Bell Laboratories

Bell Laboratories says it continues to be committed to ensuring pest management professionals have the most tools possible in the fight against disease and damage caused by rodents, despite regulatory challenges in the industry. With that mission in mind, Bell announced the launch of its newly registered rodenticide: Contrac California Bromethalin Soft Bait. Contrac California Soft Bait is made with the single-feed acute active ingredient bromethalin. Its 8-gram sachets and palatable oil-based formulation is expected to provide PMPs the confidence and results they have been accustomed to when using Bell’s other Contrac products, the company says.

Registered only for use in the state of California, Contrac California Bromethalin Soft Bait specifically meets all state regulatory requirements for structural rodenticide use. Available for shipment now, EPA Registration No. 12455-159, the product is packaged in a 16-pound pail with a blue lid for easy differentiation.



Pest Management and Public Health, a business within the Environmental Science division of Bayer, is offering PMPs its fall savings program through Oct. 31.

“At Bayer, we know PMPs never compromise when it comes to protecting customers, and choosing the right products is half the battle,” said Joern Kraegeloh, head of marketing for Pest Management and Public Health North America at Bayer. “We are celebrating our fall promotion with big savings on trusted pest control products, so now is the perfect time to plan to protect your customers’ homes and businesses from pests.”

This year, qualified purchases during the promotion could receive a six-month Bayer Rodent Monitoring System (RMS) subscription at no cost. (“Qualified purchases” are defined as more than $5,000 during the Fall Promotion timeframe of Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, 2021.)

The following products are included:

  • Temprid FX insecticide
  • Suspend PolyZone insecticide

Liphatech announced an enhancement to its SoftSecure Technology (SST) and an addition to the NoTox product line with the renaming of its Rat and Mouse Attractant under the NoTox brand.

SST, suitable for securing Liphatech soft baits or mini blocks inside Liphatech’s Aegis-RP and Aegis-RP Anchor bait stations, now features an enhanced design that elevates bait at a more optimum feeding angle inside Aegis bait stations, Liphatech says. The SST keeps bait secure and in place with no need for horizontal or vertical rods. Bait can be placed directly on the SST, allowing rodents to feed between the metal bars.

In addition to the SST enhancement, Liphatech’s NoTox brand is now a family of products featuring NoTox Soft Bait Attractant — formerly known as Liphatech Rat & Mouse Attractant. Along with NoTox Monitoring Blocks, non-toxic NoTox Soft Bait Attractant is highly attractive to rodents, nuisance animals and pests even when competing food is available, the company says. NoTox Soft Bait Attractant can be used with or without the paper wrapper on snap traps and glueboards, and in bait stations and live-catch traps. Targeted pests include, but are not limited to: house mouse, Norway rat, roof rat, raccoon, chipmunk and squirrel.

NoTox Soft Bait Attractant is available in new packaging from distributors in cases containing eight 1-pound labeled bags of 10-gram pouches. They are labeled for sale by the case or 1-pound bag.

Liphatech’s NoTox Monitoring Blocks remain unchanged. They contain no active ingredient and can be used for monitoring activity of house mouse, Norway rat and roof rat species in and around buildings. The mini blocks are based on the same formula as Liphatech’s Maki bait, have a triangular shape that aids in bait identification and use a red dye that is visible in droppings.
