  • Patent number: 6172051
    Abstract: An improved termiticidal combination is formed by adding a liquid cellulose source to a standard liquid termiticide. The cellulose source may be a water soluble polyester such as a cellulose ether like methyl cellulose. The cellulose in the combination functions as termite bait, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the poison, even at lower concentrations, by inducing termites to ingest poisoned cellulose and return with it to share it with the colony. The liquid form allows the combination to be applied with a standard power sprayer, and permits laying of a continuous barrier or curtain as well as injection spraying into walls of structures.

  • Patent number: 6162825
    Abstract: This invention relates to the discovery that in many strains of the German cockroach [Blattella, germanica (L.)], feeding is inhibited by high glucose levels, while conversely, feeding of this strain of cockroach is stimulated by high or ultra high levels of fructose. Therefore, preferred bait compositions of the instant invention relate to insecticide bait compositions for insect control which contain a ratio of fructose to glucose of no less than about 9:1 and as great as about 10:0, binder and an avermectin insecticide.
