On Feb. 21, Abbotsford, B.C-based 1st Defence Industries announced a partnership with Target Specialty Products, a leading value-added service provider of pest, turf and ornamental solutions in the United States and Canada. The partnership gives Target the exclusive rights to sell 1st Defence’s industrial-grade pest monitors, lures and traps; provides the exclusivity for Target Specialty Products for a line of all-natural pest deterrents, including rodents and nuisance wildlife; and a line of all-natural pest deterrents, including Rat Dust.

“We are truly excited to work with Target Specialty Products to offer an extensive line of products to customers,” Randall Sanford, founder and president at 1st Defence Industries, said in a press release. “Target Specialty Products can now expand its offering of eco-friendly, pesticide-free, non-toxic, child and pet safe pest control solutions to their customers directly.”

David Helt, president of Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based Target Specialty Products, also noted in the release that he and his team were pleased to “now be able to offer pest-friendly bug coasters and sticky cones from 1st Defence Industries that are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, and residential and commercial end-users.”

1st Defence Industries’ product lineup includes:



The Original Bug Coaster line of coasters and bait trays — Built to commercial standards, these products can withstand up to 3,000 pounds of pressure, are cost-effective, durable and reusable for years of service. By placing Bug Coasters in strategic areas throughout the establishment, you or your clients can easily monitor for any potential infestations. Since crawling pests are trapped inside the coaster device, you will be able to properly assess the problem and increase the efficiency of the eradication process. The attractant trays are built to insert into the 4-inch round coasters, to allow you to use whatever bait or pheromone you prefer.



Sticky Cones Encircle the base of every plant at your client’s account with a reversible Sticky Cone to prevent crawling pest infestations. Place the adhesive side facing out to target thrips, or face the adhesive side in to target gnats. The non-toxic, pesticide-free product is designed to last up to 30 days, and protects against spider mites, russet mites, mealybugs, aphids, beetles, ants, caterpillars, and many other crawling pests.
