Syngenta expands gel bait production


November 2, 2023



Syngenta announced a multimillion-dollar investment in the production of its industry-leading gel bait 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,” Craig Trumbo, head of supply chain management for Professional Solutions at Syngenta, said in the news release. “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 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 is ensuring 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, the company says.

“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.”
