  • What is the Precision Delivery System?

    The Precision Delivery System (PDS) is a brand new, innovative, hand-held microduster, designed to deliver precise amounts of dry flowable formulation into voids, cracks, and crevices. It allows PMPs to work quickly, accurately and precisely in their dry flowable applications potentially saving money and labor cost that effect the bottom line.
  • Can I use other products in my PDS such as dusts?

    No. Taurus® Dry is for use exclusively with the red-capped PDS. Doxem® Precise is for use exlusively with the grey-capped PDS. Use of other products in the PDS will cause the unit to clog and stop functioning. Do not use insecticides other than CSI dry flowables in the PDS.
  • Does the PDS always deliver product consistently?

    The PDS will deliver CSI dry-flowables very consistently. When the container nears empty, output may decrease depending upon many factors. When this occurs, simply use a new/full cartridge and recover any leftover dry flowable into the new cartridge.
  • Is the PDS metered/automatic?

    No. The PDS puts out dry flowable based on how long the trigger is actuated by a technician. View Rate Guides.
  • What type of battery does the PDS use? How do I change it?

    The PDS uses a standard 9 V battery. Please refer to our startup guide and/or instructional video (in business resources) on how to change the battery for more information.
  • Should I remove the cartridge from the PDS when I am finished using it for the day?

    Yes. If you are finished using the PDS for the day, remove the cartridge and store it in the provided pouch.
  • How should I clean the application equipment?

    To clean out the PDS, first remove the cartridge. To remove clogged material, use a canned air duster to clear the material from the tube. Alternatively, use a small pipe cleaner to remove extra material from the applicator tip or exit hole.
  • Can the PDS be used while upside-down?

    No. The PDS is, essentially, a duster, and like most dusters it does not function properly when actuated in the upside-down position.
  • What if my PDS doesn’t work?

    Please Contact Us and we will be in touch shortly!
  • What is Doxem® Precise?

    Doxem® Precise is the first Bait Solution to be introduced by Control Solutions, Inc. featuring the Precision Delivery System, Doxem® Precise is revolutionizing professional cockroach control.
  • Where can I use Doxem® Precise?

    Doxem® Precise is labeled for use indoors, outdoors and food handling areas. It has extensive instructions on indoor and outdoor cockroach management.
  • Can I use other products in my PDS such as dusts?

    No. Taurus® Dry is for use exclusively with the red-capped PDS. Doxem® Precise is for use exlusively with the grey-capped PDS. Use of other products in the PDS will cause the unit to clog and stop functioning. Do not use insecticides other than CSI dry flowables in the PDS.
  • How long does it take for Doxem® Precise to become effective after I’ve applied it?

    Doxem® Precise typically takes about 3 days to begin to see results. This is due to the slow acting feature of indoxacarb, the active ingredient in Doxem® Precise.
  • How long does Doxem® Precise last?

    Doxem® Precise lasts for more than 1 year.
  • What other insects are controlled with Doxem® Precise?

    Other than all species of cockroaches, Doxem® Precise also controls ants (excluding fire, pharaoh, harvester, and carpenter ants), booklice, carpet beetles, crickets, drugstore beetles, grain weevils, and silverfish.

    Doxem® Precise is designed to be applied with the Precision Delivery System (PDS) only.
  • What is the active ingredient in Doxem® Precise?

    Doxem® Precise contains 0.6% Indoxacarb.
  • What is the mode of action (MOA) in Doxem® Precise?

    Doxem® Precise contains 0.6% Indoxacarb. Indoxacarb is designated by the EPA to be a “reduced-risk” pesticide and belongs to the family of chemicals known as oxadiazines. These work by stopping sodium ions from entering nerve cells. This causes paralysis and ultimately death. Insects affected by indoxacarb will stop feeding and show lack of coordination or paralysis.

  • How does Doxem® Precise control pests?

    Doxem® Precise controls cockroaches and other pests in 2 ways. First, it is an attractive and palatable bait that the pests are encouraged to eat. Secondly, as the material is applied much like an insecticide dust, pests encounter the material in their normal activities and Doxem® Precise will adhere to their exoskeleton where it is then ingested during the grooming process.
  • What trials have been done to demonstrate the effectiveness of Doxem® Precise?

    Doxem® Precise has been tested and proven to be effective in studies conducted at independent labs and universities. For more information visit the Efficacy Trials page for cockroaches!
