SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. — Target Specialty Products announced the next in its Business Growth Webinar series, “Taurus Dry: Target Termites at the Source.” The free webinar is scheduled for Thursday, July 22, at 10:30 a.m. PST/1:30 p.m. EST, and features Heather Erskine, technical services manager and PCO for Control Solutions Inc.
Taurus Dry is a new dry flowable (DF) product with active ingredient fipronil labeled for all species of termites and designed for application with the Precision Delivery System, CSI’s new patent-pending DF application device. The small particles flow anywhere air can flow, reaching deep into shelter tubes, galleries, nests, voids and other hard-to-reach locations, allowing PMPs to take the fight directly to termites at their source, says the supplier. Applications are non-repellant and manage almost any termite in almost any situation, according to CSI.
Erskine brings a unique background and pest management experience earned while working for more than 10 years on her family-owned golf course and cow-calf operation in Florida. Erskine received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in entomology with a specialization in urban pest management from the University of Florida. Following her time at UF, she joined CSI and gained several years of experience as project manager on the product development team.
In her role as a PCO technical services manager, Erskine works with university researchers and industry cooperators to test products and build data packages. She also supports CSI’s sales and marketing teams and the pest management industry on behalf of CSI.
“We are excited to team up with CSI to showcase Taurus Dry, their new dry flowable product that targets all species of termites,” said David Helt, Target Specialty Products president. “Taurus Dry can truly change the approach to termite management.”
