What is a Sundew?

A Sundew (Drosera) comprises one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants.  These members of the Sundew family lure, capture, and digest insects using stalked mucilaginous glands covering their left surface.  The insects are used to supplement the poor mineral nutrition of the soil in which they grow.  Various species, which vary greatly in size and form, can be found growing on every continent except Antarctica.

Brief History of Sundew Solutions

Sundew Solutions Pty Ltd was established in 2009 as a specialist research and development entity focused on providing innovative state-of-the-art pest solutions in a number of key strategic segments.  Since its inception Sundew has launched innovative new solutions every year to meet the markets every changing needs.  Core to the Sundew vision is developing environmentally sustainable solutions for our product users. 

Innovations such as Pestie Dotz allows users and non-users to accurately monitor and be aware of cockroach and ant gel treatments in the environment.  Across the globe it is estimated that over 51,000 kg of cockroach gel baits are applied daily with no accountability, measurement or traceability.  This is a major environmental concern.  Until the advent of Pestie Dotz™, gel baits were applied indiscriminately across the globe with no accountability, tracking or measurement.  Sundew is the only family owned 100% Australian business researching and developing pest solutions for the local market.
