Pasadena, Texas-based Control Solutions Inc. (CSI) plans to launch new products at the National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA’s) virtual PestWorld 2020, taking place October 13-15.
CSI says it will introduce Tekko Trio, a triple-action insect growth regulator (IGR). The new Tekko Trio Concentrate is powered by hydroprene, pyriproxyfen and novaluron. It is designed to disrupt the life cycle of ants, cockroaches, ticks and other labeled pests, stopping normal development and inhibiting egg production so the population cannot grow. Tekko Trio provides the power of Tekko Pro, plus the advantage of hydroprene, which translocates from the application site and into voids, cracks and crevices.
In addition, CSI says it will reveal a dry flowable termiticide that can be used with the company’s Precision Delivery System, which it launched at last year’s PestWorld convention in San Diego. The innovative, handheld microduster was designed to deliver precise, uniform amounts of dry flowable bait into cracks, crevices and voids. It does not require the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
During PestWorld 2020, attendees can visit CSI’s virtual booth #361. Although attendees may visit the virtual booth anytime during the event, prime time exhibit hall hours are:
Tuesday, Oct. 13

PestWorld 2020 attendees who stop by the CSI booth free Pressurized Solutions Sample Kits, while supplies last. Each kit will include three full-sized bottles and holster, and the assortment of products will be based on which state they will be shipped to.
CSI also announces enrollment for CSI Academy is open. The online professional product training series allows pest management professionals and distributors to boost their knowledge of CSI’s products. Participants can connect from any location, with any device, to earn $50. New training will begin January 2021.
CSI’s Dr. Janis Reed, BCE, will host on Nov. 19, a webinar through Pest Management Professional that will use examples from history — and from CSI’s own innovations — to advise pest management professionals on how they can stand out from their competition. Attendees will learn how to find a need, fill a need; stand out from your competition, regardless of size; get their entire team involved to brainstorm ideas; and use several examples for inspiration.

The company can actually trace its roots to 1958, when President and CEO Mark Boyd’s father, Richard, purchased a small pest control company in Pasadena, Texas, and founded Ford’s Pest Control. By 1960, Richard Boyd launched Ford’s Chemical to formulate and sell pest control solutions to colleagues and the public. In 1976, he merged the two businesses into Ford’s Chemical and Service.
