| January 24, 2011

ST. LOUIS, MO. – BASF Pest Control Solutions introduces a new SmartSolution for German Cockroaches that combines a range of products to overcome common cockroach treatment challenges, such as bait aversion and chemical resistance.

“The SmartSolution for German Cockroaches is for pest management professionals (PMPs) who require quick results, as well as effective long-term control,” said Nick Tresslar, marketing manager for BASF Pest Control Solutions.

“Commercial kitchens, for example, provide perfect habitats for cockroaches given the many voids, cracks and crevices that remain undisturbed by the day-to-day operation of the facility,” Tresslar said. “Our SmartSolution offers an array of products that can be applied in these tight, hidden areas. The solution also offers inspection tips on how to break a large facility down into smaller pieces to help determine which product is the best to use in the micro habitats that form in these areas.”

The SmartSolution for German Cockroaches includes baits, contact insecticides and residual insecticides including Prescription Treatment® brand:

  • Alpine® Cockroach Gel Baits (reservoir and piston can)
  • Avert® Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait Formula 1
  • Cy-Kick® CS
  • Phantom® Pressurized Insecticide
  • P.I.® Contact Insecticide Formula 1

“For our pressurized insecticides, PMPs should work with our System III® as it optimizes the flow of product for precise, controllable applications into cockroach harborage areas,” Tressler said.

The SmartSolution for German Cockroaches is just one of BASF’s SmartSolutions that address pest control challenges and issues. For more information on SmartSolutions for ants, termites, bed bugs, rodents or occasional invaders, visit: www.pestcontrol.basf.com.
