NETWORKING. PestWorld will offer plenty of opportunities for PMPs to network. On Thursday evening, attendees will have a chance to form connections during the “In the Mix” reception, sponsored by Corteva Agriscience, EcoLab, FMC, ServicePro and Target Specialty Products. This reception invites PMPs to network and learn more about NPMA committees they can join, such as the Leadership Development Group, PestVets, the Professional Women in Pest Management and the Diversity Committee. Attendees will also be able to socialize Friday evening during the PestWorld Party, sponsored by BASF. This event will encourage PMPs to chat with their peers in a casual atmosphere as they eat, drink and reflect on their PestWorld experiences.
BUFFALO GROVE, ILL. – Xcluder, manufacturer of rodent and pest exclusion products, will be exhibiting its line of rodent-proofing products at next week's PestWorld event, including its new Xcluder Automatic Door Bottom. This rodent-proof, auto-retracting door bottom seal was developed in direct response to requests from pest control operators for a product that protects entryways in which an uneven floor or threshold would necessitate either a too-short seal that leaves cracks and therefore rodent vulnerability, or a flush seal that creates drag and makes the door difficult to open.
The Xcluder Automatic Door Bottom features an aluminum case surrounding a movable drop-bar seal. The drop-bar seal is actuated by a plunger that contacts the jamb as the door is closing, forcing the seal down against the threshold to create a secure seal. The rubber seal is filled with rodent-proof Xcluder fill fabric, the only exclusion product on the market tested and proven effective by the USDA/APHIS Lab, to provide dependable protection against both rodents and the elements. The drop-bar seal actuates on the hinge side first to prevent it from skidding along the floor while the door is being closed.
“We take pride in our extensive history of developing products that directly meet the needs of our PCO partners,” said Dave Colbert, Xcluder. “The Automatic Door Bottom is one more state of the art Xcluder product to provide an effective, long-term solution against rodents, and we’re excited to showcase our products and expertise at PestWorld this year.”
