Tandem Insecticide

Tandem Insecticide is a powerful combination of thiamethoxam and lambda-cyhalothrin. Tandem Insecticide uses the combination of the two active ingredients to provide fast knock down and residual control of more than 90 pests. Use Tandem both indoors and outdoors from "cupboard to curb" in commercial, residential, and food-handling areas. Unique to Syngenta is iCAP microencapsulation technology providing the active ingredients protection against environmental conditions by using different sized capsules.

Tandem also provides systemic control of pests in plants using the active thiamethoxam. This active moves quickly into leaves where honeydew producing pests like aphids, scales, and whiteflies feed killing those pests and in turn limiting the supply of food for other pests such as ants.

In the State of New York, this product may only be applied for indoor uses.

Tandem contains a Group 3A insecticide (lambda-cyhalothrin, belonging to the pyrethroid class of chemistry) and a Group 4A insecticide (thiamethoxam, belonging to the neonicotinoid class of chemistry). Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent resistance to Group 3A or Group 4A insecticides may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 3A or Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by Tandem or other Group 3A or Group 4A insecticides.

    5 of 5 stars  not for uneducated use
    By Brandon in baltimore, md on 09/13/2013

    The poor reviews on this product are based on lack of knowledge and understanding of the chemical and molecular properties of tandem. Tandem is demand CS with an added insecticide. THERE IS NO "CURE-ALL" SPRAY! Spray means nothing. Application and procedure is what matters most. The "smell" is very, very minimal. Like a weak paint thinner. The smell is the detergent in the chemical known as an emulsifier. That allows the oils of the product to bind with water. Before applying ANY chemical to ANYTHING regarding bed bugs, you MUST at LEAST consult information provided by universities such as Perdue, Kentucky, and the like . You MUST also be patient, for the insect has 5 cycles in life. Tandem is an excellent product. Top grade. Pest control has become indescribably better thanks to syngenta, Zoecon, and Bayer. I'd throw BASF in there, but they didn't produce termidor. They bought it from bayer

    5 of 5 stars  its pretty good
    By Roland in Denver , Colorado on 08/09/2017

    So far it's been good. Little pricey but I called around for a pest control service and they wanted 80.00 per application. I haven't put a dint in my stuff and have applied 2 applications so far. Dead spiders everywhere since I've applied this stuff and haven't seen one bug of any type inside. I would say it's worth the extra money because all the major pest control companies use this.

QHow long does Tandem last outdoors?
How long does it last outdoors? Does the stronger rate make it last longer?

ATandem will hold like most other insecticides outdoors which is anywhere from 30-90 days depending on the elements in the area and how they effect it. The stronger rate on the label will provide a quicker knockdown for heavier infestations and can help provide a stronger product for longer on the surface.

QHow does Tandem do on treating Mosquitos? How does it compare to Talstar p?

ATandem is a brand new product but it is showing promise as a mosquito control product. Because it is so new we don't have any comparison information for you at this point. Talstar P is still the most commonly used product for mosquito control. Most pros choose to mix it with Nyguard IGR to sterilize the adults so they cannot lay eggs before they die after coming into contact with treated areas.

QIs Tandem Insecticide or Onslaught FastCap better for spider control?
I will continue purchasing from you, as I will only use the pest control service once yearly. My concern is spiders. Should I purchase Tandem or Onslaught Fastcap from you going forward? Thanks.


Either Tandem or Onslaught FastCap would be great for spiders as they are both micro-encapsulated and, therefore,†easy for these hard-to-kill pests to pick up on their legs and bodies.†Onslaught Fastcap would be the faster kill overall due to the added synergist.

QI have a Taexx system. How do I use it without hiring a pest company?


We do sell products like Optigard Flex and Tandem that can be used in the system, but nothing to technically service it. You would want to try and locate the manufacturer of the system or a local company that has the equipment to service the system for you.

QHow well does Tandem work on controlling mesquitos in the yard and in mulch?

ATandem works awesome in treating Mosquitos in yards and mulch. It is microencapsulated so the active ingredient is protected from the outside elements, therefore offering a more successful kill. It is also specifically labeled for use indoors and out, in lawns, shrubs, etc.

QCan Tandem be used in the attic?
We have a pest company come out and spray but we have a large tree near the house and I think the roaches come in from the attic. I see dead roaches outside but see live ones in the house(large tree roaches).

ATandem is labeled to be applied in the attic following the instructions on the product label.  Please take a moment to read over our article on General Home Pest Control to help prevent these roaches from getting inside.
