The software for integrated pest management

The market need

Because of the reasons listed below urban pest control operators have to move from easy to apply carpet bombing to more complex integrated pest management approaches:

  • Increased risk due to climate change and (more importantly) the increased transport of people and goods
  • Increased environmental awareness
  • Increased regulatory pressure
  • Increased resistance of pests against chemicals

Our solution

Avia-GIS developed high quality software for the area-wide risk mapping of vector-borne diseases. To respond to the market need, we are currently developing SMARTSENZ®, a software package to support integrated pest management of urban pests. As part of this development we are expanding our software tools:
  • from area-wide risk mapping to urban risk mapping
  • from disease vectors to all urban pests
  • from mapping risk to also include risk management
  • from outdoors to indoors

Living labs

SMARTSENZ® is currently under development with support from the SME Instrument Program from the European Commission. Our innovative concepts are tested in a series of living labs:

  • In France with our partner EDIALUX France: in an urban context, in the agro-food industry, in hospitals and in social housing.
  • In South Africa with Avia-GIS RSA, our local daughter pest-control company: in the hospitality industry.
