Share Article

The adhesive pest trap company, Envirometrics Systems, Inc., is sold to USA Company

Envirometrics Systems Inc., manufacturer of the BugBarrier Tree Band®, is now Envirometrics Systems USA Inc. The new company is headquartered in Victor, New York. The previous company, owned by Denis Crane, was located in London, Ontario.

Envirometrics Systems USA Inc. is owned by Brian, Kathleen and Duane Pancoast. Brian and Duane Pancoast also own The Pancoast Concern, Ltd., a 27 year old marketing and communications firm that focuses on tree, landscape and lawncare accounts.

The BugBarrier Tree Band is a pesticide-free, adhesive tree banding system for trapping insects on tree trunks. Its dense, flexible, fiber barrier is first wrapped around the trunk to fill bark crevices. The adhesive film barrier is then installed over the fiber, with the adhesive facing the tree. This unique design eliminates unsightly debris and keeps insect carcasses out of sight. Best of all, it can be installed in less than five minutes.

In 2003, the fledgling Environmentrics Systems Inc. retained The Pancoast Concern as its communications firm. A year later, The Pancoast Concern added sales and marketing to its communications management responsibilities, with Brian Pancoast serving as commercial sales manager.

Envirometrics Systems USA President & CEO Brian Pancoast says that his first goal is to expand the current distribution network to make the BugBarrier Tree Band more accessible to those who need it. He says all manufacturing will be moved to the United States by the first of the year.

“We have been a part of Envirometrics Systems’ growth for nearly a decade,” Pancoast explains, “so, when Denis Crane announced plans to retire and offered us the company, we took the opportunity to continue the legacy of protecting trees against dangerous insects.”

Pancoast says contact information is unchanged. The phone number is 800.379.9677; the website is http://www.treebands.com and his email continues to be bpancoast@treebands.com. The company headquarters is at 27 Maple Avenue, Victor, NY 14564.
