Amdro® Brand Introduces New Line Of Insecticides Through National Program And Product Launch

Stocks in this article: CENT

ATLANTA, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than 30 years, the Amdro® brand has been trusted by homeowners and professionals to eliminate a wide variety of pest problems. As part of a national product rollout, Amdro today announced the introduction of a complete line of insecticides specially designed to combat ants, snails, slugs, roaches and other common insect species that damage landscapes and infest homes.

Amdro® Ant Block® Home Perimeter Ant Bait, the brand's feature product, kills a range of ant species outside the home to prevent ants from coming inside. The bait is highly attractive to carpenter ants and 14 other ant species. Amdro® Ant Block® Home Perimeter Ant Bait allows foraging ants to bring the granules back to their mound before taking effect, resulting in the entire colony, including the queen, being destroyed. After two to four weeks, the queen and the ants in the colony are killed.

"Amdro® Ant Block® Home Perimeter Ant Bait allows homeowners to create a barrier of protection around their home, preventing ant colonies from invading interior areas," said John Gunning, Director of Marketing—indoor and outdoor insecticides, Central Garden & Pet Company. "Building on the expertise of the Amdro® brand in ant killing and control, consumers nationwide can now experience fast-acting and highly effective control through our complete line of solution-oriented products designed for a diverse range of insect-specific issues, application needs and plant types."

Along with preventing persistent ant problems, the Amdro® product line features several specialized options to control other destructive pests. For example, Amdro® Snail Block Slug & Snail Killer combats slug and snail infestations in lawns, ornamentals and edibles. Utilizing a new, highly-selective formula, people and pets can enter treated areas immediately after application.

The formula targets the unique oxygen transport system characteristics of slugs and snails. Once ingested, the feeding of slugs and snails is inhibited immediately. This physiological effect gives fast-acting protection to plants from further damage, as well as ensures beneficial species, such as honeybees, ladybird beetles and earthworms, are not harmed.
