The new Victor Pro line of cage traps is the latest in animal control from Woodstream. Designed for wildlife professionals, Victor Pro cage traps offer heavy-duty features including 8-gauge wire body supports, uniform welds, high-tensile galvanized steel, 1- by ½-inch mesh and heavy-duty door hinge plates, the firm says. All traps feature a wire door and interior trigger rod. Woodstream says baiting is easy with an innovative, patent-pending bait compartment on the VP1103 raccoon size trap. This bait compartment will keep bait and lures protected from the elements and animals but also can be easily removed, allowing access to hang or place additional bait in the trap. There are three trap sizes available: 32- by 10- by 12-inch, 24- by 7- by 7-inch, and 18- by 5- by 5-inch. Traps are made in the USA.

HostGuard Flea Systemhttps://hostguardfleacontrol.com
The HostGuard Flea System is a new organic flea control solution developed by a pest management professional: Jeff Honeycutt, owner of Apex Pest Control, Asheville, N.C. The system consists of a set of Tyvek pants; one pair of socks, booties and gloves; and Guardalone, a natural flea attractant and adhesive. After suiting up, PMPs visit suspected “hot spots” where they become the target hosts for adult fleas. Once the adult fleas are captured in Guardalone they can be disposed of; PMPs then perform a treatment with an IGR to kill flea eggs and larvae. Honeycutt says the benefits of the HostGuard System are three-fold: (1) to provide protection to service professionals; (2) to monitor flea infestation levels; and (3) to manage flea populations by catching them in the Guardalone product.

Nixalite of America announced its new Biogents mosquito traps, which are the result of more than 16 years of academic research into the behavior of mosquitoes, the company says. As a result, Nixalite reports, a highly effective type of trap was developed that targets tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti). The other type of trap that is offered by Biogents targets tiger mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs. Biogents has developed traps that only target bloodsucking insects and show the highest catch rates of mosquitoes without using pesticides, the company says.
