Innovation in pest sector benefits facility managers

By Bayer

Digital Pest Management can change the way facility managers offer pest management services to clients across their business portfolio, by improving efficiency, traceability and transparency.

Gary Nicholas, Bayer sales manager for Digital Pest Management explains that traditional methods of pest management are very manual, which is time consuming and inefficient, but new innovative technology means there is now a solution to this.

“Digital Pest Management has been designed in conjunction with Microsoft to make rodent management across commercial sites much more efficient, transparent and targeted.

“It’s a cloud-based system which remotely inspects every bait station, every day of the year, producing a digital report that includes real time capture alerts when rodents are active,” he says.

The rodent traps are similar in appearance to those already widely in use, but what makes Bayer’s unique, is the specialist smart technology contained within the base of the trap.

Gary says this technology can provide a wealth of data to facility managers including:

  • A digital site plan showing the precise location of each individual trap. The smart traps are represented on the digital site plan by icons which change colour depending on their status. No more guessing or ‘not knowing’ where traps are located and their state of service.
  • Real time trigger and capture notifications which can be sent to facility manager’s devices, or indeed anyone that is authorised to receive alerts through the system software.
  • Heat mapping technology which provides invaluable data on current and historic rodent activity, where activity is reducing, increasing and importantly where there is no activity.
  • Daily diagnostic system checks every trap on every site, which provides facility managers with automated digital reports on status and activity. This is the equivalent of having all traps inspected, serviced and digitally reported on 365 days a year. A real time 24/7 integrated pest management system.
