Tip and spill pesticides

For such a precision tool oriented industry I’m surprised that we have such sloppy dispensers and application equipment. Not all of it mind you but there are a few things that simply drive me nuts. I tend to be bit on the ‘clean freak’ side of service and besides things like a rodent station or occasional sticky trap that can’t be totally concealed I want my service to be invisible, neat and put down as precisely as I can.

Alright I know just as well as anyone who’s been around for awhile that pest control can be and is a dirty job. We deal with unsanitary vermin and insects that get into the remotest of areas which can cause us to be less than exact. That I understand and I really have no problem with unavoidable messes in uncontrolled situations.. What really gets me going however is getting products or equipment straight from the factory floor that has a sloppy mess built right into it. Case in point are two items which I talk about in the video below. Neither one is cheap to purchase and both I’m sure cost big bucks to develop, test and market but there is just a small matter or two which the guys in white coats neglected to consider. Watch the video and see if you don’t agree, also I’d love to hear about any other product you might have similar frustrations about.
