ORLANDO, Fla. – NPD Products, a well-known supplier of pesticide application equipment to the structural pest control industry, recently awarded 15 Boss Pro 128 sprayers valued at more than $4,300 to PMPs who participated in its “NPMA Stampede” giveaway at NPMA PestWorld in Orlando, Fla.
NPMA Membership Manager Chanel Braxton picked the lucky winners at the NPD booth on the second day of the convention, which attracted more than 3,600 attendees to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in October.
PMPs winning a Boss Pro 128 system, the latest addition to NPD’s product line, included: Paul Alley, Pestmaster Services of the Hudson Valley, Kingston, N.Y.; Stu Benedict, Truly Nolen Pest Control, Ontario, Canada; Paul DiLorenzo, Samco Pest Solutions, Coral Springs, Fla.; Bill Forte, Sebastian River Exterminating, Sebastian, Fla.; John Gedeon Jr., General Pest Control, Cleveland, Ohio; Suzanna T. Graham, Massey Services, Orlando, Fla.; John J. Kane, Orkin, Chicago, Ill.; James Langdon, Accurate Termite & Pest Solutions, Irvine, Calif.; Raymond Meyers, Fire Ant Patrol, Lake Mary, Fla.; Jonathan Monnett, Southeast Florida Pest Control, Boca Raton, Fla.; David Moore, Terminix, Greensboro, N.C.; Greg Ricker, Terminix, New Brunswick, Canada; Doug Rolling, Abell Pest Control, Ontario, Canada; Richard Whitman, Whitman Exterminating, Beckley, W. Va.; and Bill Wilson, JC Ehrlich, Orlando, Fla.
The Boss Pro 128 system featuring “Soft Flow Technology” for interior applications (14 ounces/minute), is designed by and for industry professionals, according to Michael Howe, president, NPD Products. “We conducted two years of field testing with PMPs before bringing the product to market,” he said, “listening to them and incorporating many of their recommendations into our final design.”
The key features and benefits of the 1-gallon, slim-line applicator include an 18-volt rechargeable lithium battery that lasts two days before needing to be recharged; a telescoping extension wand that extends 10 to 18 inches for easy access to hard-to-reach areas; a translucent tank for visually recording chemical usage at every job site; a trigger gun with locking handle and a dripless brass quick disconnector; padded shoulder straps; a big-mouth opening and easy-carry handle; and four output tips for exterior and interior applications.
“The Boss Pro 128 is well suited for both interior and exterior applications,” Howe says. “The system features low-flow output settings for interior treatments and high-flow output settings for exterior treatments, providing PMPs with excellent flexibility when servicing both residential and commercial accounts.”
It can be used as a traditional spray applicator, foamer and power sprayer. “The Boss Pro 128 can apply product as a liquid, mist and foam,” Howe said. “You can use our state-of-the-art electrical spray applicator on virtually any job.”
Howe added, “To the attendees of NPMA PestWorld 2018, we would like to extend a big thank you to all those who stopped by the NPD booth, making the show a great success. Also, to our 15 lucky winners, congratulations and enjoy!”
