Many pest controllers in Germany and worldwide use more and more digital pest products. This is mainly due to the fact that various regulations and laws can result in high penalties, up to production stoppage and business closures. For example, the Animal Protection Act prohibits making an animal suffer unnecessarily long, even if this is a hygienically necessary and important control. A digital mouse trap or a digital rat trap immediately indicates as soon as a rodent has entered the trap. Professional products, such as eMitter products, also offer the possibility of holistic pest monitoring; e.g. selected eMitter products already indicate infestation even if the impact trap has not been triggered.
Surely many still remember conventional exterminators who used conventional traps, poison and other tools to clear cellar rooms of rats or even to fight ants, moths, silver fish, rats, mice and bugs in factories and households. Even today, many people still consider the use of poison to be without alternative - this is not correct; Futura has been developing products for years which make pest control, pest prevention and pest monitoring poison-free and yet highly efficient and reliable. Large pest control companies already rely on the experience and competence of Futura and the products of the brands eMitter, NARA, GorillaTraps and Greenhero.
One of Futura's main goals was to provide pest controllers and companies with professional products that not only eliminated the workload, such as the daily checking of impact traps, but also made pest control more environmentally friendly, sustainable and efficient. After digital pest control, monitoring should also be digitalised and toxin-free. Instead of using food as an attractant, which was inefficient not only because of the heavy insect infestation, Futura developed the NARA products. The allergen-free attractants can be firmly integrated into the impact traps, used for efficient monitoring and insect infestation was eliminated and pest controllers and auditors alike were equally convinced that not only digital but also poison-free pest control had become possible.
Whether monitoring mousetraps, driving away rats or installing insect traps - all traps have arrived in today's professional pest control and are not only highly efficient, but help companies and pest controllers to minimise the time needed for control. With Wlan Routers, modern technology and ever new products from the digital world, the time saved in pest control has been reduced to a minimum with even greater efficiency. Total pest control 24 hours a day, 7 days a week has become not only possible, but essential.
Today, however, not only digital traps are important. In order to be able to completely rule out pest infestation, it is also necessary to control the access routes of rats, mice and insects. Here too, Futura offers the PestCam, a camera which can record and log where and when pests were present, where they came from and how they entered a building.
Traps, such as the popular GorillaTraps from Futura work perfectly in conjunction with eMitter products. Thus, the GorillaTraps rat trap can be equipped with the eMitter Outdoor Direct. The Outdoor Direct is registered directly in the eMitter app and immediately sends signals to the smartphone; including an alive signal to check daily whether the transmission is working, an "infestation signal" if something on the trap has moved and of course a signal that sends a triggering signal to the trap. All signals can be distinguished and are stored in the app. In this way a larger pest infestation can be dealt with quickly without having to monitor all areas expensively.
A daily "running down" of the traps is of course also unnecessary with the signal system, as the trap shows by itself whether the trap has triggered or not.
Desinfecta has been an innovative pest control company in Switzerland since 1921. The partnership between Desinfecta and Futura began almost 10 years ago. They were the first partner to rely on Futura's digital eMitter system and saw a lot of potential in digital solutions.
