Target Specialty Products, a Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based provider of pest control, vector and turf and ornamental solutions in the U.S. and Canada, has added the In2Care Mosquito Trap to its portfolio of products. In2Care can now be purchased online at Target-Specialty.com as well as at Target Specialty Products’ 46 locations across the U.S.
The In2Care Mosquito Trap is an easy-to-use, product approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that does not require a power source. The trap attracts and kills Aedes spp. mosquitoes with novel active ingredients that target both larvae and adults. The trap uses female mosquitoes to spread larvicides to local breeding sites around the station, helping to kill mosquito larvae in the surrounding area before they can become biting adult mosquitoes.
In2Care stations are designed for use in vector control programs, particularly in hotspot areas, and by professional pest management companies for mosquito control services at resorts, hotels and residential sites.
In2Care and Target Specialty Products are working closely to educate their customer base through a series of technical training webinars. In fact, “Alternative and Sustainable Methods to Grow your Mosquito Control Business Profitably,” Target’s latest installment in its long-running and free Business Growth Webinar Series, will take place April 27 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern.
Innovative and sustainable mosquito control methods, such as the In2Care Mosquito Station, decrease the overapplication of liquid products to further protect the health of the end-user and the environment, and the industry from future regulatory issues. This webinar will cover the basic biology, distribution, and disease-related facts of Aedes spp. and Culex spp. container-breeding mosquitoes in the U.S., the technology behind effective biocide transfer using differential static charges, the concept and principles of biocide auto-dissemination, the methods to incorporate auto-dissemination in mosquito control to keep mosquito populations sustainably low, and tactics to make a mosquito control business profitable with the In2Care Station. It will be presented by Ted Worster, In2Care’s sales and marketing manager. Worster holds a degree in agricultural biology and has more than 45 years of pest management industry experience.
“Target Specialty Products is excited to announce our partnership with In2Care! This webinar will showcase how PMPs and Vector Control Professionals can implement In2Care mosquito stations into residential, commercial, lawn care and public health segments of the industry,” David Helt, Target Specialty Products’ Leader, said in a news release.
