SolaRid has improved and transformed pest control for agriculture and many other sectors. Not only can we target the pests that threaten food production, we can also protect forestry, or target mosquitoes and house flies. Our device has a 10-year design life, operating automatically 12 hours each evening avoiding beneficial pollinating insect during daytime periods. The device monitors insect infestation levels with a collection bag and is designed to control dangerous accumulations below Economic Injury Levels as defined in MP144. Powered by solar energy, the products’ continuous operations relentlessly eliminate targeted species, reducing insect populations during multiple reproduction cycles over an entire growing season, lowering annual operating expenses.
