Neudorff prepares to launch Scorpio Liquid Ant Bait

Category: Canada, Insecticides, Baits, Products

It is with great pleasure that Neudorff announces the launch of Scorpio Liquid Ant Bait in Canada.

Scorpio is a highly palatable, reduced risk liquid ant bait that introduces a new active ingredient to the structural pest control market, spinosad. Spinosad is a metabolite of the soil dwelling bacteria Saccharopolyspora spinosa. Spinosad based insecticides are widely used to protect food and ornamental plants including those on organic farms, but have not been used to protect structures...until now!

Spinosad is a reduced risk active ingredient that can be used around pets and wildlife. It kills a wide range of ant species including carpenter ants. Scorpio works quickly and kills the queen and colony. The colony is controlled within 1-2 weeks. Scorpio, therefore, offers pest management professionals a new way of controlling troublesome ants and manage resistance to exisitng products. This coupled with the reduced risk of spinosad makes Scorpio an exciting and novel new tool for the pest management professional.

The Neudorff team is very excited to enter the structural pest control market and looks forward to working with Gardex and Univar to bring Scorpio Liquid Ant Bait to the structural pest control industry.

Look to Neudorff as we move to expand the range of Scorpio products for pest management professionals.
