Why you need pest control for agriculture
Pastures and yields can be badly damaged when pests aren’t managed. That can mean significant yield and quality losses. Pests such as Black Beetle, Clover Root Weevil and Black Field Crickets have been known to reduce pasture sizes, which have been devastating to dairy farms across Aotearoa.
Whether it’s for your farm, storage facility or building, call 0800 710 010. Speak to our experts and book a pest inspection.
We can work with your Integrated Pest Management strategy
IPM strategies are environmentally sensitive. Instead of broadly spraying with pesticides as a deterrent, we’re working with farmers to develop pest thresholds that work for their farms.
IPM strategies widely used in the NZ agricultural industry include:
- Using soft pesticides or chemicals that preserve beneficial species
- Use of spray thresholds
- Checking regularly for pests
- Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy
- Physical traps and barriers
- Crop rotations
- Weed control
- Planting native vegetation
- Tolerating non-economic damage
- Use of transgenic crops, for example, BT cotton
Target rodents and other pests with SMART Digital Pest Control
Physically monitoring your property for signs of pests is effective, but time consuming. SMART Digital Pest Control works in conjunction with your IPM strategy.
Basic pest control monitors for signs of rodents and pests after the damage is done.
SMART is different. Sensors detect and record pest activity in real-time. This enables our technicians to have a targeted approach and devices can be placed where activity is highest. So, you can respond with real-time statistics based on number and frequency.
Devices and treatment are more targeted with SMART data, reducing loss of yield and quality in an environmentally sensitive way.
Why farms and the agriculture industry choose SMART Digital Pest Control
Investing in SMART saves you time, money and is good for the environment. SMART puts you in control. Instead of reacting to an infestation, SMART farms are a step ahead.
- Reporting data is live.
- Traps are non-toxic.
- Contamination and wastage of yield and money are avoided.
- Hard to reach and hidden places are detected and monitored.
- Data is collected, monitored and saved remotely.
- Loss of yields and quality from rodent infestations are no longer a worry.
SMART Digital Pest Control helps you understand your pest numbers. So, it will help you plan your Integrated Pest Management strategy.
How does SMART Digital Pest Control work?
Our technicians visit your property to inspect, assess and identify the risk zones. We then use this information to create a tailored action plan. Sensors and devices are strategically placed onsite to detect infestations and efficiently deal with pests. These SMART units report back in real-time to our SMART data hub.
We find that technology combined with traditional practices and your IPM keep rodent numbers and pests under control.
Our technicians will continue to regularly inspect, empty and relocate devices when needed. Armed with SMART data analysis, we provide you with essential information to take action.
Create a tailored, treatment plan that works with your IPM. Call 0800 710 010 and get your property inspected by a professional.
