Target Specialty Products
Target Specialty Products, a provider of pest control solutions in the U.S. and Canada, now offers a line of professional pest management solutions under its brand name Strike MAX. The company says Strike MAX products are designed to enhance the performance of chemicals commonly used in the pest management industry and are exclusively available at Target Specialty Products.
The first generation of Strike MAX products include Poly MAX, Tank MAX and Clean MAX, which are spray tank adjuvants. These products are designed to be used in conjunction with existing pest management chemistry that PMPs use. Using Strike MAX products ensures product efficacy in extreme weather conditions and in difficult treatment areas, Target Specialty Products says.
“The Strike MAX line is the result of our desire to continue to offer the highest level of value and service to our customers,” said David Helt, Target Specialty Products’ president. “Being able to offer Strike MAX products to our customers will help them get the best results for their applications, every time.”
On Sept. 3, the United States Patent Office issued patent number 10,398,141 to Rockwell Labs for the company’s invention titled “breakable non-flowing gel bait.”
The technology was developed by Rockwell’s founder and CEO Dr. Cisse Spragins in 2005 and first commercialized in 2009 with the launch of the company’s InTice Gelanimo Ant Bait.
The unique rigid gel bait technology provides the high-moisture bait insects are attracted to, in an easy-to-deploy format, giving users “the advantages of liquid bait, and more, but without the mess,” the company says. Target insects are also never at risk of drowning or getting stuck in the bait, which might signal danger to other insects, Rockwell Labs added.
InTice Gelanimo Ant Bait contains borax as the active ingredient and is available in simple-to-use 0.25-ounce stations, in 4-ounce cups that fit in the InTice Border Patrol System station for large colony baiting and in boxes of five 35-gram syringes.

“Each year we have the opportunity to demonstrate innovation and equip clients with the tools they need to be successful,” shared CEO Bill Turk. “This fresh take on our former Sales Kit includes the necessary tools and insight at an easy-to-handle price point.”
The basic Sales Kit includes: the TAP Sales Training Manual, Evidence Notebook, a sample of TAP Pest Control Insulation, an Insulation Demo Tube, Tri-fold Brochures, Leave Behind Door Hangers, Ask Me About TAP Buttons, What’s in the Attic? sales flyers, and access to the firm’s provider website. The enhanced version includes a TAP Thermal Demo Unit and a 60-minute training webinar led by a member of the TAP Client Support and Training team.
