Total protection against insect pests

When it comes to public health or your surroundings, this innovate product offers a long term alternative to pest control.

Are you sick and tired of waging a war against ants, mosquitos, cockroaches and other bothersome insects? The solution lies in a product that was recently launched in Namibia.

Inesfly makes quick work of mosquitoes, flies, bedbugs, beetles, flees, mites, sand flies, spiders, bed bugs and the like.

Just consider how many diseases are spread by mosquitos: Malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis and yellow fever, not to mention cholera and salmonella that is spread by flies and cockroaches. If you operate in agriculture, you will know how insect-borne diseases can affect animals (think blue tongue and sleeping sickness), while all kinds of insects that can literally eat away at your crops.

Once again, Inesfly has a solution.

What makes Inesfly products unique, is that they are effective up for up to two years, work in all stages of an insect’s life cycle and are safe for both humans and animals. And they have published scientific studies to prove it.

How does it work?

Inesfly products use an innovative technology that incorporates different active ingredients (natural products, biocides and more) into a polymeric microcapsule. This technology:

• Allows the insecticides to be released in a gradual manner, prolonging the active duration of the ingredients for up to two years, whilst being harmless for people and pets.

• Contains three active ingredients, thereby tackling the resistance of some insects to certain insecticides.

• Attacks the full life cycle of the insect – from the egg, larvae, to the adult stage – thanks to Insect Growth Regulators (IGR).

• Protects the active ingredients against external factors such as weather and wear.

The Inesfly action plan uses an integrated approach: First they analyse each situation to execute the project, then provide specific solutions to your infestation issue, and finally, they monitor and evaluate the results. This allows them to continually improve their products.

Home and hospitality

There are few pests as annoying as flies, especially if there are larger numbers of them. Flies also carry and spread diseases like cholera and salmonella which causes food poisoning.

Except for the irritation value that flies and mosquitoes carry in your home, any kind of insect infestation can seriously harm a hospitality establishment’s reputation.

Proactive and preventive pest control is important for your home, but more so for hotels and restaurants. Not only are these areas more vulnerable to pest threats, it can have a major impact on the reputation of your establishment. There is no bigger deterrent for potential customers than the sight of insects around food or in their bed- and bathrooms. Your restaurant, bar, cafe, take-away or kiosk can be insect-free with Inesfly insect control products that protect your business from insects for a period of up to two years, while being safe for humans and pets.

The Inesfly SP Coating has been applied to various restaurants in Windhoek with severe cockroach infestations with astounding results.

Agricultural applications

Insects have a direct impact on crop production because they chew away the leaves, suck out plant juices, bore within the roots, stems or leaves, and spread plant pathogens. They feed on natural fibres, destroy wooden building material, ruin stored grain, and accelerate the process of decay.

In livestock farms, diseases transmitted by insects not only affect animal welfare, but production too and consequently it represents a serious problem. Pests also have a profound impact on the health of humans and domestic animals by causing annoyance, inflicting bites and stings, and transmitting disease.

Since appropriate pest control can improve both productivity and product quality, Inesfly has developed products that control these pests on animals as well as in fields, post-harvest and during transport

Product range

• Indoor and outdoor water-based paint that can be used on all surfaces where there is a high level of insect infestation.

• A water-based biopolymer coating with microencapsulated insecticidal, acaricidal and insect growth regulators.

• A floor cleaner that contains microencapsulated active ingredients for the control of crawling insects (cockroaches, ants, fleas) on surfaces where the product is applied.

• A body product that repels flies and mosquitoes offering protection for a period of up to 6 hours.

All Inesfly products use the micro-encapsulation technology, which is the key element that gives the products their special characteristics. After application, the solvent (water) evaporates and the active ingredients migrate towards the surface, where they are released to the environment in a controlled and gradual manner, therefore prolonging the active duration of the ingredients whilst remaining fully harmless to humans. Release of the active ingredients is mainly due to temperature (heat) and wear.

Safety

World Health Organisation guidelines are used in respect to the types and percentages of active ingredients in the composition of Inesfly products. Thanks to the low concentration of the active ingredients, the absence of organic solvents, the controlled and gradual release of the active ingredients, and the low application frequency, the products are safe for humans and animals,

Inesfly is certified safe for kitchens, butcheries, bakeries, etc. by the local equivalent of what Namibia calls HACCP.

Development

The Inesfly technology was developed by its founder and renowned Spanish scientist, Dr Pilar Mateo.

Inesfly Africa was established in Ghana in 2011, while the parent company – Inesfly Corporation – is based in Valencia, Spain. Ghana was seen as the gateway into Africa to introduce the technology which has been tested and approved in over 53 countries around the world. In 2015, Inesfly Africa opened the state of the art factory in Ghana, from where their range of products that span across the agricultural, public health and hospitality sectors, is distributed.

Apart from Namibia and Ghana, Inesfly paint has also been used successfully in Bolivia, Mexico, Brazil, Benin, Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, Germany, China and Spain.
