WinField introduced Wick adjuvant, a product that can be added to pesticides. Wick is a nonionic textile spreader and penetrant that improves the distribution and effectiveness of pesticides for improved control indoors and out, WinField reports.
This adjuvant enhances both the movement and wicking of insecticides into textile fibers, with minimal effect on carpet stain guards, WinField said. Wick adjuvant also increases the efficacy of indoor crack and crevice treatments; however, to avoid creating a hazardous slippery surface, spray solutions containing the product must be kept away from traffic or walking areas on non-textile or smooth surfaces.
