Spotta Smart Pest Systems, an insect monitoring system that provides an early warning of bed bugs, has signed three new agreements with companies in the U.S. and U.K. to expand its global reach.
In the U.S., Spotta has reached an agreement with Plaistow, N.H.-based Pest-End Exterminators and Colorado Tri-Flo Systems, based in Mead, Colo.
Pest-End will incorporate Spotta as a part of its integrated pest management (IPM) solution offering. The company provides pest control services at residential and commercial properties in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. Colorado Tri-Flo will offer Spotta’s always-on monitoring technology alongside its own industrial heaters for treating bed bugs.
Spotta’s third recent agreement is with Amicus Environmental Services in the U.K. The company plans to utilize Spotta’s technology to deliver solutions to the pest control market.
According to a news release, the new partnerships will center on Spotta’s monitoring solution for the accommodation sector, which detects bed bugs in hotels, motels, hostels, student residences, care homes and other multi-room accommodation businesses. The company’s will assist customers in their region with installation and servicing, training and ongoing customer support.
“Each partner company shares our belief that technology can help the pest control industry work in a more proactive way,” said Robert Fryers, CEO of Spotta. “Monitoring leads to early detection, and early detection of pests leads to more effective treatment and the opportunity to reduce pesticide use.”
