Bayer to host virtual stand at PestExtra 2021


Bayer are hosting a 360° virtual stand for PestExtra 2021, our three-day event from the 16-18 March, with a 3D stand that allows you to interact with new products including the Digital Pest Management system.


Tim Peeling, Bayer Environmental Science product manager, says they are excited to showcase their new Digital Pest Management system at this event and what it can offer the pest control sector.

He adds that there is also the opportunity to enter a fun, short quiz to win an iPad mini when visiting their virtual stand – locate and click on the white rat to participate.

“A lot has changed in 12 months, but it’s great that events are back on the calendar again and we can share our latest developments with pest controllers, albeit very different circumstances,” says Tim.

Digital Pest Management

Bayers says that Digital Pest Management is an exciting new proposition for the pest control sector, as this new innovative solution will allow pest managers to take rodent control to the next level.

“Our Digital Pest Management system offers 24/7 monitoring of all traps, real-time capture alerts and is capable of digital reporting, helping to improve the traceability and transparency of rodent control.

“This system is a time saver for pest managers and can really help improve the efficiency of pest control,” says Tim.

Gary Nicholas, Digital Pest Management product manager will explain the full extent of how this solution can support pest and facility managers in his seminar in the Innovation Theatre which is at 10am on Tuesday the 16 March.

Mental health in pest control

Bayer is very passionate about raising the profile of mental wellbeing within the pest control sector and has partnered with CALM, a charity that offers mental health support.

“PestExtra is the perfect platform to help promote mental health in the sector, so a representative from CALM will be speaking at the event and will explain what CALM is, what they do and the importance of charities such as themselves,” says Tim.
