PHILADELPHIA—FMC Professional Solutions is launching Dōs Flea and Crawling Insect Spray aerosol, with Dual-Spray Action (DSA) for efficient broadcast, surface, crack-and-crevice and spot control of fleas and other crawling insects. Dōs features a fully integrated actuating system that includes the straw, which provides pest management professionals (PMPs) with enhanced ease of use and accuracy. “It’s as easy as flipping the straw up for a targeted spot or crack and crevice application, and flipping the straw down for surface and broadcast treatments that require a wider spray pattern,” says FMC Insecticide Product Manager Steven Mora. “With Dōs’ crawling insect label and DSA technology, PMPs only need to carry one product – a big convenience and time saver.” Dōs breaks the life cycles of fleas and cockroaches, controlling fleas for seven months and cockroaches for four months. Dōs is also proven to effectively kill ants, cockroaches, spiders, ticks, carpet beetles, and other listed pests, the company says.
With Dōs’s packaging, no over cap is needed. There is a recessed spray button, a clip to hold the straw in place, and a locking mechanism to prevent accidental sprays.
“We chose this packaging with the PMP in mind – saving time, money and space,” Mora says.
With Dōs, PMPs do not need to carry extra straws and caps, or actually fit the straw in the actuator. This saves time and increases application accuracy, Mora says.
Available in April, Dōs is available in a 17-oz. can (12 to a case), which treats up to 1,700 sq. ft. It is labeled for indoor applications in residential, commercial, industrial and institutional environments.
