The Bábolna Bio stand was full to capacity during the three days of Parasitec in Paris. It was a case of the full range of products on display, a full range of staff and a continual number of visitors to make the stand full.
Founded in 1965, over 50 years ago, Bábolna Bio has researched and developed an impressive array of products for the professional pest control industry. Several of these, especially their newest products were on display on the stand.
On display was their range of insect control products based around the insect growth regulator, S-methoprene and sold under the trademark, Biopren. Alongside these was the extensive range of Protect rodenticide products based on the active, bromadiolone. Several of these are sold in unique formulation types, for example ready-to-use Protect Sensation where the fresh bait is contained within the extruded wax block.
New faces at Bábolna
Whilst visitors to the stand may be familiar with the products, there were two new members of Bábolna staff to meet.

The most recent person to become part of the Bábolna staff ‘family’ is Ildiko Mar (above right) who only joined in September this year. Pest control is new to Ildiko so she admits there is much to learn, having previously worked for Borsodchem, a manufacturer of raw materials which go into the production of PVC resin. Just as she was with her previous employer, Ildiko is the export manager for Bábolna covering Western Europe. As well as Hungarian, she speaks German and English.
For those who may be wondering, Ildiko takes on this role from Erika Erdei who is retiring at the end of the year. We all wish you a happy retirement Erika.
By comparison, Krisztina Magyar (above left) is not quite so new, having begun her career with Bábolna in January this year. She too is looking after export countries, but her brief includes Australia, USA, South America and the Middle East. Also coming from outside the industry, Krisztina worked for 25 years in the automotive industry where she was key account manager for anti-vibration products for commercial vehicles. Also multilingual, she speaks Russian, English, French and of course, Hungarian.
