Bell Laboratories Adds Biomarker to Non-Toxic DETEX Bait

Rodent Control Products

Manufacturer press release | November 4, 2009

MADISON, Wis – Bell Laboratories introduces non-toxic DETEX BLOX now with Biomarker, a non-toxic substance that aids monitoring by making rodent droppings glow under black light.

The special additive, visible only under black light, makes it easy to detect and identify rodent feces.  Droppings from rodents that have consumed DETEX with Biomarker appear normal color under regular light but glow a bright neon green under black light.
 
New DETEX Biomarker is designed for monitoring rodent activity in schools, food warehouses, and other sensitive accounts. Under black light, the “glowing” droppings make it easier to track rodent movement and identify rodent harborage and nesting areas. Pre-baiting with non-toxic DETEX also ensure ready acceptance when bait is substituted.
 
Monitoring with DETEX Biomarker has many advantages, Bell reports: Droppings containing biomarker are easier to locate and help PMPs identify the specific species and size of the infestation.  They better identify rodent runways which aids in more accurately placing control measures, whether it’s traps or bait. And, active burrows become visible under black light.
 
“DETEX has long been a monitoring staple for PMPs.  Now, with biomarker, it’ll give the industry more information on the nature and extent of rodent presence wherever it’s used,” noted Suzy Pursell, Bell’s Product Manager.
