Project Overview

The device uses a low voltage electric charge created by a polymer material to attract and trap red mites.

  • New technology, with no competing or similar products
  • Monitor red mite levels for best timing of chemical treatments
  • No negative environmental or health impact
  • Two major studies are conducted to demonstrate the devices effectively reduced the red mite population which led to an immediate increase in egg production and quality:

-established the efficacy of devices

-investigated the relationship between the red mite population and egg production
