RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Bayer Environmental Science announced that  the Environmental Protection Agency has approved the addition of bed bug control to the Temprid SC Insecticide label.

In response to the industry’s growing demand for a fast, effective solution against bed bugs – especially those strains that have shown resistance to pyrethroids – Bayer worked diligently to expedite the addition of bed bugs to the Temprid SC Insecticide label. “We are thrilled to deliver a new weapon in the fight against bed bugs to the industry, especially at a time when infestations are on the rise nationwide,” says Eric Lentz, general insect control marketing manager for Bayer.

Now, the speed of control that many pest management professionals have experienced with Temprid SC for ants and perimeter pests can be applied to bed bugs, including resistant strains. Temprid’s fusion of imidacloprid and beta-cyfluthrin provides faster bed bug control than competitive pyrethroid products, Bayer reports. Temprid also provides a long-lasting residual, controlling resistant bed bugs for more than 30 days, even on fabrics where many other products have failed, according to Bayer.  In addition, Temprid kills bed bug eggs when applied as a direct treatment and, more surprisingly, dried residues prevent eggs from hatching. “Helping PMPs overcome their toughest control problems without sacrificing their business’ profitability is all part of the ‘Backed by Bayer’ promise,” says Lentz.

Temprid SC already has a flexible indoor and outdoor use label for control of ants and other pests, but now it can also be applied to the places bed bugs like to hide, including mattresses, box springs, headboards, bed frames, furniture, upholstery, curtains, picture frames and carpet edges. “With Temprid, PMPs only need one product to solve their toughest infestations of ants, most perimeter pests – and now, bed bugs. Knowing you can rely on one product to solve multiple problems can help you streamline your business operations and save on labor costs in the field,” says Lentz.

Temprid is available for use in 48 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Temprid is sold in an easy-to-pour 400 millileter bottle and is packaged 6 bottles to a case.
