Product Spotlight
Victor Kill Vault Mouse Trap
The Victor Kill Vault Mouse Trap offers an inexpensive “No Touch, No See” experience. The sealed design makes it ideal for use in sensitive accounts such as schools, offices, healthcare facilities, daycare centers and similar locations. It’s designed to lure mice all the way inside, which eliminates the chances of a pet, child or customer from seeing or coming in contact with the rodent’s body. Just place bait in the trough, close the bait door, and then hold down the setting button while pulling up on the Kill-Gate to set the trap. This raises the trap’s door, which will not close until the Kill-Gate is triggered and a mouse has been caught. The entire trap may then be reused or disposed. The trap is available in 2-pack item M267.

Warning Signs of a Stroke

Pest professionals work in and around the public and spend a lot of their day on the road. It is becoming more and more common to hear of PMPs saving the day during work hours. Some recent examples include a PMP saving a choking victim and a PMP rescuing a vehicular accident victim. 

Stroke is currently the third leading cause of death in the United States. Understanding the warning signs can help you to save a life by recognizing the symptoms and making that quick call to 9-1-1 should someone around you show signs of a stroke.
