Target webinar on specialty products with a focus on pest control in perimeters


Target Specialty Products, a pest, lawn and ornamental solutions provider in the United States and Canada, will host a one-hour webinar on Thursday, April 8th at 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm Eastern. As part of the Business Growth Webinar series from 2021, the topic is “Formulation contributions in perimeter malware management: Supporting PMPs in removing malware and not from their budgets”.

Bayer partnered with Target for the webinar. Joe Barile, BCE, is the technical services director for the Pest Management & Public Health Business Group of Bayer Environmental Science Division. He will be the guest speaker.

Barile will discuss the pest control formulation contributions, the key steps in planning and executing this valuable service, and the ways Bayer’s Suspend PolyZone can address these challenges.

During the webinar, participants will learn how Bayer’s Suspend PolyZone can efficiently fight a wide range of perimeter pests. Pest Control Professionals (PMPs) know that insecticide product selection is an essential factor in running a successful perimeter pest control service. In addition to being effective against a wide range of target pests, your product selection must provide excellent control on a wide variety of hard surfaces and withstand the effects of nature (wind, precipitation and UV radiation).

PMPs can register for the webinar here free of charge. Participants are invited to ask questions at the end of the webinar.
