MARYSVILLE, Ohio, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pest control has never been easier and more accurate thanks to the new Ortho Comfort Wand. This innovative design was developed with the consumer in mind and will maximize efficiency while minimizing difficulty when dealing with weed and bug control.
The Ortho Comfort Wand makes lawn and garden chores simple. No more bending, pumping or hand fatigue. The Wand has an ergonomic handle design with extended reach to ensure pesticide application directly to the targeted area, maximizing efficiency. The adjustable nozzle allows use of the sprayer indoors and outdoors with a single twist, and without getting hands wet. One-touch continuous spray eliminates the need for pumping to generate pressure or hand fatigue from squeezing a trigger sprayer.
"While all past applicators have improved the experience of using Ortho products, the Comfort Wand is the first Ortho applicator that does not require manual work, thus bringing to light our mission - 'No bugs, no weeds, no work,'" said Chris Seagram, Ortho brand manager.
The Wand is compatible with Ortho Home Defense Max Insect Killer Indoor and Perimeter1, Ortho Flower, Fruit & Vegetable Insect Killer, and Ortho Weed B Gon Max plus Crabgrass Control.
