29 Oct 2018 Sundew Helping to Improve the Quality of Life
“It’s great to be in a business where we provide innovative solutions for problems,’ said David Priddy CEO at Sundew Solutions, “but where I really get a kick out of what we do is when we receive feedback where we’ve made significant life changing differences to customers’ quality of life.”
Recently we were told the story of a Housing Trust dwelling where the home owner had a serious hoarding disorder. The home was strewn with hundreds of empty cat food tins and various household possessions leaving only narrow gaps for walkways throughout.
The hundreds of opened tins of cat food provided the ideal food and harbourage source for tens of thousands of German cockroaches, while the hoarded household goods extended the domain in which this pest was able to hide. It was estimated that there were well over 20,000 roaches in this small dwelling.
Sundew was contacted by the pest management professional whose mammoth task it was to bring the situation under control.
The recommendation from Sundew was the new EnsnarePRO 50 Suspension Concentrate Liquid with 50 g/L indoxacarb. This is the first non-staining, non-repellent liquid formulation of indoxacarb available to pest management professionals in Australia, a real innovation and game changer for the industry.
The interesting challenge of this particular situation is that the pest controller was told he could not remove the clutter of cat food tins or domestic clutter for the treatment process. The pest manager instructed the client that there was an expectation that 4 to 5 follow-up treatments may be required.
A single treatment of EnsnarePRO was applied throughout and onto harbourages, with the first follow-up scheduled for a fortnight after.
At the first visit the pest technician contacted Sundew and informed them that not a single living cockroach could be found anywhere.
At the end of 4 weeks from time of treatment the owners had the house cleaned of cat food cans and all household clutter. The technician came in at this time and was also unable to find a single living cockroach.
“In my 35 years of doing pest control I’ve never seen a product perform like EnsnarePRO,” exclaimed an excited technician, “the non-repellent and transfer effects to control massive infestations are evident in this one treatment.”
“This has changed the quality of life for my client who has lived in this terrible situation for many years. I really feel like I’ve made a difference to someone’s life using this simple product.”
EnsnarePRO can be used in conjunction with baits without reducing their performance. Ants, cockroaches and flies don’t know it’s there. The ‘non-repellent’ properties of this formulation do not interfere with insect’s natural behaviour and allows for greater exposure (and thus uptake) to eradicate hard to control populations.
EnsnarePRO is available in an easy-measure 1 liter chamber pack from Agserv, Garrards, David Grays and Globe.
