‘Protect Your Grow’

Special Report - 2022 State of the Pest Control Market Report | Executive Letter

Zoëcon Professional Products, the professional pest control division of Central Life Sciences, has been at the forefront of pest control since its founding in 1968, when Dr. Carl Djerassi and his team developed the first insect growth regulator (S)-Methoprene. That molecule ultimately revolutionized insect control and paved the way for many more innovations across a wide variety of markets.

At Zoëcon, we place an emphasis on staying in tune with the latest trends and demands within our industry. This is why we chose to support Cannabis Business Times’ exclusive research on pest challenges facing today’s cultivators and how they are managing them. And, as society’s concern for environmental responsibility grows, so does ours. That’s why we’re bringing environmentally friendly insect control innovation to the growing cannabis market with the expanding Essentria® line of products.
