    Context

  • Insect Trapping Surface that Treats Infestations without Toxic Pesticides

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: This insect trapping surface is embedded with microscopic hooks of various sizes that will trap bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) by impaling their legs. Despite aggressive pest control efforts bed bug infestation rates have dramatically increased since the 1980s and infestations are particularly difficult to control in densely populated urban areas. Available bed bug control techniques involve localized insecticide fumigation or introducing a fungus (Beauveria bassiana) lethal to the bed bug.

  • A copper-resistant fengycin-hyperproducer Bacillus mojavensis strain for protection against plant pathogens its application and the products made from it

    Type: 
    Product

    The use of effective pesticides to protect plants against pathogens forms an integral part of the technologies available for intensive vegetable production. Generally effective fungicides are applied in the intensively cultivated plant production to control diseases caused by pathogenic fungi. However these fungicides are not permitted for use in organic farming – with the exception of inorganic preparations containing copper.

  • Microfabricated Surfaces For The Physical Capture Of Bed Bugs And Other Insects

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: Bed bugs have made a dramatic comeback in recent years infesting everything from homes and hotels to schools movie theaters and hospitals. Current forms of treatment (e.g. heat cold vacuuming and pesticides) tend to be costly tedious and unreliable. Hiring a professional can be expensive and unfortunately many bed bug sufferers resort to ineffective potentially dangerous measures. Technology Description: Researchers at the University of California and the University of Kentucky have developed a concept for the physical capture of bed bugs using microfabricated surfaces.
