The contest drew hundreds of visitors from across the country to Bell’s website where they had access to the hands-on tools on the Contrac with Lumitrack Detective’s Desk to learn what Lumitrack is, how it works, and how PMPs can benefit from using the bio-fluorescent active, Lumitrack, which makes rodent dropping glow bright green under UV light.

Contrac with Lumitrack was launched in summer 20ll and helps PMPs identify, track and eliminate rodents. The additive is also found in Bell’s non-toxic Detex with Lumitrack BLOX.

Visitors to Bell’s site can access the Lumitrack Detective Desk for more information on using tracking baits, including an article by industry expert Bobby Corrigan - Biomonitoring for Rodents. Go to www.belllabs.com/contrac-with-lumitrack.
