The CatchData Methodology
CatchData is a multi-purpose scientific monitoring system that we apply to each of our wildlife management services. Every application records time intervals, location, control strategy and catch count. This species-specific current data allows the team to constantly improve and optimize our services, prove our models, and assure and empower our clients.
As Humane Solutions values social and environmental sustainability at large, this data not only scientifically contributes on a localized scale but can be used for research collaboration, the evaluation of alternative management systems within the pest control industry, and challenging policies for improved application.
How we save you money.
Because we’re always recording catches and other data, we can provide your detailed CatchData reports which not only show exactly how your money has been spent thus far, but also recommendations to cut costs in the future.
How we stay transparent.
We report to you exactly what we see on the ground, then we work together to plan for the future. You have full knowledge of the efficacy of your program, and we might even get to the point where your program is no longer necessary!
You don’t get that with poison.
How we’re innovating.
CatchData is more than just accurate data collection and reporting, as the fundamentals behind it are elementary and standard. CatchData is a standard of science and sustainability we apply to every service, if innovation is required, we rise to the challenge! The methodology itself is innovative, and we have various technologies under development that should automate the CatchData processes, and displace inhumane, ineffective products and services.
Why it is important.
Wildlife and pest control industries are intrinsically connected to the local and greater ecosystems, and even the biosphere as a whole. In a world struggling between unsustainable vs sustainable practices, and while some industries are resisting more than others, progress is being made across the board. This industry is one that refuses to progress. Billions of dollars are invested into rodenticides and pesticides. Research is funded by pest control corporations, policies are informed by it, and real research is impossible because poison literally blankets the planet, and it kills off-site.
We are working on rodent control technology to improve upon humane trapping standards, increase efficacy, and automate our CatchData processes. Innovative, adaptable, and sustainable, this might be the alternative the world needs to finally leave rodenticide behind.
More to come…
