PestConnect is a system of devices that detect, capture or humanely kill a variety of pests using traps, bait stations and monitoring units. These devices have been developed using unique capabilities in research into pest behaviour and product development at Rentokil’s Global Technical Centre:

  • The devices have infrared sensors that can detect a pest and activate a trap or allow access to bait.
  • They then send their activation data to a database on the Rentokil server, and automatically trigger alerts to Rentokil technicians (exterminators) and customers via a dedicated wireless network or a GSM mobile network.
  • It is integrated with Rentokil’s customer portal, myRentokil, the industry’s leading online reporting and analysis system.
