A smarter way to stop spiders in their tracks!
The end of Halloween doesn't mean spiders are gone from your home. If you want to avoid arachnids, pick up a three-pack of our new RESCUE!® Spider Trap

It catches various biting and poisonous spiders common in the home, including: black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, sac spiders, hobo spiders, jumping spiders and wolf spiders

The exclusive glue dot pattern allow more spiders to be caught because the creatures can move to the middle of the trap rather than block the entrances. The sturdy copper plastic shell makes the trap attractive, yet inconspicuous. And with a flick of the wrist, the trap flips over to catch more spiders.

Our mild-mannered scientists have done it again!

Gamers GO for our newest product, the GoClip!
When Pokemon GO fever seized the nation several weeks ago, it was GO time for our Marketing Department. We arranged a local tie-in with the game and our new product, the GoClip for Wasps, Hornets & Yellowjackets. (Get it?)

We teamed up with Mark Peterson of "Good Morning Northwest" on KXLY 4 News for a live "4 Free Friday" giveaway of GoClips in beautiful Riverfront Park in downtown Spokane.

As Mark did cut-ins for the weather during the two hours of "Good Morning Northwest" and "Good Morning America", 100 prize packs were offered to viewers that contained a GoClip™, OrnamenTrap® Yellowjacket Trap, trading cards and a kids' activity book -- all in a RESCUE!® backpack. 

We also purchased and set "lures" to attract more Pokemon characters to the area.

Watch our segments of the broadcast here:

Later on that evening, we set up a RESCUE! charging station in the park for Pokemon players -- to find relief from the game's notorious battery drain -- and offered more samples of the GoClip™.

GoClip goes to a 4th of July party
The 4th of July, an evening party on the deck... it was the perfect summer night -- except for the nightmarish numbers of mosquitoes in this New England town. 

But not to worry -- these friends were trying out our new GoClip for Mosquitoes. Here's what they had to say:

"Quick and easy! I don't smell like bug spray, which is a plus, and I didn't get bit at all." Nick D. (East Providence, RI)
"I've used so many different bugs sprays and hated all of them. They had weird smells and I always was getting bitten. When I used the mosquito repelling clip I didn't get bit at all! And the smell was great! I am recommending this to everyone !! " Julianna D. (Scituate, RI)
"The clip stayed on great all night and kept all the bugs away. It didn't have the normal bug repellant smell. It was so easy I forgot it was on and didn't worry about getting bit at all."   Dan O. (Pawtucket, RI) 

Thanks for the feedback, guys!

Saving summer camp!
Our company has long supported the Union Gospel Mission, which helps men and women in crisis by meeting the immediate needs of food and shelter, and providing a path to get back on their feet -- emotionally, spiritually and financially. 

So we jumped at the recent chance to help the kids at the UGM summer camp by donating enough Reusable Yellowjacket Traps, Disposable Yellowjacket Traps, and TrapStik for Wasps to cut down the insect population and protect the campers from insect bites and stings.

Our founder and President Rod Schneidmiller personally delivered the product to the UGM camp over the July 4th weekend.
