Bio-insecticides average $700, chemical insecticides $350+. The cost of using SolaRid is about $14 - $23 per acre, per year.
SolaRid is highly effective at killing food crop pests. Check our "Effectiveness" page for numbers.
SolaRid has a collection device. You can see the results and measure the impact Solarid units are having on your farm.
Can be operated at night so as to avoid beneficial, pollinating honey bees whose numbers have been severely affected by pesticide use.
Pesticides are linked to a wide range of human health hazards, from short-term impacts such as headaches and nausea to chronic impacts like cancer, reproductive harm, endocrine disruption and premature death.

In Africa the economic impact of Malaria exceeds $11 billion per year. The WHO estimates that more than 200 million cases of Malaria cause 650,000 deaths each year. SolaRid technology is being developed for effective mosquito control for both widespread and personal use.
SolaRid is 100% organic; however it is industrial strength, employing powerful attractants that are unquestionably effective - scientifically documented to exploit the biology of insects.
Bio-insecticides currently used in organic agriculture average $700 per acre, chemical insecticides $350 per acre. The cost of SolaRid for agricultural application is less than $14 per acre, per year.
SolaRid is highly effective. Formal studies are being conducted with the United States Department of Agriculture, with universities and private organizations to pinpoint the numbers. Early, informal studies on the effectiveness of the SolaRid technology have shown 70% and higher reduction of problem insects.
