Where in retail does "every fly count"?
The following brands already use the Insect Respect quality mark:
The ROSSMANN brand RUBIN supports the "Insect Respect" initiative. Insect Respect is the world's first seal of approval for a new approach to insects and their control in the home: the seal promotes awareness of insects and biodiversity in our everyday lives and creates ecological compensation for the damage caused by insect repellents indoors.
The label on the ROSSMANN RUBIN brand supports this compensation. You will find the label on the RUBIN fruit fly trap, the yellow trap, the food moth trap and the clothing and textile moth trap.
In 2018 Insect Respect started a new cooperation to prevent insect control: ALUKON insect control products are free from insecticides and a good choice to keep insects outdoors even with open windows.
ALUKON works together with Insect Respect to contribute to insect diversity conservation and to actively support it. Insect Respect compensates the missing habitats or the insect control with insect-friendly extensive greened flat roofs in settlement or industrial areas. As part of their joint project ALUKON will create an ecologically planted flat roof on their new building in Haigerloch. This way the company supports Insect Respect protecting the six-leggers.
The ALDI SÜD business group is the first food retailer to offer a product with the Insect Respect quality mark. Insect Respect compensates for the insect loss caused by the use of the product by creating new habitats for insects. Since 12 March this year, an insecticide-free glue trap is available. On April, 16th 2018 a pheromone trap was introduced in ALDI shops. Since 17 May 2018, the retailer has been selling a midge candle with INSECT RESPECT label. In summer 2018, ALDI SÜD will launch further products with the quality mark Insect Respect.
dm Profissimo nature
Since May 2017, the drugstore chain dm offers three products of the dm brand Profissimo nature with the Insect Respect quality seal. They are free from insecticide-free. The effectiveness has been proved by an independent test institute. Insect Respect guarantees the compensation of the insect loss that results from the product use. For the purpose of transparency, every package shows a picture of the compensation area that has been created as a biotope for the product. The three products serve to identify an infestation of different house insects: Food moth monitor, clothes moth monitor and fruit flies monitor. Consumers get comprehensive information about insects and tips for the prevention with the folding package.
Right on time for the International Day for Biological Diversity on May, 22nd 2018 the drug store chain dm introduced products with Insect Respect label in all dm branches in Austria.

True to the motto «Don't trust a product that doesn't warn about itself» the company Reckhaus equipped its trusted core brand recozit in 2019 not only with the Insect Respect quality seal but also with the warning notice «Tötet wertvolle Insekten» (Kills valuable insects). Thanks to close partnerships with many retailers recozit has been a leading specialised trade brand in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The specialist shops stand for high product quality and exceptional consultation. «We are convinced that the shop owners and their employees are especially good in increasing the customers' awareness of the value of insects in a one-to-one conversation. This, once again, reveals the unique value of specialised shops», says Dr. Hans-Dietrich Reckhaus.
