Zenivex adulticide from Central Life Sciences received approval from the EPA for mosquito control efforts over cropland and pastureland. (California, Florida and New York state registrations are pending.) Zenivex contains a unique type of pyrethroid (Etofenprox) and does not contain PBO, the company said, adding that it is a non-ester pyrethroid, which makes it effective against adult mosquitoes (including those resistant to organophosphates). As a result of the approval, Zenivex may now be applied by ground or aerial application over crops or to areas where drift over cropland could occur.
The crop approval applies to both Zenivex E20 and Zenivex E4 RTU, which are oil-based formulations designed for use in ultra-low volume (ULV) applications. With the active ingredient Etofenprox, the product provides quick, permanent knockdown of adult mosquitoes, the firm said.

Berner International Corp. has introduced the HL Series, a comprehensive line of air curtains designed for hazardous industrial environments. The HL Series is designed for petroleum refineries, food-processing and pharmaceutical plants, chemical facilities and compressed natural gas (CNG) bus garages.
Featuring numerous cabinet lengths and motor horsepower selections, the product line restricts energy losses and the infiltration of fumes, airborne contaminants and flying insects by separating indoor and outdoor environments at open industrial doorways. The HL Series construction is based on explosion-proof motors, spark-resistant fans, HL electrical components and construction, and other precautions required by ANSI/NFPA-70 National Electrical Code (NEC) regulations. Standard construction complies with Class I, Division 1 and 2, Groups C and D for gases; and Class II, Division 1 and 2, Groups F and G for dust. Optional construction is available for Groups A and B.
HL Series units are factory assembled in single-length units, from 3- to 16-foot-long cabinets that don’t require intermediate installation supports. The product line also features Berner’s proprietary explosion-proof motors ranging from 1/2 to 15 hp and heavy-duty blowers to protect doorway heights of 6 to 20 feet. Optional steam or hot-water coils with a 130°F to 180°F temperature range are available with custom-constructed ANSI/NFPA-70-compliant aluminum chassis.
