Patrick Sonnenburg has been a pest controller for 17 years. He started as an employee, but founded his own company in summer 2015. Sonnenburg Schädlingsbekämpfung GmbH started as a 1-man company and today has about 8 employees.
"From the very beginning", Sonnenburg has been focusing on innovative, ecological and sustainable pest control. A wide variety of products are used, such as Gorilla Traps, Nara Spray, Nara Stic and Nara Bloc, but also products such as the GreenHero Frost Spray.
Futura has accompanied Patrick Sonnenburg since he became self-employed. "At my old employer, I had heard of Futura many times before, but had no real connection to it." This changed with his move into self-employment, as from now on he was responsible for new products and alternatives himself. Through his old employer he had already gained experience with some of Futura's products and continues to use them in his own company.
"A big advantage of Nara is that you don't mess up the traps with Nutella, peanut cream or anything else. Something like that starts to get moldy afterwards. Hygiene plays an important role here, for example in the food industry. Here one is also anxious not to bring in poisons and active substances and there the Nara Stic and Nara Bloc are naturally predestined for. It always depends entirely on the customer requirements."
"This cannot be generalized directly." Sonnenburg uses all varieties of Nara. "We somehow try to capture what is best accepted and these are usually the classics chocolate and vanilla."
"Yes, definitely. Especially since we have gone into digitalization with blow traps and do permanent monitoring. Nara is predestined for this."
"In terms of digital permanent monitoring or even before the aspect of hygiene, I clearly recommend Nara. In the industry you talk to each other and if a colleague arrives who smears his traps with Nutella, he will certainly be made aware of Nara."
"We want to introduce as few toxins and rodenticides as possible into nature. All in the direction of permanent monitoring and non-toxic". The industry continues to develop and Sonnenburg focuses on digital, ecological and non-toxic pest control.
