How is Altriset different from a termite bait?

As a liquid termiticide, Altriset® provides almost immediate and long-term residual control. Altriset is sprayed around the entire foundation of your home, making it nearly impossible for termites to avoid when foraging toward your home to feed. Once termites come in contact with Altriset, their mouthparts become paralyzed within hours, stopping them from causing destruction to your home. Because Altriset is easily shared among termite colony members, you can expect control within three months.


Rather than providing a continuous barrier around your home like liquid termiticides, baiting systems have gaps, which make it more likely that termites will miss the bait and find your home. Baiting systems rely on termites to find them and could take months for control to begin.


Give yourself peace of mind by using a liquid termiticide, such as Altriset, to provide your home constant protection against termites. Altriset ensures your home is termite-free.


Other Reasons to Choose Altriset

In addition to considering the effectiveness of a termiticide, you also want to feel comfortable knowing it is an environmentally sound solution. Altriset helps control termites at a low-use rate, which means less product is needed for termite control. Additionally, Altriset does not have a signal word on its label because of the favorable results of acute toxicity studies conducted on the formulation. The label also says that when used as directed, Altriset does not present a hazard to humans or domestic animals.
