Bayer India’s Environmental Science business unit has launched a new insecticide called Temprid SC, which can control cockroaches in residential and commercial premises. TempridTM SC is India’s first dual active household insecticide, which combines the fast-acting, broad-spectrum control of Beta-Cyfluthrin with the systemic residual control of Imidacloprid to provide premium performance and efficacy in cockroach control. It is recommended as a residual spray for the control of cockroaches commonly found in food handling/processing areas of household and commercial premises.
Temprid was launched in the presence of Bayer’s distributors, dealers, key customers and Pest Control Operators. It is available in two pack sizes: 50ml and 500ml.
Head of Bayer CropScience, Indian Subcontinent, Mr. Joerg Rehbein said, “Pest Control Operators across the globe vouch for the efficacy of TempridTM, as it has a faster knockdown rate and is cost-effective. At the same time, the low dose rate and odorless formulation makes it a safer alternative for effective pest management.”
Imidacloprid over stimulates the nerves, opening the voltage sensitive Na+ channels whereas Beta-Cyfluthrin causes nerve depolarization by binding to open (activated) Na+ channels. The benefits of the product include synergistic action and unsurpassed performance. It is an odourless formulation with broad spectrum activity and is useful for indoor and outdoor application. It is known to restore efficacy even in resistant insects and is cost effective as it works on a low dose rate i.e 4 ml of TempridTM to be diluted in 1 litre of water to cover an area of 20 square meters.
Temprid can be defined as a Professional Pest Management solution for effective control of cockroaches. It is water-based and odorless and has lowest dosage at only 4 ml per litre of water and is the first household insecticide with a combination of two active ingredients, namely Imidacloprid & Beta-Cyfluthrin
