Allectus, Bayer Environmental Science, Research Triangle Park, N.C.

Allectus insecticide from Bayer Environmental Science combines the power of two industry-leading insecticides to give lawn care professionals and golf course superintendents unprecedented control of all major insect pests both above and below the surface, with a single product. With the unique combination of active ingredients, imidacloprid and bifenthrin, Allectus delivers a one-two punch that produces highly effective preventative and curative control and is the only broad-spectrum insecticide to control pests both above and below the surface. One application provides up to 12 weeks of residual control; two applications give season-long protection. Allectus is available in granular and liquid formulations.

Responsible for the development of this product are Dr. Nate Royalty, technical development manager, insecticides, and Dr. Mike Ruizzo, former business manager, insecticides, and current national account manager, Bayer Environmental Science, in partnership with researchers from FMC.

Customers are finding all sorts of uses for Allectus. There are reports of great ant control on golf greens and tees, outstanding chinch bug control in Florida and overall excellent control of the normal white grub and surface feeder pests—in both golf and lawn care. This product offers maximum flexibility in application timing and the greatest operational efficiency by reducing two applications to one.
