Termites cost homeowners billions of dollars in damages every year in the United States alone. If they're left untreated, a single colony can cause massive damage in months. In fact, these wood-eating insects consume around 6 pounds of wood in a single year. Altriset targets subterranean termites and kills them within hours of contact. If termites have targeted residential and commercial structures, eliminate the pest insects with Altriset termiticide.

How Altriset Termiticide Works
Altriset termiticide contains 18 percent chlorantraniliprole, a potent chemical that affects the pest insects' nervous system. Once a termite contacts the active ingredient, its muscles lose the ability to contract normally. After a few hours, the termite can no longer feed and dies as a result. Altriset termiticide degrades slowly, giving termites plenty of time to carry it into their colony and to infect other members.
Where to Use Altriset Termiticide
Subterranean termites burrow in the dirt and attack residential and commercial foundations at the ground level. Wood that contacts the ground is a prime target for termites. Use Altriset termiticide as an in-ground treatment around residential and commercial buildings. Drywood termites attack above the ground; however, Altriset only provides localized treatment for these pests. It's also possible to use Altriset termiticide as a spot treatment to protect trees within 50 feet of a building.
Altriset termiticide targets both subterranean and drywood termites. Though it's more effective at killing the subterranean species, it can be used as a localized treatment to kill drywood termites above the ground. Its reduced-risk status makes it safe to use in the environment and presents no serious health risks to people or pets.

Control Termites With Altriset Termiticide
No matter if termites attack crawlspaces or foundations, Altriset termiticide starts to kill the pests on contact.

The termites stop feeding within hours of touching the active ingredient, killing the colony from the inside out. Altriset provides five years of residual control and protects structures from further termite damage.
