Venteco is a holding company, listed on Aim, which specialises in non-toxic pest 
control solutions. Venteco was admitted to the Aim list on 24th of March, 
following a new issue of some GBP 3.1m. Its main operating businesses are 
Silvandersson, the leading manufacturer of glue traps and CTS Technologies, 
a specialist in non-poisonous pest control which uses the patented Cryonite 
technology to kill all life stages of insects in a poison-free and 
environmentally friendly manner. The technology involves the use of carbon 
dioxide gas which is sprayed as a snow produced by a special nozzle thereby 
achieving rapid cooling. The premises do not need to be evacuated and production 
of foodstuffs can continue during sanitations, thereby making the method 
cost-effective as well as environmentally-friendly.
