ICM signs up with French manufacturer and distributor Abiotec for sales of their Insectron® light traps in Germany, Benelux and the UK (UK exclusively).

ICM will also distribute insect traps developed and produced in Europe by Panko (http://www.panko.pl/en/), the only insect trap manufacturer conducting research specifically for the museum sector, and market leader in this field. ICM will offer Panko traps in Germany, Benelux and in the UK (UK exclusively).

Both partnerships complement ICM’s existing portfolio of curative insect pest treatments and IPM consulting by adding traps as very affordable preventive monitoring tools for the most common museum pests including silverfish and the so called paperfish or grey silverfish. Just as the well-established ICM humidity regulated warm air insect pest treatment, all traps are 100% ecological and contain no toxins.




About ICM

ICM – Integrated Contamination Management – offers solutions for insect pests and biocide decontamination in collections. ICM is embedded in art conservation through its Brussels-based mother company IPARC (International Platform for Art Research & Conservation).
With its humidity regulated warm air treatment system, ICM uses an ecologically-friendly method to treat both insect pest infestations and biocide contamination in art and heritage collections.
Insect pest infestations can severely damage or destroy artworks. Biocide residues can also harm collection objects, but additionally, have a serious impact on human health. Conservators, art handlers, art shippers are just a few of the groups who are often in prolonged close contact with contaminated objects. Biocide polluted collections are a worldwide problem.

ICM also offers a qualitative and quantitative analysis of contamination in museums. Furthermore, ICM advises on general IPM (Integrated Pest Management) in museums and collections and supplies insect monitoring traps. ICM contributes to establishing safe and healthy museum and working environments in line with the EU biocide regulation and SDG’s 3 and 11. Through its advisory board, ICM cooperates with internationally renowned experts in the fields of preventive conservation, entomology and chemistry.
ICM has offices and treatment facilities in London and in Brussels with other major European cities to follow. There is also a mobile treatment unit which can drive to any destination for treatments on site.

Please tell us (at info@icm.works) what insects are causing trouble and we will make a custom proposal with the appropriate traps (preventive) and/or ICM treatments (curative).
