When it comes to controlling outdoor pests like ants, including fire ants, chinch bugs, fleas, ticks, scorpions, earwigs and mole crickets, you need a reliable insecticide that delivers fast and effective results. At FMC Professional Solutions, we developed a granular insecticide featuring many XTRAS that will optimize your outdoor pest control. With Talstar® XTRA featuring Verge™ granule technology, all the XTRAs, including speed, versatility and consistency, come standard without the added cost. The highly advanced clay-based formulation of the Verge granule was created by Oil-Dri®, the leading experts in micro particles and mineral processing. Each granule is engineered to be uniform in size and shape for improved ballistics and consistent, dependable control. More consistent insecticide coverage Granules disintegrate rapidly upon watering in, delivering the AI to the desired area Non-staining granules blend into the landscape with no unsightly mess Virtually odorless formulation with significantly less dust which means you won’t wear the product home The images below show granules poured into spreading equipment from a height of four feet. As you can see, the Verge granule produces up to 137 times less dust than competitive granules. This reduces the potential for applicator exposure and off-target drift.

Back Plates for Verifi® Bed Bug Detectors Are Here

Back Plates for Verifi® Bed Bug Detectors Are Here

You told us you needed a new option for installing Verifi® bed bug detectors, and we listened. Now, you can install the bed bug detectors securely while still servicing them easily. The Verifi back plate is an alternative option to the self-adhesive sticker and can be installed easily on walls using a drill and four provided screws. Once the plate is installed, the activated Verifi bed bug detector slides in place for monitoring, inspection or reactivation. The back plate employs the same texture as the Verifi devices, so bed bugs can easily climb to the pitfall. “We’re planning to use the back plates in the group homes where we continually monitor with Verifi,” said Mike Deutsch, BCE of Arrow Exterminating in Long Island, NY. “That way we won’t have to worry about the residents moving the devices, and we’ll always know where to find them.” The Verifi bed bug detector back plate is available in packages of 12 through pest management distribution channels.
