Target Specialty Products webinar to focus on perimeter pest control


March 24, 2021



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, April 8, at 1:30-2:30 p.m. Eastern. As part of its Business Growth Webinar Series of 2021, the topic is “Formulation Contributions in Perimeter Pest Management: Helping PMPs Eliminate Pests, Not Their Budgets.

Bayer has partnered with Target for the webinar. Joe Barile, BCE, is the technical service lead for Bayer’s Environmental Science Division’s Pest Management & Public Health Business Group. He will be the guest speaker.

Barile will discuss formulation contributions in perimeter pest management, key steps in planning and executing this valuable service and how Bayer’s Suspend PolyZone can meet these challenges.

During the webinar, attendees will learn how Bayer’s Suspend PolyZone can efficiently target a wide spectrum of perimeter pests. Pest management professionals (PMPs) know that insecticide product choice is a key contributor to a successful perimeter pest management service. Not only does your product choice have to be effective against a wide spectrum of target pests, it must perform, and provide residual control, on a variety of tough surfaces and withstand the effects of nature (wind, precipitation and ultraviolet exposure).

PMPs can register for the webinar free of charge here. Attendees are invited to ask questions at the conclusion of the webinar.
