Semios Technologies decided to create a product that radically changes how orchard growers handle pest control. The key to the product is the use of new pesticide-free pheromones. To turn this idea into reality, they needed to create a system that could sense where the pests were breeding and automatically dispense the pheromone-based pest control in response. Semios realized their largest challenge would be getting a system that worked in an environment with no dedicated power and where wireless signals needed to travel through the hundreds of acres of dense foliage. That is where SNAP-based technology from Synapse provided the answer.
