Temprid 500ml - Bayer India’s Environmental Science business unit launched TempridTM - a new insecticide for control of cockroaches in residential and commercial premises

TempridTM is India’s first dual active household insecticide, which combines the fast-acting, broad-spectrum control of Beta-Cyfluthrin with the systemic residual control of Imidacloprid to provide premium performance and efficacy in cockroach control. TempridTM is recommended as a residual spray for the control of cockroaches commonly found in food handling/processing areas of household and commercial premises.

Imidacloprid over stimulates the nerves, opening the voltage sensitive Na+ channels whereas Beta-Cyfluthrin causes nerve depolarization by binding to open (activated) Na+ channels. The benefits of the product include synergistic action and unsurpassed performance. It is an odourless formulation with broad spectrum activity and is useful for indoor and outdoor application. It is known to restore efficacy even in resistant insects and is cost effective as it works on a low dose rate i.e 4 ml of TempridTM to be diluted in 1 litre of water to cover an area of 20 square meters.

The product has been launched in India in two pack sizes: 50 ml and 500 ml. Speaking about the new product, Joerg Rehbein, Head of Bayer CropScience, Indian Subcontinent said, “Pest Control Operators across the globe vouch for the efficacy of TempridTM, as it has a faster knockdown rate and is cost-effective. At the same time, the low dose rate and odorless formulation makes it a safer alternative for effective pest management.”

The product portfolio of Bayer’s Environmental Science business unit is divided into Professional Pest Management and Vector Management. Bayer offers a wide range of effective and safe pest management solutions to customers and the pest control service industry which are first choice solutions for a better life. Other top brands from Environmental Science in India include: Premise®, Solfac® and K-Othrine®.
