Bayer Environmental Science Receives Registration on Allectus SC

Bayer Environmental Science has received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Allectus SC. Allectus provides lawn care professionals, golf course superintendents (as Allectus SC GC) and sports turf managers with control of turf pests both above and below the surface.

The company received registration for the granular formulation, Allectus G, in November of 2004. Registration for Allectus on fertilizer is pending.

“Now that registration for Allectus SC is approved, customers can select a formulation that fits their needs,” remarked Dr. Mike Ruizzo, business manager, imidacloprid insecticides at Bayer Environmental Science. “Whether they prefer to apply Allectus as a granular or liquid, customers will experience operational benefits and cost-savings that can be directly attributed to the use of this product.”

Lawn care professionals, golf course superintendents, and sports turf managers in certain areas of the country deal with both grub and surface insect control to varying degrees. In the North the primary pest concern is grubs with fluctuating surface insect pressure. The opposite is true in the South where the primary concern is surface insects but grub pressure is on the increase. In both regions of the country, Allectus provides a single product solution for insects above and below the surface.

Allectus was tested extensively throughout the United States by more than 30 university cooperators, independent consultants and Bayer Environmental Science researchers during the past two years.

The SC formulation is labeled for both soil and foliar applications. For residential properties, Allectus SC has 0.81 pounds of active ingredient per gallon. For golf courses, Allectus SC GC has 0.63 pounds of active ingredient per gallon. Refer to label for applications rates. One application can provide up to 12 weeks of residual control.
