What is Dismate?
Dismate is a powerful and professional system for controlling dried fruit moths and flour moths. It has been specifically developed for businesses that produce, process, or store food. It is a sophisticated mating disruption system that uses nature-identical pheromones to combat moth infestation and prevent it sustainably. With Dismate, you have the opportunity to fight moths effectively while maintaining ongoing operations in your facility.

How does Dismate work?
Dismate is delivered in four color-coded dispensers that are hung in the areas of your operation where food is produced, processed, or stored.
These dispensers release nature-identical pheromones over a period of three months, which confuse the male moths and disrupt mating.
As a result, the moth population is gradually reduced. High cleanliness and compliance with food hygiene regulations are crucial for the effective operation of the Dismate system.
Dismate vs. Conventional Moth Control
Advantages of Dismate
Dismate uses nature-identical pheromones to combat moths, making it an environmentally friendlier option.
Since Dismate can be used during normal operations, it leads to no downtime in production.
With continuous use, Dismate sustainably reduces the moth population and prevents reinfestation.
Certified for Organic Food Operations:
Dismate can be used without concerns in organic operations.
It can be more cost-effective than traditional methods, as there are no additional costs for downtime or repeated treatments.
Dismate dispensers need to be replaced every three months.
For Dismate to be effective, a high level of cleanliness and compliance with food hygiene regulations is necessary.
Time Until Effective:
Dismate takes several weeks or months to show full effect. Immediate results, as provided by conventional methods, should not be expected.
Advantages of Conventional Moth Control
These methods can have an immediate impact on the existing moth population.
Disadvantages of Conventional Moth Control
These methods may use environmentally harmful chemicals.
These methods can lead to operational downtime since treated areas may not be accessible for a certain period.
No Long-Term Solution:
They only combat the current moth population but do not prevent new moths from entering the building.
They can be expensive, especially if they need to be applied repeatedly.
The chemicals used can pose health risks to employees and customers.
