FMC Introduces Verifi Back Plate

Supplier News

The plate helps PMPs hang detectors securely while still servicing them easily, FMC reports.

| April 16, 2013

PHILADELPHIA – FMC Professional Solutions is offering a new back plate option for the Verifi bed bug detector. Now, pest management professionals can hang the detectors securely while still servicing them easily, FMC reports. The Verifi Back Plate is available in packages of 12 through pest management distribution channels throughout the United States and Canada.

The Verifi back plate can be easily installed on walls using a drill, screws and the provided anchors. Once the plate is installed, the activated Verifi unit slides in place for monitoring, and easily slides out for inspection or reactivation. The exposed sides of the back plate employ the same texture as the Verifi devices, so bed bugs can easily climb into the pitfall, whether they move up the device or up the plate.

"Our customers told us they needed this new back plate option and we delivered," said Catherine Bernard of FMC. "Pest management professionals can use the back plate for ongoing, long-term bed bug detection or install multiple plates in facility 'hot spots,' and then move detectors to those spots when complaints occur."

When moving the Verifi bed bug detectors from one room to another, follow pest management protocol by carefully inspecting the detectors and cleaning them with CB-40 insecticide, so infestations are not spread accidentally. A new Verifi CO2 booster pack should also be activated when moving the detectors to a new location.
