Pest Protect 2016

Russell IPM at Pest Protect 2016 – Stuttgart Germany

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.
