PHILADELPHIA – FMC Global Professional Solutions has announced that the U.S. Department of Defense has selected the company’s EndZone Insecticide Sticker for authorized use by the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB) and has assigned the stickers a National Stock Number. In conjunction with the product’s selection, Dr. Dina Richman, FMC Professional Solutions’ pest product development manager, presented a workshop on EndZone stickers at the 2015 AFPMB Pest Management Workshop this past spring.
Designed to give pest professionals a unique service option, EndZone stickers offer a discreet solution for the control of filth flies including house, little house, phorid, blow, flesh and fruit flies and fungus gnats. EndZone delivers fast-acting, long-lasting filth fly control in both residential and commercial accounts, used both indoors and outside, FMC reports.
The stickers employ a formulation of acetamiprid – an active ingredient found in Transport Mikron insecticide – plus an insect food source on a four-and-one-quarter inch square sticker. The stickers are applied to surfaces near where flies congregate with a recommended coverage of at least one sticker per 1,000 cubic feet.
"Filth flies are more than just a nuisance -- they can spread bacteria and other disease-causing organisms," said Richman. "EndZone stickers start to kill filth files in less than one minute after ingestion and provide up to seven months residual action indoors and four months of residual action outdoors."
