Syngenta introduces next-generation cockroach control with Advion Evolution and Optigard Cockroach Gel Baits


• Advion Evolution offers a highly attractive cockroach bait matrix
• Optigard Cockroach provides additional cockroach control tool with unique active ingredient and bait matrix

Adding to its high-performing portfolio of solutions for cockroach control, Syngenta has launched Advion® Evolution and Optigard® Cockroach Gel Baits. These products offer Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) advanced cockroach control with enhanced bait matrices and differentiated active ingredients (a.i.s).

“We know cockroaches are continuously evolving, but so are our methods of control,” said Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing for Professional Pest Management (PPM) at Syngenta in North America. “We are stepping up our game by giving PMPs exceptional bait products to control predominant cockroach species.”

Advion Evolution features the proven performance of indoxacarb, the same a.i. found in Advion Cockroach. It offers an enhanced bait matrix that is highly attractive to cockroaches, which results in increased feeding in even the toughest-to-control accounts.

Optigard Cockroach features a unique a.i., emamectin benzoate, which affects cockroaches at two different target sites. This helps provide another critical tool to effectively control cockroaches, all while following good resistance management practices. Its unique a.i. and formulation also make it an ideal partner for Advion Evolution and Advion Cockroach as part of a year-long cockroach control strategy to control a wide range of cockroach species.

“When it comes to a cockroach control strategy, PMPs need reliable, proactive solutions for the ever-present cockroach,” said Steve Dorer, market manager for PPM at Syngenta, North America. “Our forward-looking portfolio of cockroach gel bait products will help PMPs stay ahead of cockroaches today and tomorrow.”
