Rockwell Labs Ltd
Rockwell Labs Ltd has introduced two new granular baits: InVict Xpress and InVict Blitz. Both products combine the power of imidacloprid with Rockwell’s formulation technology to provide PMPs an “unfair advantage” against pests, the firm said.
InVict Xpress can provide a quick kill for a broad spectrum of insects, including ants, cockroaches, crickets, mole crickets, silverfish, firebrats and earwigs, Rockwell reports. No personal protective equipment is required. The product is available nationwide, excepting California, and is limited to PCO use only in New York.
InVict Blitz contains the first bait matrix specifically designed for ant species such as the tawny/Caribbean/Rasberry crazy ants, Argentine ants and big-headed ants. With 0.5 percent imidacloprid, InVict Blitz delivers a heavy attack to the heart of the colony, Rockwell said. Blitz is currently available in Texas, Georgia, Louisiana and Florida.
Both Xpress and Blitz are labeled for indoor areas (including food areas), outdoor and turf use at a rate of 4 to 8 ounces per 1,000 square feet.
