Find a solution for large-colony ant infestations with Advion WDG

Managing large-colony ant species is a major challenge for pest management professionals (PMPs) – but it can also be a major opportunity to offer a proven solution that can satisfy your customers. That’s why Syngenta invests in continual research and development efforts to help control these persistent pests.

Advion® WDG insecticide from Syngenta is one such example. This sprayable version of the trusted Advion brand can provide targeted control of large-colony ants with a non-repellent, non-pyrethroid and non-neonicotinoid formulation. It can also control a broad range of other pests indoors and outdoors in residential, commercial and food-handling accounts – even when they’re open for operation.

In a recent field trial conducted with the University of California, Riverside, Advion WDG was used as part of an integrated pest management approach to help control Argentine ants around homes in southern California. The combination of Advion WDG, targeted gel bait placements and granular baits greatly reduced populations during peak season — when untreated areas were seeing sharp increases — and maintained a 90% reduction for eight weeks.
