From the Desk of Tony Schultz

Many regions across the nation have experienced significant rainfall this spring and as we head into summer don’t let ants disrupt your indoor or outdoor activities.

Fortunately, Zoëcon can help stop springtime ant infestations before they start. Antack® Liquid Ant Bait delivers swift control of ants and is approved for indoor and outdoor treatment of residential, industrial and recreational sites.Contact your Zoëcon sales team member for a free sample.

Fleas could also be a concern as we head into the summer months. And for that, Zoëcon offers Precor® 2625 Premise Spray. This broad-spectrum aerosol insecticide utilizes multiple modes of action for quick, effective knockdown of fleas for up to 2,625 sq. ft.

And for those seeking more environmentally-friendly insect control this summer, there’s Essentria® Contact Spray. This indoor/outdoor botanical aerosol product kills and repels pests on a variety of surfaces and locations. Essentria® Contact Spray protects against insects with a softer insect control approach.

I’m also excited to announce some restructuring within our organization. I am proud to represent the company as senior director, ZoëconProfessional Products for both our structural pest control and mosquito brands. Mel Whitson has been promoted to director of sales, PCO. And Scott Harris has been appointed to national accounts manager alongside Drew Lockhart. Together Scott and Drew will elevate our national account focus.

Congratulations to Mel and Scott on these new roles and opportunities.

Take Down Tick-Borne Diseases

Ticks can pose a dangerous threat to people and pets. That’s why Zoëcon has developed two products that can reduce the risk of tick-borne diseases. Lambda 9.7 CS is an ideal tick yard spray that offers effective and long-lasting results. The formula stays in suspension with no clogging or clumping and features an encapsulated insecticide that won’t break down in heat and UV exposure. Mavrik® Perimeter is a barrier treatment that repels ticks from exterior spaces without fear of toxicity to ornamental plants, shrubbery or honeybees.
