The next BIG thing in Professional Pest Management is finally here. Since the 1990’s, when dry flowable baits were first introduced, PMPs have utilized these tools to manage infestations of urban pests such as cockroaches and ants. Dry flowable baits were especially useful to combat gel bait averse populations of German cockroaches in food handling areas. The dry powder material could flow deep into cracks and crevices, penetrating harborage areas where pests live and breed. Additionally, the dry material would last longer than gel formulations for long residual control. By affecting pests in 2 ways, both as a bait and as a dust material, pests were exposed in very different ways to the product.Unfortunately, over time, use of these baits declined, not because they were ineffective, but because they were labor intensive to apply, messy, were inconsistent in application, costly, and difficult to determine how much bait was applied. The tube of bait was intended to provide approximately 200 bait applications, but over application, spillage and poor application options limited the consistency of application.
Several years ago, Control Solutions, Inc. set out on a path of intensive development to create an innovative solution for the pest management industry. The decision to invest the time was directly due to a need identified in the pest management industry, by pest management professionals. The Precision Delivery System featuring Doxem Precise is the solution to these challenges. The system delivers unparalleled efficacy, ease, application consistency, and value per bait placement.
The Precision Delivery System (PDS) is an all new piece of equipment exclusively available to PMPs. Specially designed to apply Doxem Precise bait, it can make applications of dry flowable products consistently, accurately, and precisely. Capable of reaching up to 24” inches into voids, the PDS makes it possible for deep pockets of pests to be easily eliminated.
By utilizing the Precision Delivery System applicator, Doxem Precise is accurately placed deep into voids, cracks, and crevices with little to no guessing how much bait was applied. To determine how much bait is applied, a PMP must simply count the number of seconds the trigger is actuated.
Doxem Precise, the first dry flowable bait to feature the active ingredient Indoxacarb and is specifically formulated for use with the PDS. It is a proprietary, non-clumping formulation that flows smoothly through the PDS and is highly attractive to cockroaches and other pests.
Very little bait is needed, placements as small as 0.05 g are effective at controlling cockroaches. Additionally, a single application of Doxem Precise can be effective for more than 1 year.
The Precision Delivery System featuring Doxem® Precise is a revolutionary combination of bait and application device that will make pest control technicians more effective, efficient and professional. The supporting efficacy data and customer field trials have confirmed this will be a “game-changer” in the professional pest management industry.
