BBK Provides Bed Bug Relief

Zenprox® EC & Zenprox® Aerosol Insecticides with Broad Appeal

Zenprox® EC and Zenprox® Aerosol from Zoëcon Professional Products are two formulations of an insecticide that controls a broad-spectrum of prolific pests such as fleas, bed bugs (adults and newly hatched bed bug nymphs), ants, cockroaches and more!

Zenprox® EC is a concentrate that has a long residual, is non-repellent and is designed for indoor use in both commercial and residential accounts for control of over 25 different insects. It can be highly effective in a tank mix with Gentrol® IGR or Precor® IGR to create a team to help eliminate infestations and keep them from coming back. Zenprox® Aerosol can be used both inside and out in hard-to-reach areas, such as a spot or crack-and-crevice treatment. It is especially effective on bed bugs and is approved for spot treatment to bed frames, box springs and mattresses.

Both Zenprox formulations provide broad-spectrum control and contain Etofenprox, an ether pyrethroid, not the typical ester chemical structure currently on the market. Zenprox ether formulations aid in providing quicker knockdown, greater residual action and versatile broad spectrum control.

Hex-Pro® Termite Baiting System

For more than a decade, hexaflumuron, the active ingredient in Shatter® termite bait, which is used in the Hex-Pro® Termite Baiting System, has provided effective, environmentally sensible control of termites. It’s considered environmentally sensible because it uses a minimal amount of Shatter termite bait to treat the termite colony only where termite activity is discovered or expected.

Here’s how the Hex-Pro System works: First, a professional inspection of the home for signs of termites is completed. Then, Hex-Pro termite stations are placed in the soil in prime termite-foraging areas around the property. Hex-Pro termite stations are then monitored regularly for signs of termite activity. When termites are found in the Hex-Pro termite stations, they are transferred to a bait cartridge that replaces the wood monitors. Termites feed on the bait cartridge, which contains Shatter termite bait, and tunnel back to their colony, sending their nestmates back to feed on the bait. Generally, after several weeks, the termite colony declines and eventually is destroyed. After the termites have been controlled, used bait cartridges are replaced with wood monitors. The pest control operator continues to check for signs of new termite activity as long as the service agreement continues. The Hex-Pro® System provides peace of mind for the homeowner.

The active ingredient in Shatter termite bait received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative, which is based on: its low impact on human health, low toxicity to birds, fish and plants, and low potential for groundwater contamination compared with other commercially available alternatives.

The Hex-Pro System is a product from Dow AgroSciences — a recognized leader in termite solutions and the first company to develop a monitor/bait system more than 15 years ago. With the visible Hex-Pro termite stations and ongoing monitoring by a pest management professional, homeowners are reassured their homes are protected from subterranean termites.

The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ Technology

Dow AgroSciences continues to advance the industry by joining today’s emerging technologies with a vision of tomorrow’s needs. Always Active™ technology, the latest innovation to the Sentricon® System, combines new bait technology, annual monitoring and LID (Locate and Identify) technology to give business owners even more power and flexibility.

Recruit® HD termite bait is immediately available to termites in every Sentricon station at installation. As soon as they find the Sentricon station, termites can begin feeding on Recruit HD termite bait and share it with others, beginning the colony elimination process and offering constant property protection from termites.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency granted Dow AgroSciences annual monitoring for Recruit HD termite bait in April 2010. It is an environmentally responsible treatment, so Certified Sentricon Specialists™ of the Sentricon System can meet the growing demand for “green” products that work. Recruit HD termite bait contains a revolutionary bait matrix that extends durability. It also contains 2.3 times more active ingredient than Recruit IV termite bait, more than enough to eliminate a typical termite colony. In termite palatability tests and field trials, Recruit® HD termite bait was preferred over wood, devoured faster than wood and became even more preferable and palatable over time, even when wet, cracked or moldy. It continues to protect no matter the soil conditions, weather or season.

Always Active technology allows Certified Sentricon Specialists the ability to choose the service interval that best fits with their business model. This new technology can help Certified Sentricon Specialists increase route efficiency and reduce labor costs because they are only required to service the Sentricon System annually. When given the choice, homeowners preferred the Sentricon® System with Always Active technology over other treatment options.2

LID technology is a labor-saving enhancement that helps technicians service sites and locate Sentricon stations that may be covered by grass or landscaping. LID technology uses a radio-frequency identification (RFID) sensor in the top cap to give each Sentricon station a unique identity, which saves valuable time when locating and servicing stations.

The Sentricon System with Always Active technology is a unique product, patent pending by Dow AgroSciences, that helps Certified Sentricon Specialists differentiate their offering for a competitive advantage in the marketplace. For more information on the Sentricon System with Always Active technology, contact your Dow AgroSciences account representative or call Dow AgroSciences at 800/352-6776.
