Bonide: What’s New in 2017?

Today’s conscientious consumer has “sparked” the revival of natural pesticides, which have been available for many years. Bonide Products has the largest assortment of natural products to meet today’s consumers needs. For the 2017 season, Bonide is emphasizing their natural products with the “Garden Naturals Collection™.” This collection of familiar and time-tested products are featured in their 12 ft. Garden Naturals Collection™ assortment and their 4 ft. NOP (National Organic Program) Organic Gardening Assortment, featuring products approved “For Organic Gardening” by the USDA.

The award-winning Bonide Diagnostic Center continues to improve for the 2017 gardening season. The new touch screen now incorporates the original “insect & disease” based technology with the “plant-based” technology used in their recent version of the touch screen. Plus, now with the recent growth of Garden Naturals products they have added a section devoted to this category. Combining all this technology makes this new touch screen a truly indispensable unit for your employees and the DIY consumer coming to your store for a solution to their problem. Whether your business is Farm & Feed, Hardware or Lawn & Garden, Bonide has a Diagnostic Center assortment for you with the necessary products to make your store “the solution center” in your market. By purchasing a combination of assortments, the dealer receives increased co-op dollars on their purchases, increased Promo Bucks for retail aids, listing on the Bonide Dealer Locator and on local radio/print advertising, POP Kits, store level product knowledge meetings and also custom Greensmith circulars or postcards. See your local Bonide sales representative for all of the details.

As the independent retailer continues to search for ways to compete with the “Big Boxes,” Bonide, in their continued effort in supporting the independent retailer, is offering a 2-Year Plant Guarantee with the purchase of their Root & Grow® Plant Starter assortment. This is a unique promotion that allows the independent retailer an advantage in competing with the “Big Boxes” in the all-important area of plant sales. Bonide’s Root & Grow® Plant Starter contains a high-phosphorus liquid fertilizer with IBA, a proven root stimulant.

For the 2017 season Bonide is introducing a wide variety of new products to help provide effective solutions to your consumer insect, disease, and weed problems. Their new FleaBeater® and FleaBeater®-7 brands offer consumers effective products for use in the home, around the home and on the pet for control of fleas and other insects. The FleaBeater®-7 brand offers 7 month residual control and is available in dust, aerosol, liquid and fogger formulations for application to a variety of surface areas. Their new FleaBeater® for Pets RTU contains time-proven Fipronil (same active as Frontline®) and can be applied to puppies and kittens for control of fleas for up to 30 days.

Bedbug control continues to be an important category and Bonide has expanded our selection of products with the introduction of our Dual Action brand of Bedbug products. Included in the brand is a 3-pack Room Fogger, an aerosol for use on furniture and upholstery and a Ready-to-Use formula. All products give extended control of both the adults and eggs of bedbugs.

Rounding out the new introductions for 2017 is the addition of KleenUP® 365 RTU – an effective herbicide that provides year-long control of weeds. All-natural caterpillar control is now available in their new Bt RTU product. Finally, an all-natural lawn weed killer is now available with Bonide’s new WeedBeater Fe RTU. Safe on lawns, safe for children and pets and “deadly’ on lawn weeds.

Bonide continues to expand its national advertising to include DIY TV and HGTV. Their primetime ads reach over 57 million households. Couple this TV campaign with their new digital marketing campaigns, with Google and You Tube, plus their proven DIY & Garden Radio and print advertising, the Bonide brand will continue to grow and be an important “partner” in your growth as a retailer.
