Woodstream Corp., a manufacturer and marketer of branded pest and animal control products as well as lawn and garden products, has acquired Dynamic Solutions Worldwide, maker of DynaTrap insect traps.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Woodstream is a portfolio company of Vestar Capital Partners.

Based in Milwaukee, DynaTrap is a provider of insect traps with both indoor and outdoor applications. Its products are sold at home and hardware retailers including Home Depot, Costco, Sam’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon and Ace Hardware, as well as on QVC, HSN and online retailers.

“The addition of DynaTrap not only adds a highly regarded and successful product line to Woodstream’s existing offerings, but it also introduces us to additional blue-chip clients which complement our current roster of world-class customers,” said Miguel Nistal, CEO of Woodstream. “Demand for DynaTrap insect traps has never been higher as new and more potent strains of mosquito viruses develop each year. We are excited to welcome the DynaTrap team, and we remain on the lookout for additional strategic acquisitions that will supplement Woodstream’s strong organic growth.”
