GREENSBORO, N.C. – Arilon insecticide from Syngenta Professional Pest Management has received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for uses on more than 20 pests in residential and commercial settings.* This expanded label gives Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) more flexibility for controlling a variety of pests with a non-pyrethroid, non-neonicotinoid chemistry. Arilon is the only sprayable product in its class of chemistry, the oxadiazines.
“Syngenta knows PMPs need products to evolve, so they can continue meeting their business challenges,” said John Dombrosky, head of marketing for Syngenta PPM in North America. “Options are important, and with the new Arilon label and multiple application methods, PMPs can expect the same great results they’ve experienced, but with a wider range of pests to control, such as fleas, flies, stink bugs and more.”
The active ingredient in Arilon, indoxacarb, can differentiate between target insects and non-target insects. Its unique mode of action combines non-repellency and a slight delay in insect mortality, so Arilon can be shared among target insects. This helps ensure comprehensive control within 24-48 hours. The following pests have been added to the Arilon label:
• Boxelder bugs
• Carpenter bees
• Kudzu bugs
• Pantry pests (including granary weevil beetles and saw-toothed grain beetles)
• Stink bugs (including brown marmorated stink bugs)
In addition to the newly added pests, the expanded Arilon label allows the product to be applied in different ways to meet the specific needs of PMPs. Arilon can be applied indoors as a crack-and-crevice application and in food-handling establishments (see product label), as well as outdoors as a perimeter application up to a flexible 10-foot band. With its new label, Arilon is ideal for these uses:
• Residential high-volume power spray - By using Arilon with a higher volume of water, PMPs can provide customers with comprehensive coverage at a cost-effective price.
• Commercial use - Arilon can be used as a stand-alone treatment or used in conjunction with baits for cleanout without disrupting operations. It is also an effective tool in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs.
“PMPs shouldn’t have to change their processes or equipment when it comes to running a pest management business,” said Gregg Wisniewski, marketing manager for Syngenta PPM in North America. “Because of the flexibility and extended pest control PMPs can now get with Arilon, they won’t have to make costly and inconvenient business changes.”
