VAPORTAPE Insecticidal Strips utilize the active ingredient dichlorvos (DDVP) as a rapid knockdown toxicant to kill target insects lured into certain types of traps to prevent their escape and make insect identification and counting easier. In use, the controlled-release action of the product allows continuous release of fresh toxicant over extended periods of time, eliminating the need for frequent replacement. Two product types are available, VAPORTAPE BW Insecticidal Strips for use in boll weevil monitoring traps and VAPORTAPE GM Insecticidal Strips for use in gypsy moth monitoring traps and other types of traps.
INSECTAPE Insecticidal Strips/Patches utilize the active ingredient propoxur (BAYGON)as a toxicant/repellent to prevent insect infestations in telecommunications, utility, traffic control, and other types of sensitive equipment susceptible to insect caused malfunction. The product has two useful effects: 1) when applied inside enclosed spaces such as equipment boxes or cabinets, it has a repellent effect on most pest insect species that deters them from entering; 2) if insects enter anyway, they pick up enough toxicant to kill them when they to come in contact with the product as a result of their search behavior. In use, the controlled-release action of the product allows continuous release of fresh toxicant for a full year or more, depending on actual use conditions, providing cost-effective insect control to prevent insect caused malfunctions and equipment servicing problems
