A sign of respect towards insects.
INSECT RESPECT® is the first quality mark worldwide for control-neutral insect repellents. It is exclusively awarded to products for indoor spaces, the manufacturers of which create a compensation in outdoor areas that is appropriate for the species of the controlled insects. Not just the respect for insects - anchored in our five guiding principles - is unique. INSECT RESPECT® also takes a new path with the implementation: The compensation will not only become possible through the sale of the products, but is ensured from the start with their production already. The consumers thereby are granted full warranty that control and safekeeping are in balance.
The Insect Respect philosophy
We respect insects as creatures which have a high value for us and our Ecosystem.
We assert that insects can affect us and our environment and sometimes we have to eradicate them.
We are pro-active in dealing with the losses of insects caused by our control products.
We are strengthening the procedures for consumers and manufacturers with regards to dealing with insect repellents.
We create insect-friendly habitats in order to compensate for what is extracted from nature.
We promote biodiversity of residential areas by creating close to nature compensation areas.
We strive to the highest possible environmental sustainability of biocidal products on the principle of reduce, recycle and compensate.
We invest in the exploration of insects and ecological insect repellents.
We develop marketable products, that differentiate through a sustainable orientation in the competition.
We are committed to include our ecological activities used in social projects.
Respectful handling on 3 levels
From this philosophy, the following guiding principles for insect control in houses can be derived for INSECT RESPECT:
1. Reduce: Create awareness for the value of insects and thus less and only specific insect control.
2. Improve ecologically: Insecticide free solutions with preferably environmentally friendly components.
3. Compensate: When insect control appears to be indicated, insect friendly compensation areas are created.
