QuestSpecialty Introduces New EPA 25(b) Exempt, Non-Toxic Lice Killer

QuestSpecialty Corporation adds to its line of non-toxic, EPA 25(b) exempt pest control products with PROWLER Lice Killer, formulated to kill lice on porous and non-porous surfaces. It is ideal for treating inanimate environmental surfaces such as pillows, furniture, clothing, lockers, coat racks, and other surfaces where there has been a lice outbreak.

PROWLER Lice Killer does not require EPA registration as it is formulated with ingredients identified by the EPA as having low to no toxicity. It uses the same technology as LIGHTS OUT Bed Bug Killer, another QuestSpecialty pest control product which is EPA 25(b) exempt. Both products have third-party certification regarding their effectiveness.

Instead of using neurotransmitter chemicals, which cause death by attacking the insect’s nervous system, these products use mechanical killing agents which cause death by dehydration. The precisely manufactured formulations, comprised of ingredients which qualify for the 25(b) exemption in the EPA Pesticide Regulations or considered G.R.A.S (Generally Regarded as Safe), cause mortality by breaking down the insect’s exoskeleton, thus causing dehydration.

“In addition to offering customers a non-toxic solution to these bothersome bugs, there are no concerns attached to EPA registration as the products don’t need to be EPA registered,” notes Alex Pratt, director of technical services at QuestSpecialty Corporation. “That means distributors and end-users won’t have compliance concerns with EPA and the pesticide regulatory agent in their state. It also means there is no certification needed for application, mandatory notification prior to use, nor concerns about reports regarding improper application.”

Other products in the QuestSpecialty line of minimum risk pest control products are ADIOS Drain Fly Repellent and DEEP SIX Lice Treatment Spray (for use on the body). Visit www.QuestSpecialty.com for more information.
