Cockroaches have nowhere to hide with new Advion® Trio cockroach gel bait from Syngenta

Advion Trio contains three active ingredients, including two insect growth regulators, for built-in resistance management 

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, March 4, 2024 ― Syngenta is launching new Advion® Trio cockroach gel bait to help pest management professionals (PMPs) stop cockroaches at every stage of their life cycle. With the combined power of three active ingredients with different modes of action, including two insect growth regulators (IGRs), Advion Trio is designed to deliver more complete control of tough cockroach infestations. 

“We are excited to announce Advion Trio as an effective, unique solution for PMPs to trust on challenging cockroach populations,” said Marshall Gaster, head of marketing for Professional Pest Management at Syngenta. “This latest innovation shows the continued Syngenta commitment to the pest management industry and how our ongoing research and development efforts lead to better tools for PMPs.” 

The IGRs in Advion Trio, pyriproxyfen and novaluron, prevent first- and late-instar nymphs from maturing into adults, while the active ingredient indoxacarb targets adult populations. Its highly attractive bait matrix makes it ideal for tough cleanout jobs in residential and commercial spaces, including food-handling establishments, as directed by the label. Additionally, Advion Trio can be used as part of the SecureChoice Cockroach Assurance Program for guaranteed control when following the program’s treatment protocols. 

Advion Trio is the newest addition to the class of industry-leading Syngenta gel baits, including: 

  • Advion Cockroach gel bait 
  • Advion Evolution cockroach gel bait 
  • Optigard® Cockroach gel bait 
  • Advion Ant gel bait 
  • Optigard Ant gel bait 

“When developing Advion Trio, we worked diligently with our research team to formulate this triple-action gel bait solution for PMPs,” said King Nelson, Ph.D., formulation chemist at Syngenta. “We invest in rigorous testing and continued development to ensure products like Advion Trio can help PMPs achieve the cockroach control they need on their accounts.”
