Green prevention, or how to protect against pests while controlling its impact on the environment and its health
When we talk about green prevention against pests, we often imagine solutions whose environmental impact is controlled, but would be more or less effective against small beasts and other parasites that can make our nights complicated, (mosquitoes, bedbugs, mites …). Who hasn’t heard before: nothing beats a good insecticidal bomb! Really? And the planet you think about it? What about your health? Have you heard of endocrine disruptors? Chemicals, if they are formidable against insects, are unfortunately also formidable for the environment and health. (1). But rest assured, there are solutions that combine the best of efficiency and whose impact on our health and our beautiful planet is controlled.
Green protection by Breyner
At Breyner, we have had a single watchword since 1998: to implement sustainable solutions against the parasites that poison our lives with the highest efficiency, but respecting what we call the virtuous triangle of green protection.
But let’s not talk technical and get back to the basics. So what is this substance used in our pest protection solutions? Attention drum roll: the Geraniol! This substance found in the essence of rose and palmarosa (a large herbaceous plant that belongs, like lemongrass, to the Poaceae family) is also present in the essential oils of geranium, lemon and lemongrass (2).
Geraniol, a molecule with many advantages
Geraniol is produced by worker bees (Apis mellifera) to locate and communicate with each other. It is the main component of Nasonov’s pheromone (3). We have installed hives next to our R&D site and this one is doing well (4). Well, we’re not going to get into beekeeping professionally, but we’re very proud of our last harvest. Also, we invite you to follow, on our Instagram account, all the adventures of our hives.
Is green prevention curative or preventive ?
Both my captain! We have developed a Greenfirst Protection treatment that is both curative and preventive. How did we do it? It’s simple, nature is our greatest source of inspiration. We used to say that we are inspired by plants. The objective is therefore to sustainably treat textile surfaces and bedding as well as living and community areas with a treatment that effectively fights against mites, mosquitoes or lit bugs. This treatment has the enormous advantage of being based on a non-neurotoxic active substance (5). This means that it does not present a risk of side effects on the human nervous system.
Let’s summarize the benefits of this treatment.
To conclude, let’s keep in mind the main advantages of Greenfirst Protection and stay connected on this blog to learn more about our treatments whose environmental impact is controlled.
