Company Summary

RSC has adapted chemical weapons sensors to deliver reliable and accurate detection of termites, replacing flashlight and screwdriver – the current state of the art. Poor detection and high liability creates high costs for PMPs, while consumers are underserved and overcharged. Our technology will reduce costs, grow the market, and enable risk based pricing. We serve pest professionals and anyone who owns, operates or underwrites property.
