Who we are

Domobios is a research and development company, a spin-off of the Université Catholique de Louvain-la-Neuve (UCL) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). We develop attractive traps to eradicate domestic and agricultural insects/mites (house dust mites, lice, bed bugs, Asian ladybugs, stored food mites...).

We study the biology of these pests, particularly their communication and habitat selection behavior. Then, we mimic their communication (biomimicry) to lure them away from their normal refuge towards death traps. We do not use synthetic insecticides to kill these pests: our traps pose no danger to the health and to the environment.

Our Business Model

We develop the products until the first commercial trial. After the PoC phase (technical PoC & market PoC) phase, we licence our products to a strategic partner.


 Our flagship product, which is commercialized by the company Acar'Up, is Acar’Up, a product that traps dust mites and is an effective solution in the fight against allergies to dust mites.


Our mission is to provide effective, smart, ecological and safe solutions to fight against harmful domestic pests (dust mites, insects).


A better domestic and work environment


Our company’s 3 founding cornerstones are: dynamism, innovation and honesty.
