Altriset is a new reduced-risk non-repellent termiticide thatprovides excellent control of subterranean termites with minimalimpact on the environment.

Altriset will elminate termites in less than three months andwill protect your home or business for more than 5 years when usedin accordance with the label. Once termites come into contact withAltriset, their ability to feed on wood is halted within hours,resulting in death. It is slowly passed throughout the colony bytouch and contact, causing total colony elimination.

Altriset's new class of chemistry provides a high-performing andlong-lasting residual termite control that is also safe to use--Inaddition to requiring no signal word on the label, AltrisetTermiticide is the first and only liquid termiticide to beclassified as reduced-risk under the U.S. EPA reduced-risk program:Altriset requires no special safety equipment, represents no healthrisk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed, and issafer for the environment.

Key Features:

* Features a non-repellent formulation that stops feeding within hours of exposure; termites’ mouthparts become paralyzed shortly after contacting treated soil, and damage ceases soon after.

* Its delayed toxicity means exposed termites that have stopped feeding can still walk, groom and aggregate in groups for an extended period of time, increasing the chances for Altriset to spread among colony members.

* Provides timely control that lasts -- laboratory observations showed that when non-exposed (recipients) termite workers of R. hesperus were put together with exposed termites (donors), 100 percent mortality of both exposed and unexposed groups was observed within seven days.

* Has a low impact on non-target beneficial organisms, such as honey bees and earthworms, when used in accordance with the label

Key Benefits:

* When used in accordance with the label, Altriset controls termites in less than three months and provides long-lasting residual structural protection.

* Altriset is the first liquid soil-applied termiticide to be registered as reduced-risk for use on termites by the U.S. EPA under its Reduced-Risk Pesticide Program

* Altriset has an excellent environmental profile, with one of the lowest use rates per finished gallon.

How Altriset Termiticide Works

Altriset is a reduced-risk non-repellent termiticide concentrate that provides excellent control of subterranean termites with minimal impact on the environment. The active ingredient, Chlorantraniliprole, introduces a new class of insecticides, Anthranilic diamide, that causes an interruption of normal muscle contractions, leading termites to lose the ability to feed on wood. The active ingredient works slowly enough that it is spread throughout the colony by touch and contact, causing total colony elimination.

The EPA has rated Altriset the first Reduced Risk Termiticide on the market. It requires no special safety equipment and does not even require a signal word on the label, yet it is still effective for at least five years when used as directed.

Target Pests

Subterranean termites including species of Reticulitermes, Coptotermes, and Heterotermes

Target Uses

Altriset Termiticide is intended for use as a remedial and/or preventative termite control product in both pre- and post-construction situations. When treating structures, every attempt to create and to maintain a continuous treatment zone must be made.

Application Instructions

Always read the product label completely before use. Shake well before diluting concentrate.

How to use Altriset in just 3 steps:

Altriset is for OUTDOOR USE ONLY and is made to be used as an in-ground subterranean termite treatment to control and prevent termites from infesting your home.

  1. Dig a 6-inch deep by 6-inch wide trench right against and around the outside foundation of your home.
  2. Pour the recommended amount of diluted Altriset into the trench (4 gallons per 10 feet of trench). Mix 1.3 oz. of Altriset per 4 gallons of water (0.34 oz. per gallon). Pour 4 gallons of mixed solution for every 10 feet of trench around your home.
  3. Allow the mixture to seep into the trench. Replace the backfill into the trench, but remember to make sure to mix some of the diluted Altriset with the backfill to achieve a complete barrier.

Each 34 oz. bottle yields 100 gallons of finished solution and treats approximately 250 lineal feet around a structure.

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Ratios:

  • 0.34 oz. (10 mL)/gal. of water – 0.05% a.i. – control of subterranean termites
  • Apply 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 linear feet for continuous barrier treatments.
  • For horizontal treatment zones, apply 1-1.5 gallon(s) at low pressure (no more than 25 psi) to the surface of the soil to be treated per 10 square feet.

For use in the following areas:

For use in pre- and post-construction situations of residential, commercial, and industrial structures, including pre-construction ground treatment and post-construction treatments, such as treatment of unit masonry walls and foundation elements, crawl spaces, basement construction, slabs on grade (such as walkways, patios, driveways, etc.), earth-filled slabs, around structural elements, unit masonry foundations and voids; non-structural elements such as posts, poles, landscape ornamentation or signs; non-edible fruit and nut bearing trees; around outdoor cellulose material.


Although Altriset is labeled for Outdoor Use Only. Altriset may be applied as a foam to wall voids and in stud walls with dry foam only (25:1 expansion ratio). Only apply foam to wall voids where termites or termite damage are detected.


See above for basic trenching applications. Refer to the Product Label for complete information.

Altriset may be used to treat around posts, poles, landscape ornamentation or signs outdoors. Non-edible fruit and nut bearing trees infested with subterranean termites may be treated by drilling into tree cavities or termite galleries or termite carton nests. The surface of the soil under cellulose material such as firewood, stumps, logs, or other outdoor cellulose materials may also be treated at a rate of 1 gallon of finished solution per 10 sq. ft.

  • Halts termite feeding within hours.
  • Provides residual protection for more than five years.
  • Non-repellent chemistry is indiscernible to termites.
  • Behavioral impact on termites enhances translocation throughout the colony.
  • Mode of action like no other termite control product.
  • Excellent environmental and toxicological profile.
  • First and only reduced-risk liquid termiticide.

Extra Tips

  • Keep people and pets out of area being treated during application.
  • Do not contaminate public or private water supplies.
  • Do not treat soil that is frozen or water saturated soil that will not accept the termiticide.
  • Shake well before using.
  • Do not store tank mixture in the tank overnight.
  • Do not treat soil within 5 feet of a well or cistern. When treating soil between 5 and 10 feet of a well or cisterns, the treated backfill method must be used.
  • Unlike many other termiticides, Altriset is only labeled for subterranean termites.
