New T1 Mouse Offers PMPs Lower-Risk, Fast-Service Mouse Control in Residential Accounts
Bell Laboratories' new T1 Mouse has what it takes to control mice in residential accounts - child and dog resistant, pre-baited and effective on house mice. Available to PMPs in fall, this mouse-sized, tamper-resistant bait station will be unveiled at PestWorld in New Orleans in October.
T1 Mouse is pre-baited, saving PMPs valuable service time. Technicians simply place the bait station where mice travel and let the 1 oz. extruded bait blox do its work. Because the station is disposable, it can be left at the account and thrown away when the bait is consumed, eliminating the need for return visits. And, T1 Mouse is child and dog resistant, a key factor in using it in residential accounts.
"T1 Mouse gives PMPs and residents a degree of comfort when baiting in homes, apartments and other residential accounts," noted Suzy Pursell, Bell's product manager. "We've built in a lot of features to make this mouse control tool residential-friendly."
The 1-oz extruded bait blox contains the acute active ingredient, bromethalin, which kills house mice in a day or two. With bromethalin, house mice stop feeding after consuming a toxic dose, and it poses low risk of secondary poisoning.
T1 Mouse, while ideal for use indoors, can also be used outdoors within 50 feet of buildings accessible to children and dogs.
Sold in 1- and 4-pack cartons, T1 Mouse is a "great way to boost walk-in sales in distributor showrooms," Pursell pointed out. "It's also a convenient product for use in residences by vector control programs.
