| August 30, 2011

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — The Zoëcon Professional Products division of Central Life Sciences announced that Zenprox EC is approved for the control of stink bugs. The pests are presenting a growing infestation problem in more than 30 states and are among the more than 25 insects the broad-spectrum contact-kill product controls.

“With immediate results and extended residual, Zenprox EC offers pest control operators the ideal solution to meet the rising demand for stink bug control,” said John Neberz, business manager, Zoëcon Professional Products. “Pest management professionals have already experienced great success in controlling more than 25 different insects with Zenprox EC, particularly when employed as a tank mix partner with Gentrol IGR or Precor IGR, and they can expect the same effectiveness against stink bugs.”

For optimal effectiveness against stink bugs, Neberz recommends using Zenprox EC for indoor control and Mavrik Perimeter outdoors. The broad-spectrum pyrethroid is approved for use on trees, shrubs and perimeters of structures. For control of stink bugs, Zoëcon recommends a ratio of two fluid ounces of Zenprox EC per gallon of water. Zenprox EC is available in a 16-oz. squeeze-and-measure bottle and comes with six bottles per case. It mixes easily with water and may be applied with most application equipment. Mavrik Perimeter is available in an 8-oz. bottle.

The active ingredient in Zenprox EC, Etofenprox, is non-repellent. Approved for indoor use, Zenprox EC can be used as a broadcast, spot, or crack-and-crevice treatment to control pests in homes, hotels, schools and commercial properties.
