MGK has sponsored this month’s FREE webinar to address the challenges of ant control. Sumari® Insecticide was created using Pest Management Professional’s feedback and extensive research to create this innovative ant solution. 

The presentation will address several areas that pest professionals reported as challenging when it comes to ant control and introduce Sumari® Insecticide, an ultra-convenient, all-in-one product that provides fast-acting and long-lasting residual control of ants, including multi-queen species. Sumari incorporates the proven power of NyGuard® IGR (insect growth regulator) for maximum efficacy and boasts a versatile label that simplifies mixing and application.
