Building on the versatility of Bell’s triangular RTU Mouse Bait Station, the new Protecta Evo Mouse takes mouse bait stations “a step further,” said Bell Product Manager Kate Mella. Protecta Evo Mouse is designed to give PMPs a choice in bait to use — either Blox or soft bait. Its increased bait storage capacity holds two Blox of bait, twice as much as RTU, which allows more mice to feed from a single station. For soft bait, Evo Mouse has bait rods to securely hold soft bait sachets. Its patent-pending, internal teeth clamp onto the soft bait paper, minimizing paper displacement. To reduce service time, Protecta Evo Mouse utilizes a single-locking mechanism that locks automatically when closed and unlocks with the Evo single-lock key.
Manufactured from a plastic polymer, the station’s one-piece construction with “living hinge” is built to withstand extreme environmental conditions indoors and out, giving PMPs years of service, the company said.

Marathon Data Systems
Marathon Data Systems’ PestPac LogIt is designed to replace manual logs utilized in sanitation audits in food and medical processing plants. The new iPad application serves as a digital logbook for pest control companies servicing these plants, creating a new, seamless and digital auditing process, Marathon reports.

Working in conjunction with Marathon Mobile, technicians can easily capture and scan pest activity, record actions taken and capture important signatures. The data syncs with PestPac LogIt’s application to produce robust trending reports and charts. All of the data, documents and reports sync back to PestPac and are stored on an iPad, creating an easy-to-use digital logbook.
“The log book plays a critical role in ensuring the safety of the products delivered by food and medical processing plants; PestPac LogIt improves the traditional model,” said Chris Sullens, CEO and president of Marathon Data Systems. “Our new PestPac LogIt software takes the traditional three-ring binder and transforms it to match the needs of modern pest control companies.
