This has been an unusual and uncertain year so far for every industry including pest management. However, despite shutdowns and business limitations, customers have still counted on pest management professionals (PMPs) to keep their homes and properties free from pests like cockroaches that pose a public health risk.

Statistics show cockroaches are still top of mind for customers. More than 75% of PMPs surveyed for this report said that their customers consider cockroaches a public health pest. These insights are what help us stay ahead of challenging cockroach populations and adapt to unforeseen situations. Syngenta is proud to sponsor this year’s State of the Cockroach Market report with PCT magazine, which we hope you will find useful in helping your business adapt and grow.

Taking an integrated pest management (IPM) approach is recommended to provide thorough, long-lasting control; however, the trial and error often associated with cockroach control can be difficult and expensive for PMPs. That’s why Syngenta introduced the SecureChoiceSM Cockroach Assurance Program, which is the result of an abundance of field-tested research Syngenta has done using IPM protocols so you don’t have to. By following the proven SecureChoice Cockroach IPM Guide, PMPs will see at least a 90% reduction in cockroach populations during the first four visits to a customer over a 60-day period.

This is achieved through a three-step IPM approach that guides you through the phases of treatment: initial visit, follow-up visit, and maintenance and prevention. Additionally, it features a proven combination of complementary products on a 90-day rotation to ensure control, including:

  • Advion® WDG insecticide and Optigard® Cockroach Gel Bait
  • Optigard Flex liquid insecticide and Advion Evolution Cockroach Gel Bait

Take the guesswork out of cockroach control to confidently provide effective services for your clients without wasting time on trial and error. With these proven resources, we’re sure you will see success against cockroaches.
