About Insects Limited

Established in 1982, Insects Limited researches, tests, develops, manufactures and distributes quality pheromones and trapping systems for stored product insects throughout North America and in more than 60 countries worldwide.

Before the U.S. methyl bromide phaseout began in 2005, Mueller and his team worked tirelessly to find alternatives, so that food commodities could be protected for public health. This now-retired businessman, entomologist and Eagle Scout spent his career looking at ways to provide successful pest management and prevention with fewer chemicals.

Today, the company continues to specialize in a niche of pest control that has developed into a business that provides products and services that are mainstream in protecting stored food, grain, museum collections, tobacco, and fiber worldwide.
