The handy field guide was designed to provide pest management professionals with immediate access to the most important identification & management information for 100 commonly encountered pests. In the following video, Kramer discusses some of the important changes to the book, which can be ordered online here, or by phone at 800/456-0707.
MILWAUKEE, Wisc. - Several participants took home a $200 gift card after participating in Liphatech's golf challenge at PestWorld 2012, the company announced.
Contestants had two chances to navigate the golf course, and those able to sink a putt then spun the prize wheel for gifts ranging from a mouse pad to a 16-pound pail of Resolv or FirstStrike soft bait. Following a drawing, four participants took home a $200 Visa gift card. The winners were as follows:
- Daniel Fleisher, of Pestex Pest Free Systems, Newtonville, Mass.
- Mark Swihart, of ACE Pest Control, North Webster, Ind.
- Joseph Stehle, of AARD Pest Control, Lynnwood, Wash.

Each of the five schools won 10 bags of Talstar XTRA, featuring FMC's Verge technology, a new product that offers fast elimination of fire ant mounds and season-long protection, FMC said.
"Football and fire ants don't mix," said Adam Manwarren, turf and ornamental product manager for FMC. "But before Talstar XTRA, there was no quick way to get rid of mounds before a game. Now, sports turf professionals can eliminate mounds within 15 minutes and enjoy season-long control through broadcast treatments."
Talstar XTRA is not a restricted-use product, so any grounds professional can apply it, and is on many state "approved products" lists, FMC reports.
