Last week, The BugPlug made its New England debut at the NEPMA annual trade show/expo in Boxboro, Mass. The interest shown by both the attendees and other vendors was very promising.

Once the attendees realized how much time and money could be saved by using The BugPlug on their termite jobs, we could literally see the interest peak! Questions were asked and answers were given about the functionality and how termite specialists could save time and money by using the product.

If you are not familiar with The BugPlug, in short, it is a plastic plug used to cap the holes left behind from termite jobs. It leaves a very professional, finished look for the customer, while saving loads of time and labor for the pest control technician. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the site @ www.thebugplug.com .

But the PCO’s were not the only ones interested in learning more about The BugPlug, there seemed to be some growing interest from some retailers who, if they decided to, could carry The BugPlug in their stores to make them available to the masses. For anyone seeking this product, it would obviously serve as a convenience for them to be able to purchase them at their local pesticide retailer (e.g.. ensystex, residex, etc.)

We are thankful to all of our customers and look forward to the future serving them!

Until next time,

BugPlug Fills in Drill Holes Left from Termite Jobs

BRAD HARBISON | September 13, 2013 – PCT Magazine

A new product from a New Jersey pest control company closes holes left behind during termite jobs.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. — As a pest control operator with 17 years of experience doing termite work, one of Gerry LaBruzza’s greatest frustrations was the time and labor it took to fill in holes left behind from drilling.

LaBruzza, owner of Guardian Termite and Pest Control, Toms River, N.J., felt there had to be a better alternative to the painstaking task of patching up the holes with concrete. So, he enlisted the help of son Joseph LaBruzza and the duo set out to find a solution themselves. After several months experimenting with different prototypes, they developed the BugPlug, a product that fits snugly into the holes left behind during termite jobs, and is held in place by protruding wings strategically placed along its core.

According to Joseph LaBruzza, the BugPlug quickly and efficiently close holes while leaving a polished, professional appearance. The entire installation takes just seconds per hole, saving the technician hours from each job, and his employer hours of pay as well, he added.

For companies that may be interested in branding, it is also possible to have the company logo printed on top of the plugs.

“The BugPlug was developed out of a need for such a product. I have performed many termite jobs and never did I look forward to patching the holes, by the time you cork and cement 100-plus holes, your back and knees are aching, not to mention it almost never looks great,” said Joseph LaBruzza. “The BugPlug fixes the aesthetic problems, it installs in seconds and gets me off to the next job quicker.”

LaBruzza introduced the BugPlug at August’s New Jersey Pest Management Association 66th annual clinic, tradeshow and clambake on the Cook College Campus of Rutgers, and he said the product was well received.

LaBruzza said the product is not available through any distributors yet, but it can be ordered directly at www.thebugplug.com (and payment can also be made through PayPal).

LaBruzza added that the product is patent pending.
