Roll Introduces the Mosquito 86 Backpack System

The system has been specially designed for pest control applicators.

| November 11, 2009

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Roll, a developer and marketer of liquid delivery systems to eradicate and control various insect pests, announced the launch of a new professional control application system. The Mosquito 86 Backpack System is specially designed for pest control applicators.

This mosquito elimination system is available as a complete backpack kit that features a Kawasaki leaf blower and a new patented tank frame that promises to maximize mobility and reduce on-the-job fatigue and discomfort. The system will also soon be available in a side tank design that comes with a custom adapter to fit leading backpack blower models. The Mosquito 86 Backpack System presents a new business opportunity for commercial users who can enhance their services and draw more revenue from their existing account base, the company reports.

The Mosquito 86 systems use liqui-shear technology to disperse a water dilution of a permethrin-based pesticide solution known as Mosquito 86 Agent ETM. Mosquito 86’s aerial application method dispenses both very fine aerosol droplets that stay aloft and kill mosquitoes on contact, and larger droplets that fall to leave a barrier residue for longer term protection. Mosquito 86 Agent E is EPA registered for use in all 50 states and proven effective, the company reports.
