The new highly-attractive Talon Track monitoring paste from Syngenta will help early detection of rodent pest populations, and ensure a smooth transition to the highly-effective Talon Soft for rapid pest control.

The fully integrated approach to rodent control now involves initial tracking with Talon Track, to identify pest activity; treating with Talon Soft to quickly control populations; and then monitoring for future re-infestation with Talon Track.

Talon Track has the same high palatability, texture and ‘look and feel’ to the complementary Talon Soft rodenticide. The only difference is that it is non-toxic and an off-white colour, to aid differentiation for operators when swapping from Track to the blue Talon Soft.

Syngenta UK Business Manager, Daniel Lightfoot, highlighted Syngenta Professional Pest Management continues to develop innovative solutions to pest control issues. It provides a wide range of pest management products for professional use, including the recently launched Talon Track.

“The non-toxic Talon Track enables constant monitoring for signs of rodent infestation, including in sensitive areas, such as food preparation or storage facilities,” advised Daniel.

Monitoring pest populations is an integral part of compliance with industry best practice and regulatory requirements for targeted use of rodenticides, according to Syngenta Technical Manager, Kai Sievert.

“Just like the active composition of Talon Soft rodenticide, the formulation of Talon Track is highly palatable and attractive to rodents. That encourages rodents to enter bait stations and commence feeding, which increases the chance of detecting pest infestation early and the opportunity to stop populations building up.

 “With Talon Track professional operators now have a proven effective option to monitor and track pest populations, and ensure the optimum timing for control intervention,” he added.   

Talon Track is supplied in 300g cartridges, for quick and clean application using a caulking gun. It is extremely stable and should remain highly palatable for weeks after application. Operators can use a bait box liner or tray to initially place the Talon Track, which can be simply and cleanly lifted and replaced with the active Talon Soft when required.
