5 Questions with Tom Forshaw IV – PCT

AP & G.

AP & G Co. announced the introduction of its new Ovi Planter mosquito trap. The technology and design of Ovi-Planter was inspired by the Catchmaster Ovi-Catch mosquito trap developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Ovi-Catch received the Federal Lab Consortium 2021 Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer.

The attractive design of the Ovi-Planter contributes to the fact that it fits discreetly into almost any living or business environment, according to the company. The trap targets female mosquitoes and uses their breeding habits against them. Studies show that each captured woman eliminates up to 1,000 future mosquitoes, making it an ideal choice for monitoring and reducing mosquito populations, the manufacturer said. The product fits in well with a monthly service plan and works well with PMPs’ offerings, adds AP&G.

“One of our core values at Catchmaster is Customer Centric,” said Dr. Stan Cope, Vice President, Technical Products and Services. “In this case, we listened to our customers who loved the Ovi-Catch but wanted something that was a little more pleasing to the eye. Voila! The Ovi Planter! ”

The Catchmaster Ovi-Catch Mosquito Trap is available from most retailers in the industry.


SenSci launched its new and redesigned products for 2021, including the SenSci Pyramid Pitfall Trap, SenSci ActivCR, and the redesigned SenSci Volcano.

“We are very excited to bring another product to market and to expand beyond bed bug products with our new SenSci Pyramid Pitfall Trap,” said President Robert DiJoseph. “In addition to the pyramid, the new SenSci ActivCR offers a controlled version that fits seamlessly into the newly designed SenSci Volcano floor.”

The SenSci Pyramid Pitfall Trap is a unique combination of a sticky trap and a pitfall in one user-friendly device, reports SenSci. With a cardboard box on the outside, smooth laminate inside and a sticky “pit”, the device allows bed bugs and cockroaches to climb onto the device and fall onto the adhesive.

In addition to the SenSci pyramid, the SenSci Activ bed bug bait has been given a new look and name for 2021. With a new bullet design developed by Insects Limited, the new SenSci ActivCR bait incorporates a new controlled release system that is easier to use and operate and blends seamlessly with the new SenSci Volcano floors.

“By partnering with Insects Limited, we were able to build our bait into the bullet delivery system,” said White. “This enabled the ActivCR, whose name“ CR ”means“ controlled release, ”a better delivery system that dramatically reduces human errors in using the product. No more tearing or tearing open the package. “

White said the partnership was a success and the two companies were happy with the product they jointly developed.

“Insects Limited has been a great partner throughout the process,” he said. “We’ve been able to significantly improve the usability of the Activ bait while maintaining its effectiveness.”

According to White, the ActivCR vial clips easily into the cavity of the new SenSci Volcano base and can be removed by inserting a pointed instrument into the side opening and pushing it upwards.


Woodstream recently introduced the DynaTrap line of mosquito and flying insect traps. According to Woodstream, DynaTrap operates economically around the clock and is quick and easy to set up and maintain.

Traps are available in sizes to protect up to a quarter acre with the DT160, half an acre with the DT1100, and 1 acre with the DT2000XLP. DynaTrap attracts insects with a powerful UV-emitting fluorescent lamp as well as CO2 (carbon dioxide), which is automatically generated via an exclusive photocatalytic reaction. Once lured into the trap, a whisper-quiet fan draws insects into the holding cage, where they dry out and die. DynaTrap is built with a durable, all-weather construction, making it an ideal addition to a pest control company’s service, adds Woodstream.

Rascal Eradicator

The patented EPA registered Rascal Eradicator double-hose carbon monoxide dispenser kills prairie dogs, gophers, moles and other burrowing pests. The company says pest control professionals appreciate the ease of use, the ease of moving the large red cart size cart around fields and around the neighborhood (an ATV tow bar is available), the efficiency of the double hose, the simplicity, and the high first-time completion rate.

This device can be used on pastures, alfafa and hay fields, golf courses, private homes, country estates, nursing homes, greenways for schools as well as in government districts of cities and counties.

The manufacturer says the device is made of high quality steel and heavy duty tubing. The large rollers of the unit allow one-handed transport.


Coxreels offers a complete line of DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) hose reels built on the all-steel structures of the SH and T series. These reels are designed with a stainless steel external full flow vortex and chemical resistant Viton seals to provide a reliable DEF dispensing solution available with a factory installed high quality Goodyear DEF hose. The vortex is easily accessible for easy seal maintenance and quick installation of the DEF dispenser tube, the company said.

Coxreels offers professional reel systems in high performance single pedestal configurations (SH Series) or high performance double pedestal configurations (T Series) that handle DEF tubing with tubing up to 75 feet ¾ inches. Both designs are equipped with two-axis Super Hub support systems to increase stability and reduce vibration during operation. This makes these roles ideal for DEF handling solutions for stationary or robust mobile applications.

The DEF models are available in standard spring-return and EZ-Coil-controlled retraction systems, which promote greater operator and workplace safety by retracting up to 80 percent slower than conventional rollers. This DEF reel line has all of the durable, high quality components and superior finishes found in every Coxreels product, according to the company.

According to Coxreels, the company takes great pride in designing, building, and supporting every single product that is entirely made in the United States.
