From our OBSERVATIONS on the development of red snout-beetle INFESTATION on palms, which is causing drastic DEVASTATION of these ten-year old ornamental trees, we felt the need to start this project chiefly aimed at ERADICATING the red snout-beetle from palm trees using processes that are ECO-COMPATIBLE with the environment and utilizable in all public and private places.

We set up special treatment systems with industrial use of CONCENTRATED MICROWAVES, which, after various experimental tests (first in the laboratory and then in the field), REVEALED some innovative and EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE aspects of this NEW METHOD to fight and totally eradicate red snout-beetle from palm trees.

The initial project we STUDIED, TESTED and PATENTED was then DEVELOPED in collaboration with Bi.Elle of Modena, who has for more than 20 years focused its business on the research, design and manufacture of microwave devices and systems.

   

The result of this COLLABORATION was the design and manufacture of a first series of innovative PROTOTYPE DEVICES with the aim of fighting and destroying the insect directly on the palm trees, even with tall trunks, and in all the stages of the beetle’s development.

The tests conducted with the first prototype devices, from which we obtained ASTONISHING RESULTS, led us to design the ultimate high-tech device ready to be used in the field.

This system is the first microwave device with MOBILE INDUSTRIAL POWER for disinfestation of vegetating trees, and is fully modular, transportable and fast to install.

   

An IMPORTANT aspect is the ECOLOGICAL method implemented, absolutely alternative to all the chemical disinfestation methods because it DOES NOT USE PHYTOSANITARY PRODUCTS, IT DOES NOT POLLUTE, it does not leave any harmful residue, and it is fast, clean and safe for both the operators and the population.

Another FUNDAMENTAL aspect is the TREATMENT TIME which varies between A FEW MINUTES for the preventive treatment and approximately 1 HOUR for the disposal treatment.

No other disinfestation method achieves such EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS with such short working times, ease of application and CERTAINTY OF THE RESULT.
