Developing an effective pest control device is a blast
The process of bringing any innovative new product, such as the MOLECAT®, to market is a challenging, time consuming, frustrating, and fulfilling series of tasks and events. The challenges we faced as we developed, designed and manufactured our burrowing pest control device were many – like moles and gophers, unforeseen obstacles raised their heads… and usually at inopportune times.
Here at Triple T Machining we already had a rich history of making innovative products but we had to address the usual obstacles when implementing a new product line, such as:
• A technology change demanded a change in our production processes
• Re-tooling the machine shop
• Sourcing or making the new parts
• How to market and advertise this new MOLECAT® product
• Building and testing a working model
• How to package and label our new pest control device
• Meeting Local and National regulations
• Extensive product trials
If as they say, ‘Necessity is the Mother of Invention’, then we say, “Experimentation is definitely its Father”. Experimentation has been a main factor in the development of the MOLECAT® mole and gopher control device. Innovation and patience was needed as we learned to take each day and each model in stride in growing the MOLECAT® into its current form.
Taking the device to the next level required several months of working with our customers by listening to their feedback, and implementing their suggestions. A little tweaking and little honing created the needed improvements in the evolution of the MOLECAT®. During this product improvement era, almost all of the original parts had been replaced by new ones. Now rather than using off-the-shelf parts as we did in early models, we manufacture some of our own and others are manufactured specifically for us.
Trial and error drove the development of the MOLECAT® – a unique, patent-pending powder-activated burrowing pest control device. Our reusable system is technologically advanced over the old trap methods of pest control. Even today the MOLECAT® is being improved as we continue to listen and learn. We will never stop being innovators in our efforts to deliver the most effective mole killing device available.
