LIGHT ‘EM UP! with the NEW Gotcha SprayerTM Pro Adaptor

The new Gotcha SprayerTM Pro adaptor features an optional flashlight attachment and improved nylon strap. The Gotcha Sprayer Pro is an adaptor that enables you to trigger aerosols and certain powder (puffer style) dusters from the end of an extension pole, eliminating the need for a ladder. The Gotcha Sprayer Pro is ideal for spraying insects in hard-to-reach areas, as well as dust for carpenter bees up in the rafters, all with the same adaptor and without a ladder.

The ideal time to spray for wasps is in the evening after they have returned to their nest and are the least active. With the NEW Gotcha Sprayer Pro, you can light up their nest and easily see where to spray or dust them without balancing on a ladder or using one hand to hold a flashlight!

The Gotcha SprayerTM Pro is the only product in the industry that can both spray and dust using the same adaptor. Simply remove the aerosol can and insert our powder (puffer style) duster. The same lever that sprays the aerosol also will compress the powder duster. Easily dust for carpenter bees or those aggressive underground yellow jacket nests. Works with extension poles up to 24 feet long.

With the NEW Gotcha Sprayer Pro, it’s easier than ever to Light ‘em Up and Knock ‘em down.

Brigand SB is a ready-to-use soft bait formulated specifically for the U.S. market.

The product is produced using the highest quality ingredients, including food-grade wheat flour, chopped grain, soft lard and synthetic peanut flavoring to produce a high-calorie, high-energy rodenticide.

Synthetic peanut flavoring enhances the attractiveness of the bait to the target rodent, while eliminating nut contamination and allergen risks. Brigand Soft Bait is extremely palatable to both rats and mice and ideal for use in all situations, but especially those where rodents must be tempted away from other available food sources.

Brigand SB is the only soft bait formulation on the market made with soft lard. In particular, lard adds to the intrinsic moisture content of the bait as well as to the palatability of the product and its ability to compete with the rodents’ current food sources. Combining only food grade ingredients with this lard allows Brigand to achieve extremely high palatability rates against competing baits and food sources. Brigand is made with bromadiolone as the active ingredient, which is very safe to non-target domestic animals, making it an ideal baiting solution for residential as well as commercial applications.

Brigand baits are ready-to-use and contain 0.005% w/w bromadiolone. The toxicity profile of bromadiolone shows it is effective in the control of both rats and mice, requiring less than 30% of their daily food consumption to ingest a lethal dose. As with all anticoagulants, accidental poisoning with bromadiolone can be antidoted with Vitamin K1. Brigand SB is available in 0.35oz (10g) packets, which are easily secured in place and sold in 18lb pails.

With the Sentricon System and the Hex-Pro System, Baiting is Best

Can a termite bait be better for your customers, employees and business? Hear what two industry pros say in a recent PCT webinar.

Len Land, owner of Coppermines Pest Control in Murrayville, Ga., began with the Sentricon® System as soon as it was introduced. Then after buying his own company in 2004, Land decided to offer his customers the Hex-Pro® System.

“Beginning in 1995, we took Sentricon to nightmare homes,” Land says. “Homes that needed re-treat after re-treat and chemical after chemical. The bottom line is that it just works in the way we needed it to.”

Mark Nadolski, COO of Russell’s Pest Control in Knoxville, Tenn., has improved his business by using the Sentricon System with Always Active™ technology.

“Baiting is a huge plus for our customers and our technicians. It’s been so effective that our cancellation rate is down,” Nadolski says. “Now that we’re using Sentricon with Always Active, we went from four stops a year plus an annual inspection, to one. Our liability insurance has gone down $60,000. Our termite profits have increased 20 percent.”

For more information on the Sentricon System with Always Active technology or Hex-Pro, contact your Dow AgroSciences account representative or call 800-352-6776.

The poisoning of mountain lions, owls and other animals, along with changing regulatory issues involving second-generation rodenticides, continue to be topics on the forefront of the pest control industry. Changing to reliable first-generation bait will address the concerns of secondary poisoning, regulatory issues and your bottom-line cost on many levels.

J.T. Eaton™ is the innovator of commercial bait blocks for rodent control, and has been the leading provider of first-generation baits for the pest control industry for decades. The proven success of Bait Block® (and its active ingredient diphacinone) has been widely accepted by many as a lower-risk rodenticide. It is accepted as a reliable replacement for stronger, more persistent second-generation baits in many municipal programs.

Bait Block® comes in two flavors — peanut butter and apple — to attract the pickiest of rodents. The aromatic 2-ounce seed and bait matrix blocks are packed in 9-lb pails that comply with the Risk Mitigation Decision. Now there’s no need to carry around a 16-pound (or more) pail in a service vehicle, which already has limited space. Using Bait Block® in your commercial or residential account saves you money with every placement. The 2-ounce block is perfect for your maintenance programs; the cost per ounce is significantly lower than more costly second-generation baits. J.T. Eaton™ Peanut Butter Bait Block® and Apple Bait Block® are available through all major distributors.

EcoVia EC

Rockwell Labs Ltd innovation continues with the introduction of a powerful and versatile new insecticide. EcoVia EC insecticide was created through extensive scientific research and has been proven in the real world. EcoVia EC fills the need for a highly effective, broad spectrum, insecticide while meeting customer and regulatory demands for a green solution. EcoVia EC resolves issues that have plagued other 25(b) concentrates. It mixes and stays in solution easily like a traditional synthetic insecticide, does not exhibit an offensive fragrance at label application rates and is gentler on equipment. The botanical oils in EcoVia EC were specifically chosen because of their efficacy on a wide range of crawling, flying and sucking insect pests, both indoors and outdoors.

The new restrictions on pyrethroid/pyrethrin and neonicotinoid insecticides limit applications in many areas such as impervious surfaces, areas near and over water such as boat docks where spiders inhabit, marshy areas for mosquitoes, or flowering ornamental plants where sucking insects like aphids and white flies create honeydew, which attract ants. EcoVia EC fills the void by permitting broadcast applications in those and many other areas so insect pests can be effectively and safely controlled. Because many state regulatory agencies require the use site, insect, or both to be listed on the product label in order to be listed on a service ticket, input from pest management professionals was sought to ensure locations and pests that are unavailable on most insecticides are now covered, providing use versatility and regulatory compliance.

EcoVia EC is available in 16 and 64 fl oz measuring bottles. For those seeking an insecticide that provides the ultimate in efficacy, versatility and safety, EcoVia EC will provide an “Unfair Advantage” in the field.

Control Ticks at the Source of Lyme Disease

The Select TCS Tick Control System is an easy to use, low maintenance, highly effective treatment to reduce tick populations and the risk of contracting Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.

Lyme disease is a serious and difficult to diagnose disease. In 2013 the CDC announced that there are about 300,000 cases diagnosed annually.

The tick boxes treat the primary hosts of the disease — chipmunks and white footed mice — with a small dose of fipronil. The ticks are killed during the critical larval and nymph stages when they contract the Lyme bacteria and other tick-borne diseases from small rodents. The child-resistant product, which interrupts the transmission cycle of Lyme disease, is EPA approved and will not harm rodents and wildlife.

Reduce tick populations by as much as 80% after just one year and by 97% after two years.

Our product is registered in 25 states plus the District of Columbia.

Only Licensed professionals are authorized to install the Select TCS Tick Control System.

The Select TCS Tick Control System is available to the PCO directly from Tick Box Technology Corporation. Call to become a certified installer!

Be a leader in tick control and help your clients take back their yard!
