Fruit Focus welcomed a record breaking 1,300 visitors through their gates this year! Russell IPM’s Product Manager Hussein Fawzi and Horticultural Development Manager Dr Clare Sampson of Keele University were in attendance to provide the visiting growers with Russell IPM's latest and most novel solutions for crop protection.

The event, which is held at East Malling Research Centre in Kent, welcomed their highest number of visitors yet. The team from Russell IPM were there to show off their latest innovations in soft fruit protection including Optiroll for aphids, whitefly and thrips control, and iPest Plus the pest control reporting app.

Another key product showcased was the Russell IPM Xlure SWD pheromone for monitoring populations of the devastating Drosophila suzukii, spotted wing fruit fly. This fruit fly pest has become more prominent in the UK’s fruit orchards, but with Russell IPM’s solid Xlure SWD lure, the Drosophila present can be closely monitored to ensure timely treatment and prevent infestation.

Finally, the Russell IPM team had a fantastic time at the event and would like to thank the organisers  and all those who took the time to visit the Russell IPM stand. The team were able to discuss their products and ideas with many potential and long-standing customers, distributors and suppliers from the UK, Europe and beyond. The team look forward to Fruit Focus 2017.

Pest Protect 2016

Pest Protect 2016 provided the perfect opportunity for Russell IPM to launch the iPest rodent monitoring system to the German market. The event was the ideal place to showcase the technology and allow visitors to get hands-on with this innovative new system.

The iPest system collects real-time data on rodent activity and sends the information directly to a smartphone through the iPest mobile app or email, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The wireless technology utilises a double trigger mechanism to detect the presence of rats or mice in the bait station, which prevents false notifications and ensures any information recorded is accurate.

Paul Sidebottom, our business development manager explained: “iPest is a simple to use monitoring system that gives pest controllers accurate information on rodent infestation levels whilst helping to identify the success of the treatments employed.”

He added: “The advantage of the iPest system over other electronic devices on the market is the fact that iPest will not give false positives. This prevents wasted site visits and unnecessary inspection of empty traps reducing labour and transport costs.”

Russell IPM were also happy with the interest shown in the company's related rodent products, such as the Snap’Em range of gels and tabs for clean and safe rodent attraction. The formula, devised by Russell’s R&D department, contains highly attractive non-toxic ingredients for use with snap traps and bait stations such as those in the iPest range.

Everyone in the team was extremely pleased with the turnout for this major product launch in Germany and they are looking forward to the next Pest-Protect event.
