Go Further with New Suspend Flexx Insecticide by Bayer

Suspend®Flexx is a new, innovative general insecticide from Bayer containing leading-edge patented Carrier Technology. Scientifically-proven to maximise the active ingredient, this world-first technology allows the active to be more readily available on surfaces and enhances the efficacy and residual effectiveness.

Suspend Flexx Insecticide

Unlike other general insecticides, Suspend Flexx is not a capsule suspension, nor a micro emulsion.  Its formulation is a matrix capsule that is larger than other micro caps.  Suspend Flexx micro caps have a range of 15-30 μm, with the active (deltamethrin) concentrated up on the surface, not encapsulated inside.

Suspend Flexx can be used both indoors and outdoors, and offers flexible application rates.  It can be used in domestic, commercial and industrial situations, as well as public buildings and structures; including farm buildings, meatworks and poultry sheds.

Daryle Swarz, Pest Market Manager at Bayer, said “Outdoors, Suspend Flexx offers a truly “punchy” performance with enhanced residual.  It is excellent on bricks, mulch, render and concrete, due to this leading-edge technology making it adhere well to surfaces.  It’s flexibility with application rates, also means it’s great to use indoors too.  You can dial in the perfect dose rate to match your service frequency, saving you dollars!

“Suspend Flexx can be used in sensitive food processing areas; as a regular maintenance service at low rates as well as high maintenance sites that require regular cleaning.   A real benefit for PCOs is its flexible label, allowing for extremely low dose rates to be effective, thereby reducing their costs”, Daryle added.
