Syngenta Announces Registration and Availability of Tandem

Supplier News

The new insecticide combines the active ingredients lambda-cyhalothrin and thiamethoxam.

| October 8, 2012

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Syngenta Professional Pest Management announced today that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted registration of Tandem insecticide, a new product with dual modes of action to control more than 90 indoor and outdoor pests. The technologically advanced formulation and chemistry of Tandem combines lambda-cyhalothrin and thiamethoxam, two effective active ingredients, to provide pest management professionals (PMPs) with one flexible, broad-spectrum product.

“Tandem provides pest control from cupboard to curb,” said Pat Willenbrock, brand manager for Syngenta. “With two active ingredients and the flexibility to use on various sites, Tandem eliminates the need for technicians to carry and use multiple products, making it easier to tackle a variety of pest issues.”

Tandem is labeled to use indoors for residential, commercial and food-handling areas and outdoors for perimeter or spot treatments for general pests including ants, crawling insects, flying insects, occasional invaders, pantry pests, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and wasps. Additionally, Tandem has a full turf-application label that allows applications in lawn and landscapes to control sucking and chewing turf pests such as grubs and chinch bugs.

PMPs can expect both contact and residual control with Tandem because it is formulated using iCAP technology. Within the formulation, microcapsules of various sizes ensure a controlled release to provide quick knockdown and long-term control without being degraded by environmental conditions.

“Controlled release of the active ingredient means control will last up to four months,” explains Bob Cartwright, technical manager for Syngenta. “This will give customers peace of mind and ensure PMPs that control will last through quarterly service protocols.”

For more information about Tandem, PMPs can visit www.SyngentaPMP.com or contact the Syngenta Customer Center at 1-866-SYNGENT(A).
