Executive Pest Control Products
Executive Pest Control Products’ Puffer Duster now features a new clear look body designed to let PMPs see the volume of product inside. The bellows-type Puffer Duster has an easy-to-use low tension spring to help alleviate fatigue for the user, the manufacturer says. It also incorporates an O-ring on the clean-out rod to help seal and prevent escape of air and dust from the back of the Puffer. The plastic safety tip and cap on the barrel helps to prevent a shock hazard when working around electrical outlets, prevents leakage when not in use and is removable to allow for applications with wall injectors or in tight spaces.

Nisus Corporation’s Niban Granular Bait is one tool Florida PMPs can use for the control of giant African land snails and other common pests, the firm reports.
Eighteen months after a Miami-Dade County outbreak, the giant African land snail is spreading rapidly, Nisus reports. The snails can carry disease and are a danger to crops, as they consume at least 500 different kinds of plants, and can threaten structures while munching on stucco and concrete, Nisus said.
Nisus reports that Niban is attractive to these pests, and features a borate mineral salt as its active ingredient. The active ingredient is combined with a bait made from corn cob granules mixed with oils, which interferes with the pests’ metabolic ability to break down sugars to extract energy from their food. Niban is a weatherized bait that remains effective in heat, sunlight and 4 inches of rain, Nisus said.

FMC Professional Solutions
FMC Professional Solutions is offering a new back plate option for its Verifi bed bug detector. PMPs now can hang the detectors securely while still servicing them easily, the firm says. The Verifi back plate is available in packages of 12.
The Verifi back plate can be installed on walls, FMC reports. Once the plate is installed, the activated Verifi unit slides in place for monitoring, and easily slides out for inspection or reactivation. The exposed sides of the back plate employ the same texture as the Verifi devices, so bed bugs can easily climb into the pitfall, whether they move up the device or up the plate, FMC reports.
The Verifi bed bug detector provides continuous detection of bed bugs for up to 90 days. PMPs can use the device for year-round monitoring in many locations.
