FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Vancouver, BC (June 18, 2013) – Terramera, a pioneer in developing effective and safe biopesticide products for pest management, today announced that it partnered with Hydrex Pest Control to provide pest control services for a nonprofit, transitional living center for the homeless, The Kingdom Center (TKC).
Alex McCarty, Site Manager for TKC said, “I was thrilled with the service and the results from the treatment in January. The response from everyone involved was just great. We were able to get rid of the bed bugs quickly and permanently from the treated unit and get our residents back into their home.” She further commented, “Thanks to the results, we now have a integrated pest management protocol (IPM) in place that we can rely on. When we had a bed bug incident in another one of our residential units, we turned to Terramera.”
The vision of TKC is to come together as a community to provide hope, resources and strength to those less fortunate, empowering them to become productive members of our community. So, it was only fitting that in order to properly serve TKC, Terramera partnered with Hydrex Pest Control (Hydrex) who generously volunteered their resources.
Dave Watkins, General Manager of Hydrex, and long-time CIRKIL-user, said, “I am glad that we could help a pillar of our community. I prefer that my technicians use CIRKIL because it actually delivers on the claims that it makes about its efficacy. We have tried other products [for bed bugs], but nothing performs for my customers the way CIRKIL does.”
CIRKIL® products are effective against pyrethroid resistant strains; have a broad and flexible label and can be used in nearly every indoor space and surface: including mattresses and carpets. Most notably, CIRKIL® products are the only EPA-registered pesticide on the market that kill bed bugs and their eggs as a residual.
Terramera is the leader in developing revolutionary biopharma products that are an effective and safe means for pest management. The company’s flagship product is CIRKIL® for bed bug control. CIRKIL® is available in concentrate form (CIRKIL® CX) and works against all stages of a bed bug’s life cycle including eggs. Terramera is a Vancouver based company founded in 2009 with the mission to provide safe and innovative pest management products for every person and family.
