Sprayable Advion® WDG controls insects anywhere Advion gel baits can – and more

Trusted active ingredient in a sprayable formulation ideal for commercial and residential accounts

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, July 22, 2019 – Syngenta has introduced Advion® WDG insecticide – a sprayable formulation of the Advion brand. This product will give pest management professionals (PMPs) a more versatile, non-pyrethroid, non-neonicotinoid solution for commercial and residential areas.

Advion WDG controls a broad range of targeted insects, including large-colony ants, cockroaches and termites. It also features a MetaActive™ effect that activates the insecticidal properties of the active ingredient, indoxacarb, once it reacts with enzymes only found in target insects, meaning non-target organisms are less likely to be affected by the product.

“Our MetaActive effect is an advantage for PMPs,” says Marshall Gaster, market manager for Professional Pest Management (PPM) at Syngenta. “It offers peace of mind by providing the targeted control their customers expect.”

Advion WDG is a versatile product that can go anywhere Advion gel baits can go — and more. In addition to flexible indoor uses, it can be applied as a perimeter band outdoors up to 10 ft., making it ideal for applications around single- and multi-family residential buildings and commercial facilities. Advion WDG can also be used with Syngenta gel baits to enhance efficacy against target pests.

Additionally, the Advion WDG label allows for use in food-handling areas. This means PMPs can bring the sprayable protection of the Advion brand into a variety of commercial spaces, like commercial kitchens, and as spot and crack-and-crevice treatments in food-processing facilities while the facility is running.

“PMPs have used the Advion bait products for many years, and we’re proud to provide the same reliability in a sprayable formulation,” says Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing for PPM at Syngenta. “Adding Advion WDG to a pest management rotation should be an easy decision for PMPs who are familiar with the Advion brand.”
