Ridge-Guard www.ridge-guard.com Ridge-Guard is designed to prevent squirrels, bats, mice, rats, stinging insects and more from entering roofs vented at the ridge. The company says most types of ridge vents are either installed incorrectly or warp and crack with age. Ridge-Guard is applied directly over affected roof ridges, rendering the vent impregnable by most types of wildlife, the company says. Ridge-Guard eliminates the need to tear off the entire ridge cap and replace when animal entry is detected or damage occurs.

Tick Box Technology Corporation www.tickboxtcs.com Tick Box Technology Corporation announced it has renamed its product the Tick Box Tick Control System (formerly known as Select TCS Tick Control System). The Tick Box Tick Control System has been registered with EPA and 26 states and the District of Columbia. The company said that due to the overwhelming nickname use and reference to the product as “The Tick Box” officials felt it was fitting to change the product’s name. The former name will continue to be registered so as to allow the consumption of any inventory that may remain in the channels of trade. The Tick Box Tick Control System controls ticks and reduces the risk of Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections. It treats the primary hosts of the disease — chipmunks and white-footed mice — with a small dose of fipronil. The ticks are killed during the critical larval and nymph stages when they contract the Lyme bacteria and other tick-borne diseases from small rodents. The Tick Boxes achieve 88 percent control in year one and 97.3 percent in year two, the company reports. The product is for professional use only and is available to PCOs directly from Tick Box Technology Corporation, Target Specialty Products and Univar.
