ST. PAUL, Minn. -- May 17, 2013

Ecolab introduces the STEALTH^® Fusion Fly Light, a proprietary addition to
Ecolab Pest Elimination’s industry-leading Large Fly Program that combines the
company’s patented fly light and award-winning STEALTH Fly Station technology
into one best-in-class solution for eliminating large flies indoors.

“Large flies can easily transmit common pathogens such as Salmonella and E.
coli, so the presence of large flies inside a restaurant is a threat to food
safety,” said Dr. John Barcay, senior scientist and urban entomologist for
Ecolab Pest Elimination. “Ecolab is committed to providing proactive and
discreet fly elimination solutions, and the STEALTH Fusion Fly Light is an
effective solution to help prevent large flies from impacting foodservice
operations.”

Ecolab Pest Elimination's Research, Development & Engineering team developed
the STEALTH Fusion Fly Light after extensive testing of fly behavior to better
understand how flies adjust and react to different types of stimuli. It is a
dark, reflective device that uses multiple stimulating characteristics to
attract and eliminate flies inside a facility before they can become a
problem. When placed near common fly areas in field testing, the light has
been shown to capture up to 170 percent more flies than a standard fly light.

The STEALTH Fusion Fly Light will be featured at the Ecolab booth – #4000 – at
the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, May
18-21, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Other recent Ecolab Pest Elimination innovations include the STEALTH^® Fly
Station, STEALTH Maxima^® Fly Light, CheckPoint^® Interior and CheckPoint^®
Exterior Rodent Stations, and Finito™, a ready-to-use solution for food
contact surfaces.
