Altriset Termiticide is one of the newest termiticide in the market. This product is the first liquid soil-applied termiticide to be registered as reduced-risk for use on termites by the U.S. EPA. under its Reduced-Risk Pesticide Program. In other words, while this product is still very effective, it also does less harm to the environment.
The active ingredient is Chlorantraniliprole 18.4%.
This is great for Subterranean Termites and Localized treatment of Drywood Termites.
Features a non-repellent formulation that stops feeding within hours of exposure; termites’ mouthparts become paralyzed shortly after contacting treated soil, and damage ceases soon after
Its delayed toxicity means exposed termites that have stopped feeding can still walk, groom and aggregate in groups for an extended period of time, increasing the chances for Altriset to spread among colony members
Provides timely control that lasts -- laboratory observations showed that when non-exposed (recipients) termite workers of R. hesperus were put together with exposed termites (donors), 100 percent mortality of both exposed and unexposed groups was observed within seven days
Has a low impact on non-target beneficial organisms, such as honey bees and earthworms, when used in accordance with the label
