This week, Bryan and Steve cover a CDC report about a few acute illness cases involving Nuvan Pest Strips. Steve also shares the story of Ben Feldman and Bryan reminds us the importance of keeping your axe sharp.
Here’s the link to the CDC report on Nuvan Pest Strips.
Social media, from time to time – somebody will post a pic of Nuvan Strips misuse.
One thing that I just became aware of was that the CDC has had some reports of consumers becoming ill after using those strips. It was mostly headaches, maybe a few some respiratory issues, maybe even some upset stomachs.
It’s almost always label misuse, usually when the consumer is exposed to the product for four hours a day or more.
But these strips, the active ingredient is Dichlorvos (Die-klore-vos) which is an organophosphate.
That being said, If you see a customer misusing Nuvan Strips, consider it your duty to alert them of these issues.
