Enrol Now to Become a Vespex European Wasp Accredited Specialist

05/08/2021
With Spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to enrol to become a Vespex Accredited Specialist.
 
Sundew Solutions was proud in late 2020 to bring pest management professionals Australia’s very first APVMA approved remote toxicant baiting solution for European Wasps (vespula germanica).  
 
European Wasp was first found in Australia in 1959 after being introduced from overseas.  This non-native pest has become established in Tasmania, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia.  There have even been reports of nests being found in South East Queensland.
 
Traditionally, this pest has been treated by direct application to nests of an insecticidal dust and/or spray application.  This relies on the nest being able to be located and accessed.  
 
So what do you do when you don’t know where the nest is, or it isn’t accessible, or you cannot gain access to the property where nests are located, or you have an environmentally sensitive area where direct treatment just simply isn’t allowed?
 
“Sundew has been conducting extensive research and development over the past 7 years on a range of solutions to address these various challenging scenarios,” explained David Priddy, CEO of Sundew Solutions.  “The use of Vespex European Wasp Liquid Lure in combination with Sundew Ensnare PRO 50 SC Indoxacarb, is the first of several tools we are researching to help treat this serious environmental and public health pest.”

“We’ve received similar excited positive reports from VESPEX Accredited Specialists across Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania,” said David Priddy, C.E.O. of Sundew Solutions.

Pulling Together in an Uncertain World COVID-19 – Sundew Solutions

03/04/2020

As an industry, during these uncertain times we should all be pulling together to help each other.  Aussies have had it all in the past 6 months – drought, fires, floods and now a pandemic.  The only thing certain is uncertainty.  

One weakness that COVID-19 has brought to everyone’s attention is the reliance we have on China and overseas suppliers.  It’s now more than ever that we each need to do our part to support local Aussie businesses to keep the wheels spinning. 

“When you buy Sundew products, you know that you are supporting a family business, 100% Australian owned,” said David Priddy, owner of Sundew Solutions.  “We’re (Sundew) an Aussie family business, just like the pest management professionals that make up the Australian Pest Management industry.”

Ant Solutions from Sundew

02/09/2019
“With the weather warming up soon, ants are going to be making their presence felt in and around homes in Australia.” explained Rowan Gregson, Technical Solutions Advisor at Sundew Solutions.

“Excluding termites, ants are considered to be the number one pest in Australia and it’s no wonder considering how widespread they are and how persistent they can be.  They are also the most likely pest to result in a call back for pest managers, so getting it right the first time is vital.” said Rowan.

Custom insecticide made at Australian Pest Managers’ requests

29/03/2018

There aren’t many research and development companies in Australia that a pest management professional can ring and ask them to make a customised insecticide.  There are plenty of generic suppliers who are happy to copy someone else’s product.  But developing something totally new and innovative takes a special company with exceptional talent to turn an idea into reality.  

Such was the case with EnsnarePRO introduced to the Australian market early in the year.  EnsnarePRO, containing 50 g/L indoxacarb is the result of pest managers across Australia asking for a non-staining easy to use liquid formulation.  Up until the launch of this product the industry was told it wasn’t possible to make a non-staining liquid version of indoxacarb.  Identifying the dire need the industry was seeking, Sundew formulation chemists and development team set about creating the impossible.  In early 2018 Sundew was excited to announce the release of ENSNARE PRO 50SC with Smart Kill Technology™.   EnsnarePRO is a world first indoxacarb non-repellent, odourless, non-staining residual suspension concentrate spray for use indoors and outdoors.
