Zoo pest management and controls

Control of pests is a critical aspect of preventive medicine at zoological parks. Key pest management issues at zoos are mice and rat control and insect (primarily cockroach) control. If you have ants and/or roaches and want to control them, we have the answer.  Watch the video below on our ant/roach feeders that deliver 24 hour control.  These feeders work by making available large amounts of our special ant killer to foraging ants and roaches in an endless pool.  One filling usually lasts 2 to 3 months. This is much safer and easier than broadcasting granular bait.  In the video we cut a slot in the feeder so you can see the bait pool in action.

Effective against Fire Ants, Crazy Ants, Argentine Ants, White Footed Ants, Carpenter Ants and many more, plus effective against American, Asian, Australian, German and Palmetto and Smokybrown cockroaches/roaches. Don't waste your money and your time on homeowner quality ant and roach bait stations.  They become more expensive in the long run.  Our slow kill formula eliminates the nest. Ants and roaches are noticeable reduced in 3 to 4 days and usually under control by 8 days.

These are used in zoo settings as the bait in both primary and relay toxicity cases is less toxic than common table salt. We have designed special attachments to avoid overturns caused by raccoons and other pests and are easily placed out of reach of animals.  Zoo label requirements and MSDS sheets are available also. Less wash downs are needed, saving time and resources.
