DuPont Altriset Registered by EPA; State Registration Applications Pending

Termiticides, Supplier News

DuPont Altriset is the first soil-applied liquid termiticide launched in almost a decade.

| December 2, 2010

WILMINGTON, Del. — DuPont Professional Products recently announced that DuPont Altriset termiticide has been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and state registration applications have been made. DuPont Altriset, the first soil-applied liquid termiticide launched in almost a decade, is in a class of chemistry with a mode of action like no other termite control product, the manufacturer states.

Laboratory and field study results show that termites stop feeding within hours of treatment and are eliminated for critical long-term structural protection. Also, Altriset offers an excellent environmental profile, the company reports. DuPont Altriset does not require a signal word on the label, and is the first liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk under by the U.S. EPA.

Laboratory tests have shown Altriset is highly effective against termites, DuPont says. As termites tunnel through the treated zone, they quickly stop feeding. Once affected by Altriset, termites will begin to exhibit increased aggregation, enhanced grooming and contact with other colony members for hours. This increased colony interaction is a key reason why Altriset is so effective.
