The acquisition is a strategic element in the Anticimex commitment to digital pest control solutions.

We’ve enjoyed a lengthy collaboration with WiseCon, which has the best expertise in the world regarding the development of products for digital pest control. This investment will enable Anticimex to offer the best solutions in electronic rat traps and monitoring systems and to develop other unique digital offers in a wide range of pest control applications for our global market”, says Olof Sand, President and CEO of Anticimex.

“In our view, digital control of rodent pests is one of the most significant changes in the industry since the introduction of traditional rat poisons. Digital solutions allow us to improve communication, documentation and preventive protection for our customers but above all they’re environmentally friendly”, says Bo Petersen, VP Central Europe.
