1- to-96-hour Sumari chart showing the impact on brood over time by species.

These charts demonstrate the complete efficacy of Sumari on both the workers and brood of several important structural pest ant species. As is shown, this formulation impacts both the current and future generation of the colony, leading to highly effective control.

Impact on Brood Over Time

This study on colony fragments was initiated with a pre-determined volume of brood comprised of eggs, larvae and pupae. At onset of the study, the colony was assigned a brood rating of “5”. If an active has no impact on the brood, the rating will remain “5”, whereas various levels of negative impact on brood quantity will score as “4-1”, with “1” showing the highest brood impact. This graph demonstrates Sumari’s ability to eradicate brood of even the toughest to control pest ant species within four days, and often as quickly as 24 hours after application.

Worker Mortality Over Time

Worker ants supporting test colony fragments located on treated surfaces were observed for up to four days post-treatment. Results obtained on these three structural pest species indicate onset of mortality within hours of exposure, while efficacy being slow enough for the contaminated workers to return to the colony and contaminate non-foraging nestmates, brood and queen(s). Active foragers from all three species were eliminated within three days post-treatment.
