reports.

| July 18, 2014


PHILADELPHIA – FMC Corporation announced the debut of Totality Wood Treatment, a new insecticide offering enhanced profitability with formulation, application and package efficiencies. Compared to competitive products, the new Totality Wood Treatment employs an easy-to-mix, easy-to-apply, and easy-to-store formulation with the termite-fighting power of FMC bifenthrin, according to FMC. It is now available through authorized FMC distributor partners.

A liquid formulation that mixes easily in water in cold and hot temperatures, Totality Wood Treatment repels and kills termites and other wood destroying organisms (WDO). It can be lifted and stored easily, and eliminates the need for specialized mixing equipment. Totality cleans out easily which minimizes wear on expensive equipment. Totality’s label specifies one coat to timber and timber-based products while competitive products require two coats, allowing pest management professionals (PMPs) to save up to 20 minutes per wood treatment service, FMC reports.

“PMPs asked us for an alternative to existing wood treatment products with the potential to enhance profitability,” said Steve Mora, Insecticide Product Manager, FMC. “Totality Wood Treatment offers efficiency in wood treatment applications, allowing for potentially more treatments per day. PMPs asked for it and FMC delivered.”  

Totality Wood Treatment provides wood protection for pre-construction, post-construction, industrial pressure treatment, and existing WDO infestation control services. It is labeled for drywood and subterranean termites (including Formosan termites), carpenter ants, powder-post beetles, deathwatch beetles, old-house borers and others.

Totality is sold in quart bottles for easy handling and storage. It employs a standard dilution rate of 3.2 fluid ounces per gallon of water. Each quart produces 10 finished gallons for wood protection applications. Always read and follow label directions.
