BASF Introduces New SmartSolution for Ants
Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) who want to control ants with just one treatment can now turn to BASF Pest Control Solutions . The new SmartSolution for Ants combines Termidor® termiticide/insecticide with a powerful lineup of multi-situational ant control products and Prescription Treatment® brand IPM techniques that exploit unique ant behavior and biology.
"Treating an ant problem is very different than treating other perimeter pests because of the complex social colonies and foraging habits," said Dr. Jason Meyers, Market Development Specialist, BASF Pest Control Solutions. "Our comprehensive solution is delivered in three layers of inside and outside treatments to ensure PMPs can provide control the first time they are called."
The three layers of treatment consist of; Exterior On Structure, Exterior Off Structure and Inside Structure.
- Exterior On Structure: Termidor® termiticide/insecticide provides the most effective low-dose control of ants available. It creates a treated zone of nonrepellent protection around the home, essential for the "Transfer Effect."
- Exterior Off Structure: Prescription Treatment® brand Advance® Granular Ant Bait formula 1 and Prescription Treatment® brand Cy-Kick® CS provide a second layer of control away from the structure.
- Inside Structure: Multiple nonrepellent ant control products exist for inside structure problem areas such as Prescription Treatment® brand Phantom® Pressurized Insecticide, Prescription Treatment® brand Alpine® Dust, Prescription Treatment® brand Alpine® Ant and Termite Foam, Prescription Treatment® brand Alpine® Pressurized Insecticide and Prescription Treatment® Brand Advance® Ant Bait.
The SmartSolution for Ants is just one of many BASF SmartSolutions that address pest control challenges and issues. For more information on SmartSolutions for termites , bed bugs , or rodents , visit: www.pestcontrol.basf.com .
