Dr. Reckhaus® – great effect with great respect

The first control neutral insect repellent of the world: Dr. Reckhaus®, our new range of insect control with compensation areas, awarded as the world's first brand with the quality label INSECT RESPECT®. This will ensure that an insect-friendly designed compensation area is created for the insects combated by a product.

All Dr. Reckhaus products are branded with the Insect Respect Label. That is to say: A compensation for the insect loss that is caused by it's application is created previously to the buying, in the form of insect paradises (see compensation model).


Dr. Reckhaus products are standing for insect repellent in the interior with highest ecological demands: reducing or avoiding the use of biocide, and then only with compensation. The quality label INSECT RESPECT® offers one solution in which the consequences of use of biocidal products are compensated. The Dr. Reckhaus Fly Trap beared the label as the world's first product, and thus compensates the insect loss as a result of use by the consumers in advance.
The consumers awareness of the value of insects will be strengthened through design and packaging design. For all the products of the brand "Dr. Reckhaus" applies:

- control neutral: in the run-up the creation of an insect friendly habitat already compensated the theoretical damage through the application (patented, quality label INSECT RESPECT®)

- renunciation of insecticidal active substances

- all materials are purchased in Germany and Switzerland, the products are manufactured in Bielefeld.

The products have a two-stage packaging in order to clarify both ecological aspects as well as the control aspect for the consumer:
- color signal: indicates the effectiveness of the product                                      - White/green: respect for insects (control neutral)

The combination of effectiveness and insect repellent can also be found in the slogan "Great effect with great respect". Each product shows the actual compensation area of the individual product based on a photo and provides information about the value of insects. On the website www.insect-respect.org consumers will find among others an animated film of the value of insects, free services for insects determination and more than 100 insect fact sheets for more information.
