Continuous Protection For Stored Tobacco

Every year, insect pests destroy an estimated US $400 million of stored tobacco. The Carifend® System is based on insecticidal net technology specifically designed to protect warehouse-stored tobacco from cigarette beetles and tobacco moths.


Carifend® is the only insect control system that provides continuous, preventative protection for tobacco and is the first application of insecticidal net technology for stored goods.


Carifend® significantly reduces the need for fumigation and provides enhanced stewardship over conventional control treatments for employees, facilities, and the environment. It has been proven to be up to 100 % effective in real-life industry trials around the world. It reduces downtime, boosts productivity, and preserves the quality, quantity, and value of the stored tobacco.
