The following information is taken directly from altriset.com: “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 that termites acquire a debilitating dose of Altriset when they 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 – and each group of exposed termites continues this process, eventually impacting the entire termite colony.”
How It Works
“Altriset® termiticide delivers efficient termite control by stopping further termite damage within hours after application, and continues working for at least nine years to ensure your home is protected from the threat of termites.
As a liquid termiticide, Altriset® provides almost immediate and long-term residual control. Altriset is sprayed around the entire foundation of your home, making it nearly impossible for termites to avoid when foraging toward your home to feed. Once termites come in contact with Altriset, their mouthparts become paralyzed within hours, stopping them from causing destruction to your home. Because Altriset is easily shared among termite colony members, you can expect control within three months.
Rather than providing a continuous barrier around your home like liquid termiticides, baiting systems have gaps, which make it more likely that termites will miss the bait and find your home. Baiting systems rely on termites to find them and could take months for control to begin.
Give yourself peace of mind by using a liquid termiticide, such as Altriset, to provide your home constant protection against termites. Altriset ensures your home is termite-free.”
