Our customers - The basis of our work
In our last Customer Success Stories, we talked about customers from the B2B environment. That’s why it’s all the more exciting for us to let B2C customers have their say for once. An avid user of various eMitter products agreed to share his experience with us and we were able to learn a lot of new things.
Tech-savvy and enthusiastic about innovation probably best describe this interview participant. Various smart home products for home and garden have already been tested by him privately. As the owner of a farm, it is therefore not surprising that smart pest control products have also found their way into his home. An initial skepticism towards digital rat traps “Who needs that?!” was quickly replaced by enthusiasm. After some financial damage caused by rats, the decision was made: something had to be done.
“To achieve the best possible control results, the interview participant recommends studying the system intensively, experimenting a lot, and converting the knowledge gained into goal-oriented measures. That way, success is guaranteed.”
Previous control attempts with conventional beat traps and poisons were unsuccessful. Often analog strike traps are forgotten and the effect of the poison is not understandable. The advantage of a digital system: “It’s taken care of”. Connecting with an app makes pest monitoring more interesting. In addition, successes can be recorded directly: “Rat hunting becomes much more efficient.” Especially at neuralgic points, such as the feed crusher or in stables, a system such as eMitter Outdoor Direct offers the advantage of being able to combat an infestation directly.
In combination with the eMitter PestCam, further insights into rodent activity could be collected. Did you know that even a dead pest in a trap does not necessarily lead to avoidance behavior? The PestCam recorded how more harmful rodents ran around a dead rat. In doing so, they sometimes very skillfully balanced between several traps and reached places that were actually unreachable by jumping high. Especially compared to traditional monitoring, analyzing fecal and feeding traces, a digital system offers the chance to learn even more about pests.
In addition, the overall monitoring system improves as traps that are not optimally placed can be directly detected and placed in a more appropriate location. In addition to the learnings on pest behavior, the interviewee was also excited about the battery life of the products. According to him, “they consume virtually no battery.” The system works.
In conclusion, the interview participant said that, with the help of the system, he has become a “better hunter.”
