Our Staff © Etex Ltd.  2010. Electro-Gun is a registered trademark of Etex Ltd.   Made with Xara by Mike Fortuna; Etex Ltd. Mike's education in law and chemistry combined with more than 38 years of experience as a plant manager and quality control director for several large companies in the aerospace and chemical industries, is a perfect match with the Etex strategic plans for growth. His abilities and experience established a record of positive bottom line impact for those companies. Mike first offered his professional expertise to Etex on a consulting basis for five years, then in early 2009, Etex brought him on board as C.O.O. His background, education, and business unit management record makes him ideal as part of the Etex core team. Concerning the Electro-Gun, Mike says, "The Electro-Gun is designed to be an effective treatment in areas where access is available. It was not designed to replace all other methods of control, but rather to work in harmony with them. It is great at reducing time on callbacks where only a spot treatment is required. And most importantly, in today's economy, is that it allows the pest control company to offer a green alternative that can "get them in the door." The inspection may reveal that the infestation does not warrant the Electro-Gun's use. We feel that at least the company has gotten in and now has the opportunity to take care of the problem for the customer. In those cases where the Electro-Gun is used, customers are happy that they and their loved ones were not exposed to anything perceived as harmful. Since we have had considerable success using the Electro-Gun on wood-boring insects in Portugal, Tahiti, and Costa Rica, Fortuna also plans targeted expansion into other countries in Europe and South America. "It's one of the most effective and environmentally-friendly tools out there for rounding out a complete termite management program," he says, "and has really been well accepted by those who use it."
