Going, Glowing, Gone – Syngenta release new Talon Glow

BPCA Manufacturing and Distributor member Syngenta has released a new addition to the Talon rodenticide range.


Talon® Glow has an integrated UV tracer that reveals when target pests have been successfully treated. 

The name Talon Glow was selected by pest controllers at PPC Live earlier this year, as a name that best reflected the benefits of the product for operators.

The level of rodent faeces showing the UV tracer after treatment enables operators to identify when populations of rats and mice have taken bait – thereby only baiting for the appropriate time.

Containing the same single-feed brodifacoum active across the Talon range, the new formulation gives complete resistance breaking control for challenging rodent populations.

Launching the product ready for the autumn rodenticide season, Syngenta Professional Solutions Business Manager, Daniel Lightfoot, said the technology is an important step in the effective stewardship and best use of brodifacoum baits.

“The UV tracer is a useful tool to give confidence in the results, and to demonstrate to customers how effective Talon Glow has been,” advocated Daniel.

“It will be an extremely valuable addition to the growing family of well proven and popular Talon rodenticides.”
