GREENSBORO, N.C. – Syngenta Professional Pest Management (PPM) introduces Zyrox fly granular bait. It offers a new active ingredient that can provide Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) control of a common pest problem, while serving as an effective resistance management tool in urban, rural and commercial markets.

“We understand a PMP’s top priority is to get the job done right the first time,” said Nicky Gallagher, technical services manager for Syngenta PPM in North America. “The active ingredient in Zyrox, cyantraniliprole, was developed to work by affecting the muscular system of a fly to provide quick and efficient control, resulting in fewer callbacks for PMPs. Additionally, because the active ingredient is new to the market, Zyrox can be a powerful new tool to fight the growing problem of resistance.”
 
Formulated to be highly attractive, the bait matrix of Zyrox helps ensure effective fly control at a low use rate (3.2 ounces per 1,000 square feet). Each pound of Zyrox can fill up to twice as many stations as competitor baits, which allows PMPs to save money by controlling flies with less bait, Syngenta reports.

Zyrox has been approved for use both indoors (in a bait station) and outdoors in the most common areas where high fly densities result in customer complaints. Outdoors it can be applied to areas used for storage of waste in refuse dumpsters that are fenced in or inaccessible to children and pets around:
 
•    Restaurants
•    Taverns
•    Hotels
•    Grocery stores
•    Supermarkets
•    Bakeries
•    Warehouses
•    Sports complexes

Zyrox can also be applied to outdoor areas of commercial operations such as:
 
•    Canneries
•    Beverage and food processing plants
•    Kennels
•    Schools
•    Recycling plants
•    Zoos
•    Military installations 
 
For production animal accounts, Zyrox fills a critical resistance management gap for:
•    Poultry/broiler houses
•    Caged layer houses
•    Swine production structures
•    Livestock housing structures
•    Horse stables

PMPs can view the full product label and list of application sites at www.SyngentaPMP.com/Zyrox.

“Syngenta is excited to add Zyrox to its broad portfolio of pest control products and offer PMPs this fly control solution,” said John Dombrosky, head of marketing for Syngenta PPM in North America. “PMPs can be confident that it will provide effective fly control, and consumers can have peace of mind knowing that flies won’t be a nuisance or a threat to their homes or other properties.”
