We have been on the hunt! We felt that the Australian pest control market needed an effective and comprehensive range of insect traps for stored product pests – covering a wide range of weevils, beetles and moths.
And we found Insects Limited, an insect pheromone (sex attractant) company from the USA based on science, education, and innovation.
Insects Limited contribute to the pest management industry by providing cutting edge food safety and pest control information and effective pheromone products. They actively look for ways to create new products that lead customers to save time and money in their insect monitoring program while giving them data and intel to make the right pest control decisions after early detection has occurred.
As a starting point, Agserv have launched four of Insects Limited products:
- The No Survivor Trap – which can easily be hung in warehouses, food manufacturing facilities or storage rooms. On its own the trap will not attract insects. It must be paired with a pheromone lure. Insects that are attracted to the lure are readily stuck in the glue upon entering the trap.
- The PTL Multi-Species Bullet Lure – which features pheromone lures for the most common stored products beetles and moths. It attracts: Indian meal moth, Cigarette beetle, Warehouse beetle Almond moth, Mediterranean flour moth, Tobacco moth Cabinet beetle and more.
- Food Moth Bullet Lure – this lure attracts: Indian meal moth, Mediterranean flour moth, Almond moth, Tobacco moth, and Raisin moth.
- All Beetle Trap with RTU Gel Cartridge – This trap includes a multi-species beetle attractant cartridge. Each cartridge contains a pheromone and food attractant gel mix that is used to monitor for the presence of food-infesting beetles including: Cigarette Beetle, Warehouse Beetle, Red Flour Beetle, Confused Flour Beetle, Saw-Toothed Grain Beetles, Merchant Grain Beetle, Flat Grain Beetles and many other species of food-infesting beetles.
The Bullet lure which was given its name for its resemblance of a 22-caliber bullet has a unique design compared to other lures on the market. The plastic enclosure, balls, cap, and membrane are all scientifically calculated to give you a consistent release of pheromone in turn giving you the most accurate monitoring data.
Insects Ltd also produce a wide range of other pheromone lures which we are investigating further.
