Company Profile

ISCA Technologies, Inc. (Riverside, CA) is a successful, privately owned corporation whose mission is to protect the world from damaging insects and disease causing pathogens by developing tools and solutions that are economical, effective, and ecologically friendly. Its product range comprises more than 300 species-specific insect lures (made with nature identical semiochemicals such as pheromones and natural attractants), more than 20 different types of insect traps, proprietary semiochemical controlled release technologies such as flowable monolithic formulations, like SPLAT, and a range of novel pest management tools (such as smart traps that autonomously detect and identify mosquitoes, and bio-functionalized nanosensors for the detection of plant pathogens). ISCA Tech is in the leading edge of the development of effective, affordable, and safe semiochemical solutions. To effectively control vectors of disease, try ISCA's sprayable long lasting mosquito attract and kill, Vectrax for adults and SPLAT BAC for larvae--targeting mosquitoes like Aedes aegypti (Zika, Dengue), Culex (WNV) and Anopheles (Malaria). To effectively control agricultural pests with no conventional pesticides, try SPLAT mating disruption products, or repellent products like SPLAT Verb that protects 100% pine trees against bark beetle attack. To effect control with the least amount of conventional pesticide, try HOOK attract and kill products, or Noctovi to attract and kill invasive noctuids like Helicoverpa armigera.
