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. 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.

Studies have proven that DuPont™ Altriset™ is highly effective against termites, and even halts feeding in hours. Laboratory tests have shown as termites tunnel through the treated zone, they quickly acquire a lethal dose of Altriset.™ However, these termites will continue to crawl, groom and clean for extended periods after exposure. Once affected by Altriset,™ termites will begin to exhibit increased aggregation, enhanced grooming and contact with other colony members for hours. Affected termites will become more lethargic and show signs of muscle paralysis; decreased coordination and mortality will ultimately occur within several days. The delayed mortality and increased colony interaction are key reasons why Altriset™ is so effective.

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. This achievement is one reason why the U.S. EPA has awarded Altriset™ reduced-risk status for use as a termiticide treatment.

Collier Pest Control is also concerned about the impact we have on our environment. This is why we are very excited about the New Altriset™ by DuPont™ that has little or no toxic effect on our surroundings and environment! If you are looking for a environmentally safe way to control damaging subterranean termites, this is it. Altriset™ control termites quickly and without any impact to our surrounding.
