Pest Control Insulation

Pest Control Insulation, makers of EPA-registered TAP Pest Control Insulation, has been designated by Krendl Machine Co. as the preferred distributor of the new GV230XL Batt Removal Vacuum for the pest control and wildlife industries. The Krendl GV230XL is the industry’s first high-speed batted insulation removal vacuum and offers significant labor savings for all crews tackling tough attic or crawlspace insulation cleanouts, the company says. The belt-driven vacuum is powered by a Briggs & Stratton V-Twin engine.

The GV230XL is designed for loose-fill fiberglass, cellulose, mineral wool or batted fiberglass insulations, making cleanouts up to 50 percent faster than manual removals, the company says. The vacuum draws in insulation material and delivers it directly into a heavy-duty vacuum bag.


Syngenta has launched its 2021 PestPartners 365 Program. The program started on Oct. 1 and Syngenta says PMPs can start earning yearlong rebates, no matter the size of their company.

To become a member, PMPs need to purchase any combination of Syngenta pest management products to generate at least $200 in base rebates during the qualification period (Oct. 1, 2020, to April 30, 2021). Once qualified, PMPs will receive rebates on all Syngenta products purchased from Oct. 1, 2020, to Sept. 30, 2021 — no forms required.

New this year is the ability for PMPs to view their rebates online. Once qualified, companies can check their current rebate level, estimated rebates and more by logging into their account.

“As the first rewards program of its kind in the industry, we’re continually innovating PestPartners 365 with new offerings that make it easier to save,” said Marshall Gaster, market manager for Professional Pest Management at Syngenta. “We’re excited that our new rebate tool will help PMPs easily view and plan their rebates for the year ahead.”

Other program benefits include the ability to:

  • Help manage cash flow by deferring payment on select products until June 25, 2021, with SummerPay terms.
  • Estimate rebate savings with the online rebate calculator.
  • Download sample purchase orders that outline simple ways to become a member at the introductory Partner level.

Additionally, when PMPs generate at least $500 in base rebates between Oct. 1, 2020, to Dec. 9, 2020, they’ll earn a special one-time Early Order Bonus rebate.

Mattress Safe

Mattress Safe recently announced its Viral Penetration and Bacterial Resistance Certifications.

The company said that with the changing environment of the pest management industry, it has evolved to guarantee the bedding needs of its users are met in full.

With the rise of COVID-19, Mattress Safe sought new certifications for its products and was awarded the Viral Penetration (ASTM F1671) and Bacterial Resistance (ASTM G22) certifications. With these new certifications, they meet the same specifications required by the Centers for Disease Control for Level 4 surgical gowns and drapes.

Mattress Safe said it is known among the pest control and hospitality industries for offering distinguished quality at competitive prices. Their patented “Zipper with a Hook” technology rewarded them as the first product to achieve Bed Bug Certification. Mattress Safe uses laminated stretch knit fabric, which is stretchable, breathable, non-allergenic, waterproof, lightweight and fits securely under sheets.

Control Solutions

Control Solutions recently introduced Taurus Dry, for use exclusively with the Precision Delivery System (PDS). The product provides PMPs an effective option for managing all species of termites, the firm says. Applied with the PDS and powered by fipronil, this solution makes the application of termiticide into hard-to-reach areas, or against tough-to-manage termite species, easier than before, CSI says.

Taurus Dry is capable of topical or physical transfer among nestmates, meaning untreated termites can be affected by interacting with treated ones, quickly spreading throughout the colony, killing more than just the termites treated at the time of application, CSI reports.

Oldham Chemicals

The Jacto PJB-16 and PJB-20 are the world’s most advanced battery-powered backpack sprayers, Oldham Chemicals says.

The 4-gallon PJB-16 and the 5-gallon PJB-20 are the right sprayers for the end user who needs accuracy and efficiency for the on-target delivery of their spray solution. With such features as hydraulic agitation, multiple pressure settings, a walking pace (speed) indicator and built-in self diagnostics, the PJB-16 or PJB-20 is the right sprayer for PMPs, the company says.

WorkWave, a provider of cloud-based software solutions, recently announced the launch of WorkWave Forms, a custom digital form management solution that allows customers to create custom forms tied directly into WorkWave platforms, creating a paperless environment. WorkWave Forms allows users to craft a unique experience for their end customers, while increasing operational efficiency for both office and field workers, WorkWave says. Field technicians have the ability to add and complete business-essential forms, proposals, checklists and other company-required documents directly from their mobile device or tablet while in the field, and have that information saved directly into the underlying platform database where it can be used to complete sales, service, invoicing and other activities.

With Workwave Forms, having access anytime from anywhere will save time and resources by eliminating unnecessary paperwork, searching for information and expense, the company says. While state forms may be mandatory and consistent from company to company, the ability to use and complete uniquely branded, customized forms can improve a company’s professional appearance.

WorkWave says its Forms benefits both office staff, as well as technicians, with a range of uses including, but not limited to:

  • Access to a library of common forms, including state-required forms.
  • Ability to easily set up templates and map fields for auto-fill, pre-population, calculations, images and signatures.
  • Assign fields to specific user roles and define mandatory fields.
  • Access, manage, and complete forms through web or mobile app.
  • Accept in-person or remote digital e-signatures from customers.
  • Both online and offline access.



Coxreels’ dual hydraulic reels, designed for use with hydraulic tools and accessories, are offered in two configurations: the MPD and the TDMP series. As with most Coxreels spring rewind reels, the dual hydraulic reels feature single sided access for both the spring and the swivel. The supply and return lines come in the same side of the reel into an external fluid path via a removable, dual port hydraulic swivel. This same inlet and swivel side of the reel also houses an easy-to-service spring cartridge motor.

This design allows for service of the main components without removal of the reel when the reel is installed into truck body boxes. Because the reel can be installed with the back side of the drum right up against a wall without concern for incoming hose lines, space utilization is improved. All Coxreels spring retractable reels are manufactured in the USA.
