PMPs Can Save On Gas with Premise and Get Free Music with Temprid by Participating in Bayer’s New Sales Promotions

New Premise® and Temprid® promotions offer bonus gift cards with qualifying purchases

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (September 23, 2011) – Environmental Science, a business unit of Bayer CropScience LP, has launched two promotions that will give pest management professionals (PMPs) an added bonus when purchasing some of Bayer’s most popular products. For each purchase of a case of Premise® 75 WP Insecticide or Temprid® SC Insecticide, PMPs will receive a $50 gas gift card or a $50 iTunes® gift card, respectively.

Premise non-repellent termiticide delivers less than 1% retreats guaranteed at a price that’s approximately half the cost of the leading termiticide, making it an excellent choice to treat termites this fall. For each case of Premise purchased between September 15 and October 31, PMPs will qualify for a free $50 gas gift card.

“Not only will Premise help save PMPs from wasting gas on callback appointments and follow-up applications, but now purchasing the product will put gas money back in their pockets,” said Eric Lentz, general insect control marketing manager for Environmental Science.

The concurrent “Music To Your Ears” program offers PMPs a $50 iTunes gift card for each case of Temprid purchased between September 15 and October 31. Temprid delivers unsurpassed ant and perimeter pest control, reducing callbacks by up to 60 percent. Temprid is also the product of choice for bed bug control: it is labeled for indoor use in active and potential bed bug harborage sites. Furthermore, Temprid has the ability to kill bed bug eggs when applied as a direct treatment.

“With Bed Bug Awareness month in September, now is the perfect time to invest in Temprid, which provides long-lasting residual performance, controlling resistant bed bugs for more than 30 days,” said Lentz. “Temprid also offers unmatched control of ants, spiders, and other perimeter pests, making it a great product for PMPs to have on their trucks as an effective solution with a flexible label.”
