Liphatech, the Milwaukee, Wis.-based manufacturer of FirstStrike, Resolv, and TakeDown soft bait rodenticides, announced the winners of its 2019 Soft Bait Slam Dunk Challenge. This program was launched in March, and awarded points to pest management professionals (PMPs) for purchases of Liphatech soft baits.
Based on soft bait purchases, hundreds of prizes were awarded to PMPs during the challenge. Top prize winners included Ken Gladen, warehouse and fleet manager of Plunkett’s Pest Control, Fridley, Minn., who redeemed points for a Spartan GoCam trail camera; and Rob Guyette, ACE, general manager of Braman Termite and Pest Elimination, Agawam, Mass., who earned a $500 Southwest Airlines gift card with his points.
The 2019 Soft Bait Slam Dunk Challenge focused on these three Liphatech baits:
- FirstStrike Soft Bait is formulated with difethialone, a second-generation anticoagulant rodenticide. A lethal dose may be consumed in one night’s feeding, with first dead rodents appearing four to five days later.
- Resolv Soft Bait rodenticide is ideal for budget-minded PMPs faced with moderate rodent infestations. It contains the active ingredient bromadiolone, in a soft bait formulation. A lethal dose may be consumed in one night’s feeding, with first dead rodents appearing four to five days later.
- TakeDown Soft Bait is the first and only bromethalin soft bait for the professional pest control market. It combines the power of an acute rodenticide with the palatability of soft bait. It is effective in fighting anticoagulant-resistant rodent populations and heavy infestations, especially those in a commercial setting. A lethal dose may be consumed in one night’s feeding but it may take two or more days for the first dead rodents to appear.
