To add to your tasks at hand, searching for the best solutions for your customers from umpteen and varied resources can be timeconsuming, confusing, and counter-productive.

    Reach Your Customers with Social Media

    Winston Churchill said, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”During these fast moving times, change is paramount. The way that we advertise and communicate with customers is totally changing. Traditional marketing is being challenged and could one day be obsolete. Customers want to be engaged more. Hence, social media is taking off. In fact, social media site traffic has doubled in the past year. Per the Jupiter Report – social network users are three times more likely to trust peer opinions over advertising in purchase decisions. So, in this new age of technomarketin...

Just select the Insect Traps and Bait Stations category and then Bed Bug Traps & Monitors for detailed information and images. Remember too that Univar carries a wide selection of mattress and ...

    Solutions for Fly Control

    It’s hot, muggy and absolutely wonderful….if you are a fly. There are several species of flies that love this weather, including house flies and larger flies, such as blow and deer flies. You have several options when dealing with house flies, depending on the level of control needed and location. However, no matter what program you set up, sanitation is a key factor to successful control. House flies are attracted to and breed in exposed food, garbage and other decaying materials.

    100% Effective on Bed Bugs?

    Recent research on bed bugs done at the University of Kentucky came up with some interesting new information on this resurgent pest that, by now, all PMPs must be experiencing. One ominous comment in particular caught my eye, and this was “no insecticide or no non-chemical practice ALONE is 100 percent effective in eliminating bed bugs.” Those with a great deal of experience with bed bug infestations already know this to be true. The common bed bug must be attacked with a varied arsenal of weapons if we are going to be successful. Univar understands this very well too, and we are taking the...

    June is National Safety Month, so, we should take the time to review the importance of the personal protective products that we all use every day to make our jobs easier, cleaner and safer.

    Respirators are important tools of our trade, so it is important to understand their proper use. OSHA regulates respirator use in the workplace, and requires the use of NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health) tested and approved respirators. Respirators come in two basic types: air purifying, which use a filtering element— usually a cartridge and filter combination— and air supplying, which pump in clean breathable air from a source a safe distance from the user. Air purifying respirators are the most commonly used in our business. These respirators utilize prefilter...
