Yes, that’s right, I’ll say it again. Specifially, I think I have fallen in love with myRentokil’s pest trend analysis function…what a nerd I hear you say!
But this function is an exceptionally good tool if you want to implement a truly effective integrated pest management programme (IPM).
Rather than the myriad of IPM systems out there that claim to work…this tool ACTUALLY works. Click here for a demo.
Existing paper systems capturing data such as fly catch tray analysis are good but can be sometimes buried, with key information not getting to the right people until its too late. There is no hiding place for pests from myRentokil! It tells you exactly what pest you have, how many you have and where you have them, immediately after a pest control technician has visited your site via the online portal.
The time for burying our heads in the sand is gone. If a commercial business is serious about controlling pests then using the pest trend analysis function is the first step in making a real improvement to your pest prevention programme.
Don’t get me wrong, this is not all one sided, we (as pest control professionals) get the benefit too as this management tool allows us to manage pest activity more effectively and react early where infestation strikes, thereby minimizing the impact of the pest.
If I had had this tool in my research days I would have generated some pretty cool data. And I know some population ecologists who would give their right arms for such a powerful data capturing system.
