Elevate AndyLiphatech’s recent Elevate Rodent Control Effectiveness live event/webinar was a hit with pest management professionals. John Murphy, Liphatech Northeast District Sales Manager, and Ted Bruesch, Liphatech Technical Support Manager, presented to a standing room only crowd at a Gillette Stadium suite in Foxboro, MA while being broadcast live to over an additional 200 people. Attendees learned that using the right bait is important, but a quality, comprehensive inspection is also necessary. Other topics in the webinar included real life experiences, helpful tools to be used in the inspection process, four types of rodent resistance and strategies for rodent control. PMPs were also told to watch for new Liphatech products coming this summer.

Highlights from the day and a recording of the webinar are available at here.

Jermaine “Wiggy” Wiggins, former tight end for the New England Patriots, added a lively start and finish to the presentation. Stories of his football days entertained the crowd, including his instrumental role in winning Super Bowl XXXVI. He announced the day’s prize winners:

  • A Patriots price pack valued at over $200 for the event attendees went to Don Rivard, Rivard’s Resources: IPM
  • A $100 gift card to a webinar attendee was won by Vance Walker, McCauley ServicesAttendees to the Gillette Stadium event were also treated to a stadium tour, hors d’oeuvres and a networking happy hour. Liphatech donated $25 to a charity chosen by each event and webinar attendee. A total of $7,500 was donated as follows:

As was stressed in the presentation, successful rodent control requires someone that isn’t afraid to get dirty to solve problems. PMPs often need to get down on their hands and knees in tight, dirty spaces. Liphatech wants to see your post-rodent control job photos that required you get dirty. Send your photo to pestmanagement@liphatech.com before 6/1/2016. The best photo (which should include a Liphatech product) received by that date will get a Stinger rechargeable flashlight valued at $100.

Charlie Passantino, Liphatech Pest Management Division Director, summed up the event, “Battling rodent problems was addressed in a fun, informative manner today. The message remains – the added steps and sometimes hard, dirty work necessary to attack a rodent problem in the most effective manner is worth your time. Thanks to everyone who attended!”

zika mosquitoesWith everyone so concerned with the news around the Zika Virus we wanted to share the following publication from the Florida Mosquito Control Association on the Zika Virus.  Please leave your comments or join the conversation on our Facebook page.

Zika is a virus transmitted by mosquitoes to humans. The virus has recently spread to the Americas. Symptoms of infection are usually mild, but severe complications including serious birth defects and various neurological and autoimmune complications can result from infection with the virus. Currently, there are no vaccines or medications available to prevent infection. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best defense against Zika virus infection.

What is Zika? Zika is a virus related to dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and West Nile viruses that was discovered in 1947 in Africa. It is named after the Zika Forest in Uganda (zika means “overgrown” in Lugandan), where the virus was first recovered from a sentinel rhesus monkey that was being used in a yellow fever research project; the agent was eventually described as Zika virus in 1952. It was first isolated from a human in Nigeria in 1954.
