02 November 2023, USA: To help address ongoing supply chain challenges and the growing need for effective gel baits at scale, Syngenta is proud to announce a multimillion-dollar investment in the production of its industry-leading gel baits for professional pest management. Syngenta is implementing innovative technology to significantly expand the capacity of gel bait syringes produced to deliver the solutions pest management professionals (PMPs) need to grow and operate successful businesses.

“Amid the supply chain challenges in recent years, it was clear the industry needed a more robust supply of effective gel baits,” said Craig Trumbo, head of supply chain management for Professional Solutions at Syngenta. “By investing in the production of our gel baits, we can now meet the needs of PMPs by providing more gel baits, more often.”

Syngenta gel baits offer more targeted control of pests like ants and cockroaches. PMPs can expect to see increased production of the following trusted solutions:

  • Advion® Cockroach gel bait
  • Advion Evolution cockroach gel bait
  • Advion Ant gel bait
  • Optigard® Cockroach gel bait
  • Optigard Ant gel bait

In addition to its technology investment, Syngenta has ensured its raw material and packaging suppliers are aligned with the increased production volume. These investments also enable Syngenta to continue developing new gel baits that will be produced for the pest control market in the coming years.

“PMPs face enough challenges running their businesses, and a lack of access to effective gel baits should not be one of them,” said Marshall Gaster, head of marketing for Professional Pest Management at Syngenta. “We’re proud to support the industry by continuing to invest in increased gel bait production to ensure we can meet PMPs’ needs today and in the future.”
