  1. 1. TermitesWhat termiticide should you choose and why?<br />
  2. 2. Not all termiticides are created equal!<br />ProBest only uses and offers 3 termiticides – Transport, Termidor and Altriset<br />Transport – offers a repellent and non-repellent option<br />Termidor – offers a great transfer affect<br />Altriset – reduced risk and carries no signal word<br />
  3. 3. Transport <br />Fast-acting and long-lasting protection termite control is here. With its unique non-repellent formulation, Transport® termiticide insecticide quickly controls termite infestations that are chewing their way through the homes across the U.S. while also providing the long term protection from future termite invasions.<br />Transport is extremely effective at controlling all three genera of termites, including: <br />Reticulitermes (Eastern Subterranean Termites) - Heterotermes (Western Subterranean Termites) Coptotermes (Formosan Termites East Coast and Gulf Areas of U.S.)<br />One tough formulation. Transport provides two active treatment zones within the soil. Two Active Ingredients – Bifenthrin with 15 plus years of testing by the USDA and Acetamiprid. The encompassing outer zone is what provides the quick results of termites invading the inside or outside of the structure while the inner zone provides a blanket of long-term protection. No other product available today provides this dual treatment. <br />Tested Tough on Infested HomesResearchers and Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) put new Transport to the test under some of the most seriously infested structures. Treatment of hundreds termite infested homes showed incredible results. Efficacy data shows that in 94% of the treatments, termites were no longer active within 30 days of treatment.<br />The inspection process of the Transport homes was one of the industry’s most rigorously performed to date. Inspections using the most advanced, state-of-the-art equipment available were performed every two weeks to track termite activity. Once termites were no longer active, quarterly visits were performed and continue to be performed to demonstrate longevity.<br />The Added Bonus of Transport termiticide/insecticide. Transport not only controls termites, it is also tough on outdoor household pests. Transport provides: <br />Improved speed of insect knockdown <br /> A more complete kill <br />Good resistance management properties <br /> Longer residual.<br />
  4. 4. Termidor <br />Why Termidor<br />#1 termite control product for a great number of reasons No other termite control system of any type has ever achieved such a high level of effectiveness. Quite simply: Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations. So it's not surprising that millions of homeowners like you have made Termidor the #1 termite defense product in America. When it comes to termite protection for your home, demand the product that’s #1 in termite pest control. Demand Termidor Termite Defense.The only one to completely eliminate termites in all tests, in all locationsBefore Termidor was made available to American homeowners through Termidor Certified Professionals; it was put through some of the toughest efficacy and environmental tests in history. For 10+ years of testing, Termidor was proven to be effective against subterranean termites, including Formosans, in even the most challenging situations, climates and environments.The fastest at eliminating termites When it comes to getting rid of termites, nothing does the job quicker than Termidor. Period. Your termite problem will be completely eliminated. It's that simple.<br />Termidor'sunique advantages:<br />America's #1 termite defense with over 2 million homes treated since 2000. <br />Kills termites by ingestion, contact, and the "Transfer Effect," meaning affected insects help spread Termidor throughout the colony before dying themselves. <br />Manages colonies up to 6 times faster than bait systems. <br />Most effective termiticide — over 10 years of test data prove most effective and fastest at eliminating termite populations. <br />Responsible, low-dose treatment, with no odor. <br />Only trained, Termidor Certified Professionals can apply the product.<br /> <br />How Termidor Works!<br /> <br />A little bit of Termidor goes a long way in treating your homeTermidor is applied at very low rates. Typically, the active ingredient (fipronil) is just 0.06% of the solution, a concentration much lower than that of older liquids and less than most insecticides. For an average home treatment, only about 8 ounces of the active ingredient is actually used. Keep in mind, too, that since 1995, fipronil has been used around the world for flea and tick control on household pets and on agricultural crops to protect food supplies. And Termidor has virtually no odor, which means you and your family won't notice a thing.Advanced undetectable technology<br />Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or "undetectable" chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can finds breaks in or avoid completely.<br />How Termidor protects your home from termites<br />After Termidor is applied, termites that contact it transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact in a unique process called the "Transfer Effect." And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population.<br />
  5. 5. Altriset <br />Altriset is a new reduced-risk non-repellent termiticide that provides excellent control of subterranean termites with minimal impact on the environment.<br />Altriset will eliminate termites in less than three months and will protect your home or business for more than 5 years when used in accordance with the label. Once termites come into contact with Altriset, their ability to feed on wood is halted within hours, resulting in death. The product is slowly passed throughout the colony by touch and contact, causing total colony elimination. Altriset's new class of chemistry provides a high-performing and long-lasting residual termite control product that is also safe to use--In addition to requiring no signal word on the label, DuPont Altriset Termiticide is the first and only liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk under the U.S. EPA reduced-risk program: Altriset requires no special safety equipment, represents no health risk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed, and is safer for the environment<br />Active Ingredient: Chlorantraniliprole 18.4%<br />Target pests: Subterranean Termites<br />For use in: <br />For Outdoor Use Only as an in-ground termite treatment around structures.<br />Application: <br />Mix 0.34 oz. per gallon of water to make a 0.05% solution (recommended) for subterranean termites. For 25 gallons of finished solution.....Mix 8.5 oz. Altriset + 25 gallons water.For 50 gallons of finished solution.......Mix 17 oz. Altriset + 50 gallons water.For 100 gallons of finished solution......Mix 34 oz. Altriset + 100 gallons water.<br />Pet safe: Yes. Altriset is labeled Reduced-Risk by the EPA and presents no health risk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed.<br />Yield: 1 bottle (34 oz.) will make 100 gallons of finished solution and treat 250 lineal feet around a home.<br />Manufactured by: DUPONT<br />Is Altriset Better than Termidor?Altriset introduces a whole new type of chemistry that is similar but different than Termidor SC.  Both products are transferred throughout the termite colony for total colony elimination.  However, unlike Termidor, Altriset is the first and only termiticide labeled Reduced-Risk by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).<br />
  6. 6. Altriset <br />Product Features:- Eliminates termites in less than three months when used in accordance with the label- Halts termite feeding within hours- Provides residual protection for more than five years- Non-repellent chemistry is indiscernible to termites- Behavioral impact on termites enhances translocation throughout the colony- Mode of action like no other termite control product- Excellent environmental and toxicological profile- First and only reduced-risk liquid Termiticide<br />Now there is a non-repellent termiticide that provides excellent control of termites yet has minimal impact on the environment. The team of scientists at DuPont has developed another new class of chemistry with this latest innovation, providing high-performing termite control and soil residual for ongoing structural protection.<br /> <br />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. Laboratory and field study results prove Altriset™ halts termite feeding within hours while providing termite elimination for critical long-term structural protection. Plus, Altriset™ offers an excellent toxicological and environmental profile.  In addition to requiring no signal word on the label, DuPont™ Altriset™ is the first and only liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk under the U.S. EPA reduced-risk program.<br /> <br />Excellent Environmental Profile:<br /> <br />Dupont Altriset is a highly effective way to control termites while also minimizing impact on the environment. Altriset also has an excellent environmental and toxicological profile – requiring no signal word on the label.<br /> <br />Mode of Action:  <br />Altriset is the first termiticide product featuring an active ingredient from the anthranilic diamide class of chemistry. The class was inspired by research into the insecticide properties of a natural substance found in the bark of trees and shrubs of the genus Ryania. Calteryx, the active ingredient in Altriset, is a synthetic compound that affects the ryanodine receptors in the insect muscle fiber. These receptors regulate the flow of calcium into the cell cytoplasm to control muscle contraction. Altriset binds to the ryanodine and causes it to remain open, resulting in a depletion of calcium ions that disrupts muscle contraction. Altriset was designed to target ryanodine receptors of specific insects such as termites.<br />
