Tandem Insecticide-Two For Two
Tandem Insecticide combines two powerful active ingredients for two modes of action. Tandem Insecticide is formulated with thiamethoxam (neonicotinoid class) and lambda-cyhalothrin (pyrethroid family). These two active ingredients not only give you a quick kill, but provide a residual for long term control. This new product by Syngenta is also formulated with a patented iCap technology. This a technique that uses multiple sizes of micro capsules that protect the active ingredients from harsh environmental conditions, providing a long term controlled release for up to four months.
Tandem Insecticide - Broad Spectrum
Tandem Insecticide will control more than 90 pests and can be used in food-handling areas, residential and commercial areas. Tandem has a broad turf label for landscapes and lawns against such insects as grubs, bill bugs, chinch bugs and more.
Tandem Insecticide also serves as a systemic with its active ingredient, thiamethoxam. Tandem as a systemic will travel through the entire plant. Tandem will attack honeydew producing pests such as whiteflies, scales and aphids. As a side benefit, this systemic action which kills such pests as aphids limits the supply of food for sweet feeding ants.
Syngenta advertises Tandem Insecticide as a "cupboard to curb" insecticide. Because of its flexibility in use. As a broad spectrum insecticide and various use methods and sites, there is less need for a multitude of products.
