FOR OVER 30 YEARS, PACIFIC BIOCONTROL CORPORATION HAS BEEN PIONEERING THE EFFORTS IN MANUFACTURING AND IMPROVING PHEROMONE BASED MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
Pacific Biocontrol Corporation (PBC) is a US company with corporate headquarters in Vancouver, Washington. PBC was established in 1985 and sells its products through independent agricultural chemical distributors and dealers all over the world. PBC’s mission is to increase the use of its mating disruption formulations by increasing efficacy and decreasing costs to the grower. This is accomplished through formulation improvement and a gradual decrease in pest pressure. Towards this goal, PBC provides market, sales, and technical support to distributors, dealers, and growers.
In addition to registered products, PBC has several formulations under development. PBC cooperates with a leading university, government, and corporate researchers in the development of new formulations. Data are used to design new or improved formulations and to promote the effective use of existing products.
Product promotion through participation and presentations at grower and trade show meetings. Close contact with influential pest control advisors. Product advertisement in trade journals and direct mailings.
Sales programs for distributors and dealers designed to increase sales while providing the best technical support and effective use of pheromone products.
PBC staff is composed predominantly of technically trained and experienced entomologists. Close contact is maintained throughout the year with the dealer’s technical representatives and pest control advisors. PBC routinely monitors the quality and performance of its formulations during the season by dispenser analyses and bioassay. PBC participates in technology demonstrations conducted by university and government researchers. We support the use of mating disruption in various IPM area-wide programs.
