The technology is a prototype capable of performing diverse/several actions for organisms control or management by distributing several mortality factors in a proper spatial sequence and intensity versus vectors and weeds. We suggest the applications of such a technology in agricultural, urban, and natural environments for Integrated Plant Production, Integrated Pest Management, Alien or Invasive or Quarantine organisms control, and plant biomass management. The good of the technology we propose is the overcoming the many constraints posed by conventional methods with the respect of humans and habitats security

Technical features

The technology overrides many of the constraints arising from the respect needed to human health and environmental safety. The machinery is comparatively cheap to buy and manage, affordable and simple in maintenance, small and light-weighted enough to be profitable in the real world. We suggest to use the technology in professional, prosumer, and consumer applications either in urban and Integrated Farming to effectively manage pests even in extreme closeness to humans and their activities. The technology is fully compliant with the rules of IPM and Organic application, giving further support for plant biomasses management. Next generation formulates and classes of insecticide will be used into the technology with any changes, just tuning and triggering the intensity of the control action depending on the requested effectiveness.

Possible Applications

  • Professional, prosumer or consumer-ready machinery;
  • Public and private areas management;
  • Care of urban greeneries;
  • Alien, invasive or quarantine also urban & anthropophilic pest management;
  • Agricultural & urban plant biomasses management;
  • Integrate Farming & IPM.


  • Effective full integration among control means;
  • Low-impact and sustainable use of control means;
  • Small carbon footprint and negligible soil disturb;
  • Single-pass vector, pest, and plant biomass management;
  • Vectors and urban pest management by IPM or Organic management.
