Roach killers prepare for pest battle
After capturing first place in FSB's 2007 Business Plan Competition, Green Dragon Roach Kill is ready to wage war on pests. Founder and CEO Jay Mullis, 31, says a group of Texas investors has agreed to pump $750,000 into Green Dragon if federal environmental authorities approve the product later this spring, as expected. Hoping to start production, Mullis recently rented a 3,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Macon, Ga., and ordered raw materials - primarily boric acid - for his environmentally friendly, pet-safe roach-killing bait. Mullis says four pest-control companies have already placed orders. - Patricia B. Gray
