Alphitobius diaperinus © Shutterstock Another pest we would like to introduce is the litter beetle (Alphitobius diaperinus). For people who do not work on poultry farms, this may sound like a harmless beetle, but it can cause a great deal of damage in said farms and even be harmful to human health. Benefits and advantages To begin with, we would like to take a quick detour and look at the exciting benefits of the litter beetle. The larvae of these beetles can be a nutritious snack. Yes, you read that right. The so-called ‘buffalo worms’ have a high protein content […]
Poultry Red Mite ©Shutterstock/Martin Pelanek This arachnid is a vector pest and a worldwide problem. For example, in egg and meat production or any poultry farming, one has to fight again and again with this mite species. Among other things, they worsen the feed conversion ratio, laying performance and/or egg quality. In this report we describe the red poultry mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) in more detail and also explain how it can be avoided and controlled. Dangers and economic damage A mite infestation, for example in laying hens, can cause stress in the affected animals and therefore has a strong […]
Mediterranean flour moth ©Shutterstock/Jurik Peter Moths are the black sheep among the butterflies. Some species are simply annoying when they fly into our home as they are attracted by artificial light and flutter around nervously. But other species are harmful and either cause holes in our clothes or contaminate and spoil our food, which must be disposed of immediately. But even if you might not believe it at first glance, these insects also have their special role in the ecosystem. Benefits of moths Moths are a good food source for a variety of animals, such as other insects, spiders, frogs, […]
Cross Spider ©Pixabay/Ben_Kerckx Just hearing the word “spider” makes many of us flinch. Although these insects are not pests but are themselves exterminators of pests and can therefore be seen as natural pest controller, some are quite scared of them and start screeching or run away in panic when they see a spider or if one comes too close. Yes, for most people they are not beautiful to look at, but these arachnids are as important to nature and the environment as any other. And if the fear is not too great, it is also worth catching an invading spider […]
Black garden ants ©Pixabay/SandeepHanda You can’t look that fast, and ants are already present and visit us at the family celebration on the terrace or fight their way into the kitchen. Ants are an integral part of nature, and like almost all insects, they are a crucial part of the ecosystem, which would collapse without them. They undertake lots of essential tasks and we humans should be grateful to them and, if possible, let them live. The benefits of ants Among others, ants are irreplaceable for nature for the following reasons: They not only eat other insects and pests but […]
Our Brand and Trademark needs to live in the present while transmitting the values and held promises to the future. Bio Kill’s appearance hasn’t adapted since the 90’s while purchase behaviour has changed. Due to these changes, Bio Kill was challenged to evolve without losing its identity, legal security and connection to the large and very loyal clientele. F. Lima, located in Portugal, which has the highest per Capita sales of all our partners, redesigned in cooperation with Jesmond, the Bio Kill appearance and launched the new bottle design shortly after the Covid-19 restrictions began to loosen. Jesmond is proud […]

Flesh fly ©Pixabay/Carola68 No one is happy when they suddenly hear the buzzing of a fly in their home. “These insects are annoying and disgusting!” Everyone thinks they are just sitting to feed on excrements and carcasses and are useless. But the opposite is true! In this article, we would like to enlighten the fly from a different angle. The fly is indeed a valuable part to the ecosystem and should be valued accordingly. The benefits of flies Flies can be real pests and undoubtedly annoying, but like most other insects, they provide benefits and have a role in the […]
Ixodes Ricinus lurking for a host with clawed limbs streched outwards ©Pixabay/Erik_Karits Every year anew these insects bother us, bite our dear pets or even ourselves. And since ticks transmit dangerous pathogens, many of us are also vaccinated against the communicable diseases that these crawling animals can carry. But why we cannot simply eradicate them and how to best protect ourselves against them is explained in this interesting article. The benefits of ticks We would love to waive without these arachnids, but they are essential for the balance of nature and our ecosystem. You just have to look at their […]
With these impressions from a few home-office desks, the entire Jesmond Team wishes Happy Easter! #workfromhome #homeoffice #staysafe #biocides #pestcontrol
Blattella Germanica ©Pixabay/Erik_Karits For some, the very thought on cockroaches is enough to make one’s skin crawl. These insects, which inhabit our planet for some hundreds of millions of years, are considered a plague that is difficult to treat and cure in many regions around the globe. In some cultures, however, they are also valued as a high-protein food and are even used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). We have taken a closer look at these crawling Blattodea, researched interesting facts and describe how to best prevent an infestation. What are the benefits of cockroaches? Cockroaches are a good source […]
No matter the time of the year, bedbugs can always be a nuisance. Especially when travelling they are often “transported” back and forth without us being aware of it. Therefore, it is especially important to be prepared and to recognize early when bedbugs are about to settle in your own home. Bedbugs then and now The small bugs were a very common pest in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century but were virtually exterminated shortly after the Second World War by the widespread use of synthetic insecticides. For nearly five decades, bedbugs were found only sporadically […]

Mosquitoes are very small, but not to be underestimated. They cause great damage worldwide, because the viruses and diseases they spread cause thousands of deaths of humans every year. It is therefore important for us to take a closer look at these insects and explain how to protect yourself against them. What are the benefits of mosquitoes? We find mosquitoes annoying and disruptive, but these bloodsuckers play an important role in the ecosystem and even for human health. Mosquitoes are an important source of food for many creatures, such as birds, spiders and fish. Every bite of these insects also […]
After we have already published an article about wasps, we don’t want to neglect the bees and dedicate a new report to them as well. Nowadays, bees and their services for natural diversity and the ecosystem are on everyone’s lips. In short: without these enchanting creatures, we humans would have a big problem. In the following feature, we will focus on the bees and highlight how diligent and fascinating these workers are. Honeybees can even dance! How bees contribute to a functioning ecosystem? The world of flowering plants has developed for many thousands of years together with pollinating insects, so […]
Nowadays wasps and hornets (Vespidae) and bees (Anthophila) are much feared. Wasps and hornets cause an even greater fear in humans than bees, even though all these insects are basically peaceful creatures. We should learn to understand them and how to behave in their presence in order to protect them because they do far more than we think and are essential for our ecosystem. In the following summary we would like to introduce the wasp, how to recognize it, what it is good for and how to prevent a wasp nest in your own house or living area. What are […]
“… study finds nine in 10 insects analysed from English hospitals were carrying potentially harmful bacteria – over half of which were antibiotic-resistant …“ A very interesting article, spearheaded by Killgerm, which shows that proactive and effective pest control in healthcare environments is extremely important.
We all know and accept that insects are an essential part of the biodiversity and with it our well-being. We, therefore, have to respect their living space while protecting our own homes. Specialists like us promote to prevent an infestation before having to deal and cure it. Prevention is more economical, less invasive and therefore ecological sensible to protect your home from dangerous and damaging insect pests including those which are known to transmit harmful diseases. On this tune, we wish you a good summer and make it an enjoyable one. (NPMA – National Pest Management Association: https://www.pestworld.org/world-pest-day/)

Bioveta promotes BioKill in Pet Shops against fleas: Their approach is to sell it as a duo packet with a one drop product. The idea is to explain that the treatment on the animal resolves only 20% of the problem and needs to be reinforced by applying BioKill around and on the area where the pet is sleeping. Like this the problem is not only better under control but also has a preventive character. Open file here: Flyer Bioveta BioKill

More and more diseases are spread through insects all over the world. Mosquito species appear in countries they never been sighted before. It, therefore, gets more critical to protect us against this plague every day by switching to preventive insecticides such as Bio Kill and Clean Kill. ProMED-mail provides the most significant information for you on a daily basis which and where diseases emerge on the globe. https://www.promedmail.org/ It’s not a question any longer that these diseases and virus carrying mosquitoes will move into Europe, the only question remaining is when it reaches your very own home!

Approved register! Yes that’s right! The National Agency for Foods, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) registration in Nigeria has finally come through! We are stoked by this achievement as it is by far the most challenging step within the process of registering products in a new country.
