|  August 13, 2020


Target Specialty Products, a service provider of pest and turf and ornamental solutions in the United States and Canada, will hold a 1-hour webinar on Thursday, August 27, at 1:30-2:30 p.m. Eastern. As part of its Business Growth Webinar Series of 2020, the topic is “Making Ant Control Simple with Sumari Insecticide.

MGK Insect Control Solutions has partnered with Target for the webinar. The guest speakers will include MGK Technical Field Specialist’s J.B. Howell, Ryan Neff and Tommy Powell.



The webinar will cover MGK’s Sumari Insecticide, an ant control solution created specifically for pest management professionals (PMPs). During development, the MGK team identified several areas PMPs found challenging with ant control. MGK’s technical field specialists will walk through how MGK used this feedback and did extensive research to create Sumari.

PMPs can register for the webinar free of charge here. Attendees are invited to ask questions at the conclusion of the webinar. Please note that continuing education units (CEUs) are not available for this event.

Sumari incorporates NyGuard IGR (insect growth regulator) for maximum efficacy and boasts a versatile label that simplifies mixing and application.
