Two Advion® brand insecticides from Syngenta receive registration for use in California

California pest management professionals (PMPs) can now use Advion MicroFlow and Advion Insect granular bait to control ants, cockroaches and more

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, Jan. 31, 2023 ― Advion® MicroFlow insect bait and Advion Insect granular bait are now registered for use in California. As part of the trusted Advion brand portfolio — known for the active ingredient indoxacarb and the MetaActive™ effect, which differentiates between target pests and non-target organisms ― these products can help California PMPs control tough pest infestations and offer their customers peace of mind.

Advion MicroFlow

Advion MicroFlow is an excellent dry flowable bait option for controlling target pests, including ants, cockroaches, crickets, pantry pests and more. With unique features like a flexible label, powerful secondary transfer effect and a highly attractive bait matrix, it can be used anywhere dust products are normally used. It’s milled to a fine particle size, allowing it to reach deep within cracks, crevices and hard-to-reach areas inaccessible to gel baits or liquids.

“[Advion MicroFlow] works,” said Wally Melendez, owner of A&R Pest Solutions in Vancouver, Washington. “Going into an account with a duster instead of a compressed sprayer just feels better for me and my customers. The areas [Advion MicroFlow] gets into are amazing. Application with [the product] allows for so much more control in areas liquids and gel won’t reach.”

Advion Insect granular bait features an attractive bait matrix in a palatable formulation, which results in greater bait consumption and control of target perimeter pests. The product comes in a 12-pound bag and a 1-pound shaker bottle, making it ideal for use as a perimeter band treatment or for convenient spot applications.

Advion Insect Granular Bait

“I had a new customer with an infestation of American cockroaches where he had about 30-40 sightings per night,” said Tommy Cantu, owner of Bug Off Pest Control in Pharr, Texas. “One day after an [Advion Insect granular bait] treatment, there were about 10 cockroaches, four after the second day and none thereafter.”

Advion MicroFlow and Advion Insect granular bait can be purchased from any authorized Syngenta distributor.
