Dupont Altriset Termiticide 34 oz Altriset™ works by paralyzing the mouths of termites within hours of ingestion, stopping further damage immediately. But Altriset™ doesn't stop there. It also increases termites' already social behavior. They groom and exchange food, therefore spreading Altriset™ to other colony members.
Here's how it works:
In fact, studies show that when used in accordance with the label, just one application of Altriset™ protects your home from termites for years to come.
Results may vary slightly by location. Your Altriset™ termite control professional can outline specific performance guidelines for your region.
After treatment, there are simple steps you can take to ensure maximum results, including:
The First Termiticide That Doesn't Make You Compromise Using a termiticide no longer means choosing to protect your home or the environment. Altriset™ has both unparalleled termite protection AND an excellent environmental profile.
No signal word The U.S. EPA requires that all registered pesticides display a signal word on the label, such as "warning" or "caution," depending on the level of toxicity. Altriset™ is the exception. It is the first and only liquid termiticide that does not have any signal word. This is a breakthrough accomplishment based on extensive research and is currently unequaled in the professional pest control industry.
Unique first aid instructions
Altriset™ is the first professional termiticide that does not require any specific first aid intervention if anyone is accidentally exposed.
No special personal protective equipment needed to apply
Likewise, when applying Altriset,™ the termite control professional treating your home is not required by the label to wear special personal protective equipment such as gloves and eyewear.
Low impact on beneficial organisms
Although Altriset™ is extremely effective on termites, its unique chemistry is targeted so that it has little impact on the organisms you do want in your yard—such as honey bees and earthworms.
The First New Termiticide in Nearly 10 YearsImagine using a computer from the 1990s. You could still get things done, but at a much slower and simpler pace. It just wouldn’t make sense today.
Yet while technology has advanced around us, termiticide chemistry has remained virtually the same. You probably didn’t notice, but DuPont sure did. And decided to do something about it.
Enter Altriset.™ By mimicking a substance found in certain tree bark, DuPont scientists were able to create a breakthrough mode of action that works unlike any other.
Altriset™ targets and paralyzes the mouths of termites to stop them from feeding within hours. Altriset™ also clings to their bodies undetected and enhances social behavior so that it is spread quickly throughout the colony. Your home is termite-free within three months and fully protected for years to come.
But DuPont didn’t stop there. The superior environmental profile of Altriset™ means it’s the first liquid termiticide that doesn’t require any special personal protective equipment to apply, and there are no specific first aid requirements.

Q: Can this be spray inside the home? And if it will paralyze the mouth of the termites, will it do anything to my full grown lab?
A: Altriset is for use in controlling termites through trenching, rodding, short rodding, sub slab injection, wood injection systems, wall void injection systems, reticulation systems (both sub slab and wall voids) and foam delivery systems. • Apply ALTRISET™ termiticide using a rate of 0.05% to control subterranean termites. • ALTRISET™ termiticide is formulated as a water-based suspension concentrate. • ALTRISET™ termiticide may not be completely effective unless conducive conditions (i.e., moisture problems, direct soil contact) are corrected. Need to keep your pets out of the area until completely dry and it is not labeled for use inside the home as a general spray.
Q: Is this still manufactured by DuPont? Will it be the red bottle that I get?
A: This item is no longer manufactured by DuPont. DuPont was bought out by Syngenta a couple of years ago, however, this is the exact same item just a different manufacture now.
