Tandem Insecticide has been formulated using two well-known professional insecticides - Thiamethoxam and Lambda-Cyhalothrin. Tandem Insecticide provides quick knock-down and excellent residual control of more than 90 pests.
Tandem Insecticide may be used both indoors and outdoors in commercial, residential, and food-handling areas. The manufactor of this product, Syngenta, refers to it as an "iCAP" microencapsulation. This technology provides the active ingredients with protection from environmental conditions by using a mixture of different microscopic sized capsules.
Tandem will also provides systemic control of pests in plants and this actively moves the chemical quickly into leaves where honeydew producing pests like aphids, scales, and whiteflies feed. Controlling these aphids, whiteflies and scales limits the supply of food for other pests such as ants and wasps.
According to Syngenta, “Tandem provides pest control from cupboard to curb.”
