Altriset -A Major Innovation in Termite Control
The active ingredient in Altriset™ termiticide was formulated based on a naturally occurring compound found in the bark of a South American plant, Ryania speciosa. From this, scientists created a breakthrough termiticide that works unlike any other. When a professional applies Altriset™, he or she only needs a low dose to control termites and ensure extended residual control.
Altriset™protects your home by stopping further damage and fully controlling the termite infestation within three months. Altriset™ also provides long-lasting protection in surrounding soil to prevent future damage so you can live free from the worry of termites.
In fact, studies show that just one application of Altriset™ can fully protect your home from termites for years.
Hundreds of laboratory and field studies conducted by independent scientists have proven that Altriset™ is an exceptional termiticide.
These studies show termites acquire a debilitating dose of Altriset™ while tunnel through a treated zone around your home.
They also demonstrate that Altriset™ increases termites socializing and grooming behavior. This means they spread Altriset™ to other termite colony members – each group of exposed termites continuing this process, eventually impacting the entire termite colony.
Here’s how it works
Aetna Pest Controls’ termite treatment professional applies Altriset™ according to the label directions.
The first wave of termites that come into contact with Altriset™ walks through it, ingests it, and carries it on their bodies. They cannot taste or smell it.
Within hours, the mouths of exposed termites become paralyzed preventing further feeding.
Exposed termites experience increased grooming and interaction so they spread Altriset™ among other colony members.
Over time, termites become more lethargic and show signs of muscle paralysis.
Altriset™ eliminates termites within three months or less when used in accordance with the label.
Although Altriset™ is extremely effective on termites. Its unique chemistry is targeted so that it has little impact on the organisms that you do want in your yard—such as wasp and earthworms.
The bottom line
- Altriset™ is the first liquid termiticide to be
registered as reduced-risk by the U.S. EPA and the Canadian PMRA
- Eliminates termites in three months, or less, when used in accordance with the label
- Halts termite feeding within hours
- Provides residual protection for more than nine years
- Non-repellent chemistry is indiscernible to termites
- Behavioral impact on termites enhances translocation throughout the colony
- Mode of action like no other termite control product
- Excellent environmental and toxicological profile
- Its toxicological profile is so low, it doesn’t require a signal word on the label
