AgriSolar Insect Solutions, LLC.
AgriSolar Insect Solutions, ("ASIS") primary asset are patented products, proprietary green technology already proven highly effective as an insect control solution, disruptive technology to the $12 Billion toxic chemical insecticide industry used in the vast $4,249 Trillion fundamental global agriculture markets. Traditional farms spend on average $13.00 per acre per month on chemical insecticides, organic farm operations require as much as $40.00 for bio-insecticides to protect their crops. In sharp contrast, our product expense averages less than $5.00 per acre, yielding a 61% to 88% saving respectively.
Human health and environmental expense from chemical insecticide use in the United States alone is estimated at $9.6 Billion, yet the chemical insecticide industry sales are forecasted to reach $52 Billion by 2019. Agriculture crop production is estimated to increase by 60% over the next 40 years. The $5 Trillion value of the world’s agricultural land is equivalent to only 7% to 10% of the value of global equity markets, yet is feeding over 6 billion people, increasing 50% by 2050.
Formal tests of ASIS products have been conducted with multiple universities, government agencies and private organization. Additionally, more than 6,000 units were tested during the past 3 years in over 240 individual farms cultivating and producing a variety of vegetables, grains and citrus products. Each independent test has uniformly suggested that the “density of harmful insects” was reduced by as much as 80%-90%. In other tests, the use of chemical insecticides was reduced by as much as 75%, the effectiveness and economics of the Company’s product is unquestionably.
Over 100,000 solar-powered insect traps have been installed primarily In S.E. Asia with smaller quantities installed in the United States and the European Union.
In July of 2013, chemical insecticides were found in school meals at the largest school feeding program in the world involving 120 million children. Children began to fall ill within minutes of eating the free dish, at least 23 children died after vomiting and convulsing from agonizing stomach cramps. Death came so quickly for some that they died in their parents' arms while being taken to hospital. The World Health Organization estimates that over 3 million insecticide poisonings occur annually causing 220,000 deaths.
The current cycle of our global ecology is changing the rhythms of climate and our natural resources that all living things rely upon. Potential solutions for alternatives insecticides have been marginalized for decades by large monopolies that use and provide these synthetic chemicals. ASIS products are a proven alternative to toxic chemical insecticides.
The science of the technology is “light refraction”, where engineered phosphorous powders developed at a prominent organic research facility create light frequencies within a proprietary light source. Powered by solar energy stored in a battery that electrically charges the phosphorous powders create these specific light frequencies which attracts harmful insects within a 10-15 acre radius. Approximately 90% of harmful insects in close proximity to the light are stunned by a separate and different frequency, fall into the receptor (see photo above) and die. The circuitry in the battery is adjusted to time zones causing the product to turn on and off automatically for 6 hours during twilight hours when harmful insect are active avoiding beneficial, pollinating insect during day-time periods. The product has been designed to be impervious to most weather conditions and recent enhancements including lithium battery's and upgraded solar panels cause a useful life of 10-15 years. The products is elegantly designed to be self-sufficient and care-free.

This is what people are saying about our products.
“I was not only amazed at the quantity and variety of insects this system caught, but at the applications it now opened up to insect control management and study. It allows one to ID insect populations and infestation daily, weekly, monthly, etc. It is a tool long needed and with exponential value to organic growers.” – John Texiera, San Joaquin Valley grower and past Board Member of the CCOF (“California Certified Organic Farmers”).
“Our farm experienced 90% reduction of caterpillar infestation – an enormous and overwhelming experience!” – Jerry Emery, Emery Berry Patch, New Egypt, NJ
“We have field tested units with positive results and look forward to introducing AgriSolar products to the San Joaquin Valley.” – Larry Rompai, Agri-Valley Irrigation, Fresno, CA
“When I was first introduced to this technology I was intrigued with the idea of a totally passive system, free of chemicals. Within the first half hour of the light turning on, I was amazed at the variety and how many insects were being captured. There is nothing to compare it to; this technology really works!” – Adam Nolte, Nolte Family Farms, Central Pointe, OR
“… very surprised by the amount and variety of insects killed in our vineyard with the AgriSolar products.” – Dave DeMarsico, Renault Winery, Egg Harbor, NJ
“When I checked the AgriSolar system on the first morning, I was amazed at the number of flying bugs killed in just one night. This system greatly reduces the Larva population in the grass, producing a healthier, greener Golf Course for our members.” -- Mario Lopez, Director of Golf Maintenance, Palm Desert Greens Country Club, Palm Desert, CA.
ASIS current initiative is to enlarge manufacturing for products designed specifically for the Organic Farm industry in the United States. The Company currently has a warehouse in Houston Texas where it has limited manufacturing capabilities. Ultimately, the broader market of this technology will be traditional farming where one third of the world's labor force is employed, however individual organic farm operations are smaller in scale and experience higher operating expenses where the economics of our products have a greater positive impact. Total U.S. organic sales were $28.682 Billion in 2010, up 9.7 percent from 2009. The highest growth in sales during 2010 were organic fruits and vegetables, now representing over 11 percent of all U.S. fruit and vegetable sales. Mass market retailers in 2010 sold 54 percent of organic food, natural retailers selling 39 percent of total organic food sales. Certified organic acreage in the United States reached more than 4.8 million acres in 2008, according to latest data posted by USDA.
Organic farming employ alternative technologies, referred to as Integrated Pest Management where our product is proven extremely effective. ASIS products have been certified organic in its use and have broad applications in multiple cultivated products in the United States, some of which are unique. Many organic farms without an alternative no longer attempt to grow certain crops, sweet corn as an example due to the inability of the organic farmer to control worm infestation in the harvested product.
Increasing agricultural productivity will be central to containing food prices in a context of rising resource constraints. Over time, demand for agricultural products will tend to become inelastic – driven primarily by rising populations and widespread improved diets. Agribusinesses are increasing efficient “green” production globally. Without modernized agricultural techniques, current population growing 50% by 2050, cannot be sustained.
Insects are becoming more resistant to chemical insecticides causing increases in quantities being applied, decimating certain beneficial insect such as "the bee" population. The benefit to our eco-system of these insect is disappearing; development of alternatives are required which our product provides.
The company’s secondary, but no less important focus, is marketing its products for mosquito and infectious, disease-carrying insect control modalities. Infectious insects are a serious issue around the world, but particularly in the Southwestern United States where the West Nile Virus has developed as a major health problem. Due to widespread mosquito borne Malaria problems, the Malaysian government, in November of 2012, completed a series of formal extended studies of several mosquito control devices. Their exhaustive tests proved unequivocally that ASIS traps are ten times more effective in mosquito control than any other device tested. Globally, malaria is a dominant human health threat. A person dies of Malaria every 30-seconds; 2,500 individuals die each day. Due to climate change and lack of efficient mosquito controls, an additional 200 to 400 million people will be exposed to Malaria.
The presence of malaria in an area requires a combination of high human population density, high mosquito population density and high rates of transmission from humans to mosquitoes and from mosquitoes to humans. If any of these is lowered sufficiently, the parasite will eventually disappear from that area, as happened in North America, Europe and much of the Middle East. Many researchers argue that prevention of malaria may be more cost-effective than treatment of the disease in the long run, but the capital costs required are out of reach of many of the world's poorest people.
In certain areas of the world, mosquitoes that carry malaria have developed resistance to insecticides. In addition, the parasites have developed resistance to some antibiotics. These conditions have led to difficulty in controlling both the rate of infection and spread of this disease. International funding for malaria control has continued to rise to a peak of US$ 2 Bn in 2011. The amounts committed to malaria, while substantial, still fall short of the resources required to reach malaria control targets, which is estimated at more than US$ 5 Bn per year for the years 2010–2015.
The Company’s product, due to the science is extremely effective in controlling a wide range of insect problems. However, in a immense global industry where the operating problems of agriculture vary, dictated largely by the type of crops grown, climate and seasonality of the region a methodical plan for commercial deployment of its product is necessary, protecting its investors in achieving profitability.
ASIS marketing focus is in areas of the United States which naturally possess greater agriculture production, secondary focus is in southern states of United States; closer proximity to the equator experience multiple or longer growing seasons. In addition to ASIS's focus on Organic Farming, ASIS will market products for prominent insect problems in specific commercial crops. New species of insects migrating into the United States, attracted to different climates are decimating certain individual crops. These regions have no existing natural predators or known insecticides to mitigate its propagation.
