Insects can be pests of agriculture, forestry and horticulture in their own right. They can also be vectors of disease. Controlling them is important for these industries but safer and effective alternatives to toxic pesticides are sought.
A UK-based SME specialises in a nature based approach to insect pest management using the natural behaviour of pests, the right pheromone combination and trapping to target specific pest species while not damaging the wider ecosystem.
In order to produce their unique systems the UK SME is looking for chemical manufacturers and suppliers able to produce or supply Trimedlure (1,1-Dimethylethyl-4 (or 5)-chloro-methylcyclohexanecarboxylate). It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of either a manufacturing agreement or a supplier agreement dependent on the circumstances of the partner. A manufacturing agreement with chemical manufacturers is preferred.
