Vancouver, BC (June 4, 2013) – Terramera, a pioneer in developing effective plant-based biopesticide products for pest management helped make The Kingdom Center, a nonprofit, transitional living center for the homeless in Ventura, CA be bed bug free.

Earlier this year a representative from The Kingdom Center reached out to Terramera after discovering a bed bug infestation in one of the residents’ rooms. Alex McCarty, site Manager, from Kingdom Center said, “We were looking for safe alternatives, as some of our residents are small children and we did not want to introduce harmful chemicals into our environment. We researched several of the common treatments [conventional chemical pesticides] and heat treatments which were extremely expensive and outside of our budget. That’s when we came across Terramera’s CIRKIL products.”

Terramera’s CIRKIL product line is an EPA-approved plant-based pesticide and the only pesticide on the market that is proven to kill bed bug eggs as a residual.

“We could not be happier with the results, the preparation was very easy and the technicians solved our bed bug problem with only one treatment of CIRKIL,” said Alex McCarty “I was so surprised that CIRKIL could be applied right onto the mattress and carpets as I did not know that this was possible. It has been 3 weeks and we have not seen any more bugs in the treated areas.”

The Kingdom Center (TKC) operates several shelters offers a unique program that unites the entire community to provide family transitional housing to the homeless. TKC provides an innovative approach to helping the less fortunate by providing not only a place to call home, but counseling, support and mentoring. Supported by over 21 churches, hundreds of community members and businesses, TKC has been able to unite and rebuild the lives of many in need.
