Know now. Act early.

We take the guess-work out of pest management.

What is RapidAIM?

RapidAIM leverages the very latest in Internet of Things sensor technology to help you take the guess-work out of pest management. We provide real-time information of fruit fly pest detection in your orchards & farms. Watch these short explainer videos to learn more:

The RapidAIM difference

No other pest data service can deliver real-time data with low power and low cost. No cameras, no bulky equipment, no complicated software. RapidAIM is scalable for high resolution detection, orchard-wide and area-wide.

See pest locations

Detection data shown across your farm – make your control count where it is needed.

Know when pests arrive

Get real-time alerts of pest detection on your device, anywhere, anytime.

Freedom to move

Our sensors are small and easy to move, from crop to crop, season to season.

Easy & affordable

Hassle-free subscription service that is price-point competitive with manual monitoring and delivers better value.

Why we do it

We take the guesswork out of pest management with our fruit fly detection and monitoring data products.

Fruit fly is the biggest biosecurity problem globally and costs growers and governments billions each year in control, monitoring and lost production.

Globally 100,000 tons of insecticide is used each year – the vast majority never makes it to the intended target. Why? Insects pest are very small and very mobile, making detection and control a guessing game!

How we do it

We have developed world-first IoT sensor technology that detects unique behaviours of insects. Just like a fingerprint can unlock your phone, an insect can “unlock” a RapidAIM sensor. The location of the insect is then logged in real-time!

Pest detection is reported to you via alerts and farm maps through a simple to use interface in the RapidAIM Mobile App.

Our sensors are placed inside traps that can be hung anywhere in an orchard. They do not require solar panels or complicated installation. They are ultra-low power and provide detection data season round.

Our service

We offer pest location information on a subscription basis, similar to a mobile phone plan. Trap sensors provide data to you for the duration of your data plan to deliver pest information to you worry free.

Included in your subscription is access to the RapidAIM mobile app and smart traps.
