Bug Vacuum

The use of bug vacuums and research conducted on the optimization of these for lygus bug management has improved the efficiency of these machines from 2-3% to over 15% uptake.

Optimization of these bug vacuums, including the addition of front plates, identification of the ideal ground and wind speed has led to widespread adoption for lygus control, reducing insecticide applications industry-wide.
