SUSSEX, UK - Pest Trader, an international product distribution business owned by UK West Sussex-based Xenex Associates, acquired in early September 2013 the worldwide intellectual property and production capability of the Exoroach Station from Exosect Limited for an undisclosed sum.

Pest Trader had already been marketing the product in North America, Asia and some European markets.

Rob Fryatt, director of the business commented: “As we know the product and customers well, we understood that we needed to quickly develop a pack and approach that that makes the PT Exoroach Station easier for the pest manager to purchase and use. As a result, the product is now available in an easy to assemble and use pack of five units complete with individual installation kits. We have separated the consumable unit from the service kit and this is now available as a separate pack of 30 units to replenish the PT Exoroach units.”

The PT Exoroach Station can be used in sensitive accounts such as cruise ships with a short turn-round time and high humidity conditions. The product is a complete pesticide free roach control system, not just a monitoring tool, that has approval for use in certified organic premises.
