Bell Introduces Crime Scene-Themed RPM Guide

The company’s new Rodent Pest Management Guide designed to bring out the ‘inner detective’ in technicians.

| July 20, 2012

MADISON, WIS. –   Bell Laboratories’ new Rodent Pest Management (RPM) Guide will bring out the “inner detective” in technicians as it takes a crime scene approach to solving and controlling rodent infestations.

The 16-page booklet covers the major areas of rodent pest management, plus the latest information on bait station security, non-toxic pest management, and tracking baits.

Designed like a detective’s office, the booklet opens with in-depth profiles of the usual suspects – Norway rats, roof rats and house mice, a.k.a. “The Burrower,” The Climber,” and “The Invader,” respectively - including a full rundown on their biology, behavior, and sensory capabilities.

The guide, like good detective work, then walks technicians through a thorough inspection of the scene, so they can determine the rodent species involved, the severity of the infestation, and high activity areas.
    
And, of course, there’s the motive - what led to the infestation?  You guessed it.  Harborage, poor sanitation, and a lack of rodent proofing are addressed, along with descriptive photos, and ways to correct the problem.

Choosing the right product to control the infestation takes technicians to easy-to-read descriptions of Bell’s baits and bait formulations, along with key principles to successful baiting.  

New to this edition is a primer on Lumitrack, a special additive incorporated into bait that makes it easy for PMPs to identify, track and eliminate rodents.

The booklet explores all control options, including a non-toxic approach to pest management using mechanical traps and adhesives.  It wraps up with a line-up of Bell’s tamper-resistant bait stations, spotlighting the new time-saving EVO stations, and Bell’s pre-baited T1 Rat and T1 Mouse Bait Stations. These Bell-certified Tier 1 stations are tamper-resistant to children and dogs, as well as weather resistant.

The RPM Guide is available through Bell distributors and technical sales representatives.
