  • Patent number: 11793203
    Abstract: Compositions and methods of use thereof for delivering an insecticide to water-borne insect larvae are provided. Whereas individual cells of the insecticidal bacteria such as Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti), are effective in killing insect larvae when ingested by same, their use in aqueous environments is restricted by the time that the bacterial cells remain suspended in water and hence available for ingestion by the larvae. To increase the time that the insecticidal bacteria remain in suspension, it has now been found advantageous to mix bacterial suspensions with nanoparticles comprising carbon that attach to the external surface of the cells.

  • Patent number: 11246491
    Abstract: A portable breast light assembly, having a housing with a sidewall. An electrical assembly has a control panel having a power switch, a timer controller, an intensity controller, a screen, and at least one light source to emit visible light at a predetermined wavelength. The present invention further has a cap assembly. The timer controller controls at least one range of operating time. The intensity controller controls at least one level of light intensity. The electrical assembly has a sensor. The sensor is connected to circuitry that is connected to the at least one light source. The cap assembly has a cover. The cover contacts the sensor. The light emitted by the at least one light source illuminates a breast when the cover is biased against the breast with a predetermined force.

  • Patent number: 11243621
    Abstract: Embodiments exemplify an ambidextrous multifunctional personal protection finger-mounted keyring ergonomic microbial surface contact mitigation stylus tool, grasped by a user to mitigate hand contact with surfaces, and electrically interact with a capacitive device touchscreen. The stylus tool can also effect force transmission and motion to a movable surface, and can include a rigid elongated stem having a proximal end with at least a transverse aperture that supports a removably and pivotably docked ring can be used as a rotationally locking keyring and the fulcrum of a third-class lever. The stylus tool can further include a compliantly coupled and ejectable cap on the stem distal end, and a mechanism that includes an ergonomic actuator to removably separate, without the user hand touching the cap, eject the disposable and replaceable cap from the stem by axially sliding thereon, and optionally activating a capacitive device touchscreen.

  • Patent number: 11241008
    Abstract: Formulations of pesticides are disclosed, specifically pesticidal blends of essential oils and other ingredients, that have been found to enhance the activity of the active pesticidal ingredients. The formulations may be, for example, emulsions or dust formulations. For example, a composition for controlling a target pest is disclosed that comprises at least one active agent and a formulation agent, wherein: the active agent is capable of interacting with a receptor in the target pest; the active agent has a first activity against the target pest when applied without the formulation agent and the composition has a second activity against the target pest; and the second activity is greater than the first activity.

  • Patent number: 11234435
    Abstract: A composition that can solvate biofilms and disrupt bacterial cell walls acts to both kill the bacteria by cell lysis and remove the biofilm. This solvent-containing composition is effective against a broad spectrum of microbes and can be used on a variety of surfaces, both living and inanimate. The polarity of the solvent component of the composition is lower than that of pure water so that the composition exhibits increased efficacy in solvating the macromolecular matrix of a biofilm and in penetrating bacterial cell walls.

  • Patent number: 11229211
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a formula or composition for use in reducing a honey bee parasitic mite infestation that may comprise, for example, a liquid, solid, or paste composition, comprising about 5-20% beta acids (about 5-75% by weight), about 5-75% by weight propylene glycol, about 5-75% by weight polysorbate 60, about 0.5-35% of a thixotropic material comprising, for example, fumed silica, and/or about 0.5-5% of an antioxidant comprising, for example, ascorbic acid, the composition is active against parasitic mites for more than about 14 days in the bee hives. Compositions of the present invention provide effective control, treatment, or prevention of honey bee parasitic mite infestation by inclusion of, for example, certain excipients that retard beta acid oxidation, prolong availability of active ingredient for bee uptake, improve convenience for beekeepers, or both retard beta acid oxidation and prolong the availability of active ingredient for bee uptake.
