“Madam, we have thorough checked your house and found serious termite attack signs. Do not worry as we would like to recommend Bayer’s termite solution using Agenda™ to treat your house…. “
This statement sound very familiar when Bayer launched its first non-repellent “Agenda™” termiticide with a unique mode of action combines structural protection and colony management to Singapore market since November 2001.
Agenda™ contains the active ingredient fipronil, which is extremely effective on termites at ultra-low doses and strong binding to soil, which minimizes environmental effects. Besides the benefits mentioned above, the termite colony management also improves the performance and reliability of control resulted greater customers confident.
Ever since the first day introduction, Agenda™ has received well responses from the homeowner for being able to protect their premises for 5 years duration even under tropical conditions thereby providing the longest period of protection of any currently available termiticides.
Furthermore the unique approach of external-only drilling possible where no infestation is present, thus minimizing disturbance. This has provided greater satisfaction to the homeowner as it offers less intrusive treatment and yet greater protection.
This year 2011 marks a complete 10 years anniversary for Agenda™ that has provided thousands of premise a reliable termite protection…..Let’s celebrate and give further support to continue our homes sustainable termite protection !!!
*AgendaTM is strongly recommended for treatment and protection of existing buildings and structures.
Agenda™ is rated the number one termite defence product in the world. Agenda™ is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations.
In many situations, termites do not worry us. But when they threaten structures, the need for termite protection becomes paramount.
Protective measures, such as the subterranean chemical treatment, can be taken to prevent termites from damaging structures. The chemicals used are applied by professionals and form a barrier that prevents termites' access to the structure.
Traditionally these chemicals work in one of two ways: either as a toxic barrier - which prevents termite entry by killing termites as they encounter the chemical in the soil; or as a repellent barrier - which deters termites from entering the treated soil.
Agenda™ acts differently compared to other termite control products.
When applied, little do foraging termites realise it, but when they enter treated soil, they unknowingly pick up ultra-low doses of Agenda's active ingredient.
What they also don't realise, is that this ultra-low dose of Agenda™ is enough to threaten not only their own existence, but also their termite nestmates back at the colony.
Due to Agenda's unique mode of action on termites, it does not only protects structures, but manages the termite colony as well. No other product acts this way.
Agenda™ is used at very low dose rates so it will have minimal impact on the environment. Agenda™ is soft on earthworms, soil microflora, and plants.
The unique Agenda™ solution provides structural protection and colony management.
Termite control is notoriously difficult because damage is often extensive before termites are detected, and because the source (or nest) is normally difficult to locate.
Traditional control methods have relied on creating a chemical barrier to stop termites from entering a structure (figure 1).
More recently termite baits (figure 2) have been introduced, but during the time these baits take to work, damage to the structure can continue to occur.
Agenda™ works in two ways when applied to soil, thus giving a significant performance advantage, and increases the reliability and success of termite treatment.
First, Agenda™ manages the termite colony by contaminating foraging termites with ultra-low doses of active ingredient. As the mortality of these termites is delayed with these ultra-low doses, the termites are able to pass on the active ingredient to other members of the termite colony before they die. This transfer of active ingredient is highly efficient with Agenda™ and results in a significant decline in the activity of the colony.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Pour the required quantity of Agenda™ 10 SC into a mixing tank half filled with water. Stir thoroughly. Finally, fill the tank with the remaining balance of water to the correct level and mix well. Use a volume of 5 times solution per square metre area.
Thoroughly apply either as a drench, coarse spray or by rodding and injection to the target area.
Always ensure minimum 3 grams of active ingredient (fipronil) is applied per square metre or per linear metre.
Agenda™ has a unique mode of action. Agenda™ utilizes a new class of chemistry - fipronil, from the phenyl pyrazole group. This new active ingredient provides Agenda with it's unique mode of action and major benefits to termite control professionals and their customers.
As they enter treated soil, termites will pick up active ingredient from the soil; but will not die immediately, due to the insufficient concentration to cause their rapid mortality.
Termites interact with one another through contact. This way, Agenda's active ingredient (fipronil) is passed on from one termite to another; just like a contagious disease. However, this low concentration of fipronil would not kill contaminated termites immediately.
At these ultra-low concentrations, the contaminated termites survive long enough to interact with other termites, and in the process, pass on the active ingredient before they die.
As an alternative to chemical soil treatment, developers and architects may wish to consider the suitability of using non-chemical termite management systems or physical termite barrier systems.
Please note that the above chemicals are controlled as hazardous substances under the Environmental Protection and Management Act. Pest control operators are required to apply for a Hazardous Substances Licence/ Permit to buy and use controlled hazardous substances.
