PestWest release new smart flying insect control system

PestWest has launched flyDetect®, a new remote monitoring pest management system for fly control, following a successful field test at a Sheffield hospital.

Part of the Killgerm Group, PestWest specialises in flying insect control. flyDetect® is a 24/7 fly control remote monitoring system which takes a high-resolution image of the entire sticky board daily or on demand. 

The flyDetect® also has an alert system, which sends notifications to the dedicated app when a fly capture threshold is reached. Capture thresholds can be tailored to the sensitivity of the situation in which the flyDetect® is being used and their alerts are based on a traffic light system of green, amber and red.

In February this year, flyDetect® was placed into a Sheffield hospital as a field test. Gary Scatchard, the account manager who installed the trap and monitored it over three months commented:

"The benefit to the pest control business allows for early identification of potential flying insect problems...this then results in a more proactive pest management system for the client, resulting in a higher quality service, in areas where zero tolerance of insects is required."

He continued, "When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, due to having limited access to areas within the hospital grounds, flyDetect® has helped pest control enormously. These units are allowing us to still monitor sites remotely and, if required, to plan a treatment according to government guidelines and correct working practises during the outbreak."
