Trap-Alert provides remote monitoring of traps with a module that uses wireless technology. Trap-Alert detects when a trap has been triggered, enabling users to actively monitor the status and location of traps through a web-based application. The Trap-Alert System includes the Trap-Alert web application, an efficient way to manage many traps, Wildlife Control Supplies says. Sensor kits enable retrofitting of existing cages, allowing traps and devices to be changed out on the job by unplugging one device and replacing it with another. Trap-Alert’s rechargeable batteries enable a 45- to 60-day run-time per charge. The strength of the battery and wireless signal for each unit is shown on the Trap-Alert web application and can be accessed on a smartphone.

Designed to look like an electrical/utility box, Bell Laboratories’ newest tamper-resistant bait station, Protecta Evo Circuit, is specialized for accounts where discretion is paramount — restaurants, museums and other public places where customers are sensitive to obvious signs of pest control.
The bait station is designed for use indoors or out, can be positioned horizontally or vertically to hold traps or bait, and comes with bait-securing rods in two sizes. Mounted vertically on walls, Protecta Evo Circuit holds eight 1-ounce bait Blox on four rods. Placed horizontally on the ground or floor, the station holds four 1-ounce bait Blox on the shorter rods, the T-Rex rat snap trap or the mouse-sized Mini-Rex. The rods lock into the station and won’t fall out during servicing, the company said.
The station measures about 9 by 9 by by 4 1/8 inches, is made of heavy-duty, l00 percent recycled injection-molded plastic in black or grey, and has a software-compatible bar code inside the lid and a slot for a service card. It is designed to meet EPA-established protocols for Tier 1 distinction.

It is becoming common for building architects, owners and project managers to implement bird-prevention strategies during the design stage of projects instead of waiting until infestations become a problem, Bird-X said.
Many design features attract pest birds, including potential nesting sites, such as ornamental façades, open vents, HVAC equipment, electrical boxes, open light fixtures, signs and more.
Bird-X said its consultants are able to identify potential problem areas and provide architectural specifications for bird control products that can be built into the facility design from the start, creating a preventive bird control approach that is more efficient, humane, eco-friendly and less expensive than a retrospective control method.

AllPro Vector Group
AllPro Vector Group has developed and registered Envion RTU, a new, ready-to-use, water-based mosquito adulticide for the control of airborne pests such as mosquitoes, biting midges and black flies. As a water-based adulticide, Envion RTU addresses the concern of environmental stewardship by substituting water for oil as the inert ingredient, the company says.
The formulation technology is a third-generation, stable micro-emulsion that does not fall out of solution, allowing for replacement of the oil with water without sacrificing results, according to the manufacturer. Envion RTU is 4 percent permethrin and 4 percent Piperonyl butoxide and can be diluted with water instead of oil diluents.
