Altriset

ALTRISET IS A NEW REDUCED-RISK NON-REPELLENT TERMITICIDE THAT PROVIDES EXCELLENT CONTROL OF SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES WITH MINIMAL IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT.

Altriset will eliminate termites in less than three months and will protect your home or business for more than 5 years when used in accordance with the label. Once termites come into contact with Altriset, their ability to feed on wood is halted within hours, resulting in death. The product is slowly passed throughout the colony by touch and contact, causing total colony elimination. Altriset's new class of chemistry provides a high-performing and long-lasting residual termite control product that is also safe to use--In addition to requiring no signal word on the label, DuPont Altriset Termiticide is the first and only liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk under the U.S. EPA reduced-risk program: Altriset requires no special safety equipment, represents no health risk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed, and is safer for the environment.



Is Altriset Better than Termidor?

Altriset introduces a whole new type of chemistry that is similar but different than Termidor SC. Both products are transferred throughout the termite colony for total colony elimination. However, unlike Termidor, Altriset is the first and only termiticide labeled Reduced-Risk by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Excellent Environmental Profile:

Dupont Altriset is a highly effective way to control termites while also minimizing impact on the environment. Altriset also has an excellent environmental and toxicological profile ? requiring no signal word on the label.

Product Features:

  • Eliminates termites in less than three months when used in accordance with the label.
  • 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.


  • Now there is a non-repellent termiticide that provides excellent control of termites yet has minimal impact on the environment. The team of scientists at DuPont has developed another new class of chemistry with this latest innovation, providing high-performing termite control and soil residual for ongoing structural protection.

    DuPont? Altriset? the first soil-applied liquid termiticide launched in almost a decade is in a class of chemistry with a mode of action like no other termite control product. Laboratory and field study results prove Altriset? halts termite feeding within hours while providing termite elimination for critical long-term structural protection. Plus, Altriset? offers an excellent toxicological and environmental profile. In addition to requiring no signal word on the label, DuPont? Altriset? is the first and only liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk under the U.S. EPA reduced-risk program.

    Mode of Action:

    Altriset is the first termiticide product featuring an active ingredient from the anthranilic diamide class of chemistry. The class was inspired by research into the insecticide properties of a natural substance found in the bark of trees and shrubs of the genus Ryania. Calteryx, the active ingredient in Altriset, is a synthetic compound that affects the ryanodine receptors in the insect muscle fiber. These receptors regulate the flow of calcium into the cell cytoplasm to control muscle contraction. Altriset binds to the ryanodine and causes it to remain open, resulting in a depletion of calcium ions that disrupts muscle contraction. Altriset was designed to target ryanodine receptors of specific insects such as termites.
