The inception of IGI, LLC. began after years of working within the burrowing rodent eradication market sector utilizing various approaches and products for that purpose. From chemical baits to oxygen/propane detonation devices, all were tried and while some were better than others in eradicating these rodents, all of these products had their potentially lethal and/or toxic side effects. The baits are dangerous for pets, children and predators because they are poisonous. Endangered species are often killed as well as other predators.
The Eliminator® Line of Pest Control Products
Utilizing an inert gas to eliminate many pests without the dangers and pitfalls of other available methods, has proven to be the answer. CO₂ by its very nature is heavier than air and as such sinks into the soil or fumigates from the lowest level to the highest point as in the case of storage facilities. By utilizing the Eliminator® remote monitor the applicator knows throughout the fumigation process the concentration of the IGI Carbon Dioxide and the label booklet allows the applicator to accurately know the duration of the fumigation process underway.
With burrowing rodents, because CO2 is heavier than air, it penetrates deep into the soil with little danger of seeping out. Plus, it helps root structures to produce healthier plants. Also, with the ever present danger of Bubonic Plague carrying fleas this next product offering has undergone final field trials prior to submission to the EPA. This is a label addition that is frequently asked for and IGI is responding as quickly as possible.
Because bed bug infestation is such a serious danger to humans IGI has undertaken the next step in control of these insects and is entering final clinical trials with GLP protocols to establish the IGI Carbon Dioxide as the future answer to bed bug infestations. Once trials are completed IGI will make submission to the EPA for this label addition.
