Minneapolis, August 12, 2020 – MGK is excited to introduce Sumari® Insecticide, a brand-new, all-in-one solution that provides fast-acting and long-lasting residual control of ants, including multi-queen species. Sumari incorporates the proven power of NyGuard® IGR (insect growth regulator) for maximum efficacy.

“The development of Sumari was driven by the feedback we received from Pest Management Professionals. So, we are super excited to offer Sumari as an ant control tool designed to enhance PMPs’ business,” said Steve Gullickson, president of MGK.

Sumari was created specifically for PMPs. During development, the MGK team identified several areas PMPs found challenging with ant control that were lacking in current product offerings on the market.

“With Sumari, treatments can be made with confidence even outdoors against challenging pest ant species, including multi-queen and multi-nest colonies, for 90 days,” said Jessica Strange-George, research and development department manager at MGK. “Excellent formulation stability means less tank agitation, and the combination of long-lasting residual and IGR reduces time spent tank-mixing different formulations. Sumari provides everything you need in an ant control concentrate in one bottle.”

Sumari’s versatility really distinguishes it from other products. In addition to ants, Sumari kills a wide variety of pests, including aphids, flies, fleas, mosquitoes and more. With no signal word and minimal PPE requirements (no gloves, goggles or respirators), mixing and application are simplified, saving PMPs both time and money.

“We designed Sumari to simplify ant control.  With its flexible label, PMPs only need one product for indoor and outdoor use, including outdoor broadcast applications,” said Brian Krelitz, senior marketing manager at MGK.
