Premium Scenting

Conventional aerosol air fresheners use heavy droplets that on average cover a ten foot square area for up to ten minutes. Premium Scenting by Ambius uses micron-sized particles that are so light they float and uniformly spread throughout the space.

The fastest acting rodenticide on the market. But what’s really clever is that our scientists have created a recipe that rodents love the taste of.
