HOLISTIC PEST CONTROL
Integrated Pest Management or IPM is a long-term prevention process that allows you to solve pest problems in a business, institution or building while minimizing risks to people and the environment.
There are essentially three main aspects:
- Prevention of pest infestation through prevention such as hygiene measures.
- Monitoring the situation with regard to pests, i.e. detecting an infestation
- Control of a pest infestation in the most environmentally friendly way
So the secret of IPM is the collaboration between the client and the pest control company to pursue these aspects.
Futura products allow you to control pests along the IPM pyramid. For each level in the pyramid, we offer different products that can be used in a targeted manner.
THE CONNECTION BETWEEN IPM AND FUTURA
IPM’s goal is to minimize the use of pesticides in order to give preference to sustainable biological, physical and other non-chemical methods when they lead to a satisfactory result.
1. cultural and hygienic measures
The first step is to make it difficult for rodents and insects to access the warehouse/building. This is done through good hygiene. After that, pests should have as little chance as possible to enter the building. This includes well, for example, sealed windows, doors and repairs to the facade.
2. physical/mechanical control
The next step is to repel pests, for example by using repellents or by using beater traps, the most commonly used pest product in the world. Here there is the possibility of using sprays or foams that smell so unpleasant for the rodents or insects that it is no longer worth “breaking in”.
3. biological control
Biological control is the use of natural enemies – for example, predators, parasites – to control pests and their damage.
In IPM, pesticides are used only when needed and in combination with other approaches for more effective, long-term control. Pesticides are selected and applied to minimize their potential harm to humans, non-target organisms, and the environment. With IPM, you use the most effective and selective pesticide that is safest for other organisms and the quality of air, soil and water.
THE CLASSIC IPM PROCESS
In the following nine steps you will see the recreation of a city with different areas, such as fields, industrial buildings and private property. Suitable for each area, we have suggested one or more Futura products that you can use there. In addition, there are other possible combinations of the products, which you are welcome to discuss with a Futura expert at any time.
THE CONNECTION BETWEEN IPM AND FUTURA
Rat control in sewer manhole with RatCap
RatCap is a system designed to keep rats out of the sewer system without the use of rodenticides or traps. RatCap prevents the rats from coming to the surface from the sewers, where, for example, they visit garbage places to search for food. Due to lack of food and space, the population is said to decrease and migrate. The mechanical system closes the gap between the DIN-standard dirt trap baskets and the manhole. It is attached to the dirt trap and mounted with fastening clips. The product is durable and quick to assemble.
GreenHero Mouse Stop - Sealant
Whether it’s martens in the attic, mice in the garage, or rats in the basement or warehouse, rodents, insects, and other pests can get in through the smallest holes or cracks, cause major fouling, bring in disease, and destroy cables, pipes, and seals.
To keep rodents away efficiently, simple sealants are often not enough, as they can be easily destroyed by rodents. The GreenHero Mouse-Stop efficiently, long-lasting, quickly and reliably prevents pests from entering buildings or pipes.
Gorilla Traps for Mouse and Rat
Gorilla Trap for mice is the most humane mousetrap on the market. It is the first trap to be approved in accordance with §18 of the German Animal Welfare Act and has also been certified with the Blue Angel.
In addition to the usual Gorilla Traps quality, the Gorilla Traps mouse also has a few more features on board. On the underside, the spring tension of the pressure plate can be adjusted so that the trap is only triggered by rats or even lighter animals.
The pressure plate also has passive sensor technology, which with an eMitter system ensures that you can read the exact status of the trap and also detect when rodents run over an untensioned trap.
Gorilla Traps, as a stand-alone product or in combination with the eMitter digital trap control system and Nara products, meet the requirements of the AIB International Consolidated Standards.
Pest control with the GreenHero Mice-Ex
GreenHero Mice EX is an essential oil repellent that can be used indoors and outdoors.
Especially in cold months, but also in summer, mice look for suitable places to spend the night or to give birth to their offspring. Under certain circumstances, they can trigger diseases or cause material damage. Their feces contain bacteria and viruses that can also be dangerous for humans.
DIGITAL COMBINATION POSSIBILITIES WITH IMPACT TRAPS
Gorilla Traps mouse and also rat traps can be equipped with our eMitter systems for 24/7 digital monitoring. This has the advantage that you can easily and efficiently control the current trap status via app or the eMitter portal.
eMitter Outdoor Direct for outdoor use
eMitter® Outdoor Direct is the perfect stand-alone solution for digital pest control. You can view the status of the trap at any time – either via the online portal or directly in the eMitter® Pro app. Here you will not only be informed whether the trap is cocked or triggered, but also get a daily sign of life. This way you can be sure that the trap is active.
The compact eMitter Pro system for indoor use
The eMitter Pro Ecosystem is designed for all sizes of businesses and is infinitely expandable.
The main component of each installation is a controller that sends the information to the eMitter Cloud and notifies you via the smartphone.
Any number of eMitter transmitters can be connected to the controller, both indoors and outdoors.
If the distance to the traps is too great or the connection becomes weak, the range can simply be reinforced with any number of routers to cover even the largest corporate buildings.
Preventive measures for pest control with the raptor perch
The raptor perch is used for natural and poison-free control of rodents on your property or company premises, as it promotes the settlement of birds of prey in the immediate vicinity and provides them with a good vantage point for perching.
In addition, the raptor perch is a method of pest prevention, as rodents are captured before they enter your premises from outside.
OUR TOXIN-FREE ALTERNATIVES TO PESTICIDES
Futura has made it its business to develop poison-free alternatives for pest control that work efficiently and in the long term. Toxin-free alternatives protect non-target organisms, the environment, and us humans, too.
Monitoring with NARA
We have developed five different odor directions with NARA that can be used as a monitoring product indoors and outdoors. NARA® is a Best Product Award Winner and is used worldwide in the food, pharmaceutical and logistics industries. NARA® is the first allergen-free monitor designed specifically for this application. It meets the requirements of AIB and the use of NARA can help meet IFS Pest Control requirements.
NARA Stic fits ideally into any impact traps (Gorilla Traps) due to its “mushroom” shape and can thus be used in the unclamped trap for highly efficient monitoring.
NARA Bloc is an allergen-free monitor to detect and identify rodents. Applicable in any environment and any station.
Insect control with GreenHero Frost Spray
GreenHero Frost Spray is an insecticide-free spray that can be used against all pests such as wasps, bed bugs, mites, silverfish and many other stored product pests. It is particularly suitable for use on nests (wasp nest, ant nest, etc.).
The cold spray GreenHero Frost has a purely thermal mode of action, which does not allow the formation of resistance. Instead of insecticides, the product contains a volatile gas that cools to -45 °C in air. The pests are not poisoned, but simply frozen. The sudden cold causes the cells of the insects, larvae or eggs to burst and the pest dies immediately.
