As a pest management industry innovator in solving burrowing rodent infestations, the BurrowRx team is always looking for better ways to do the job. The company’s leadership gathers input from customers to improve its offerings and always looks to bring accessories to market that solve on-the-job problems for PMPs and other users.
That’s why BurrowRx is releasing two new products:
1) The BurrowRx Mounting Kit and 2) Hose Cradle Handle. These accessories were invented to solve challenges and remedy common pain points PMPs encounter daily when using the BurrowRx system to effectively eradicate gophers, ground squirrels, moles, rats, prairie dogs and other burrowing rodents.
“We’re always looking for ways to improve the customer experience and these two products do just that,” said company president, Peter Kinnally.
Here’s a look at how these two new products improve the daily lives of PMPs:
The Hose Cradle Handle
Offers an optimal way to carry, manage and store an extra hose. In the past, BurrowRx’s 24-foot hose extensions allowed PMPs to extend their reach on jobs. However, customers found that when they had jobs along hillsides, or others areas that required carrying the hose and unit certain distances, they needed an accessory to keep the hose organized, secure and compact while moving it.
The accessory is sold with or without a 24-foot hose section. PMPs can simply attach their 24-foot hose to the existing 3-foot section found on the BurrowRx’s manifold. The new cradle handle installs easily and has a durable clip that allows users to conveniently transport the unit and hose around a variety of surface types. With the cradle handle, the hose won’t tangle or drag, eliminating tripping hazards and making the hose easy to manipulate and use. This adds to a technician’s professionalism, as he or she doesn’t need to awkwardly carry a long line of hose in a customer’s view.
The BurrowRx Mounting Kit
In tackling the gopher infestation, traps and poisons offered only marginal success, and Joe weighed other options. He had heard of a long-time approach of pumping exhaust fumes from an internal combustion engine into the tunnels, allowing the carbon monoxide to kill the rodents inside their tunnel systems. He knew it was impractical to try to hook a hose up to the exhaust on his car, so he researched other ways of doing it. All that problem solving and idea gathering also proved to be the start of a journey to develop one of the most innovative burrowing rodent control systems that thousands of pest management professionals (PMPs) are now using today – BurrowRx.
Designated as a pest control device by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), BurrowRx is a carbon monoxide device designed to control burrowing and tunneling animals, including gophers, ground squirrels, moles, rats, and prairie dogs. BurrowRx uses a smoke oil tracer to show where the carbon monoxide is going in the tunnels. As the carbon monoxide enters the burrow system, the rodent breathes it replacing oxygen in its blood and causing the organs to stop working. The product is unlikely to harm any non-target species because once it completely dissipates, the carbon monoxide is no longer a risk to anything entering the burrow system.
