Application and Results

Altriset® termiticide stops feeding within hours after application, and fully controls termite infestations within three months.

How Atriset is applied

Your termite professional will apply Altriset in a six-inch deep trench dug around the perimeter of your home. After this is covered with dirt, there will be no visible sign of treatment. Areas where concrete slabs are present, such as garages, porches and basements, may require drilling so the ground is accessible.

How Altriset Works

  • Foraging termites come into contact with Altriset because they cannot taste or smell it. These termites can walk through it, ingest it and carry it on their bodies.
  • Within hours, the mouths of exposed termites' become paralyzed and they can no longer eat and destroy your home.
  • Exposed termites interact with other termites and quickly spread Altriset throughout the termite colony.
  • Over time, the termites become more lethargic. They show signs of muscle paralysis and then they die.
  • As a result, your home is termite-free within three months and fully protected.
