PMP shares incident of when he saved the day for a couple in dire need of bed bug treatment
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (February 12, 2013) – Robert Dunlap, owner of No-Bugs Pest Management in Monroe, Ohio, has been announced as the Bayer Temprid Save the Day Contest Winner. Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, called upon PMPs last summer to share triumphant stories of instances when they saved the day by tackling a pest problem using Temprid® SC Insecticide. Following two months of online voting by PMPs across the country, Dunlap has been declared the contest winner and recipient of free Temprid® and an all-expense-paid trip for four to Las Vegas, a much-deserved vacation for providing such a critical and exceptional service to his customers. Dunlap received the highest number of votes for his story when he provided treatments at no charge for a blind couple living with thousands of bed bugs.
Norman Barclift, General Insect Control Product Manager at Environmental Science, is happy to announce Dunlap as the contest winner.
“Robert shared an incredible story with us and his peers about a time when he certainly saved the day, donating his time for members of his community,” Barclift said. “We’re extremely proud to offer a product and platform that has allowed him to provide results and complete customer satisfaction.”
“I am thrilled to receive this award from my industry peers and want to thank all PMPs who contributed their votes to the contest,” Dunlap said. “It was an honor to represent my business and devotion for this industry, along with the other finalists who shared their compelling stories and passions for helping their communities live pest free.”
Dunlap’s story of success comes from a visit to the home of a blind couple who had been suffering from a severe bed bug infestation and lack of effective treatment. Using Temprid®, Dunlap was able to successfully treat and rid the couple’s property of bed bugs, eliminating the non-stop bug bites and giving them peace of mind. He provided the services to the couple at no charge—a gesture he strives to achieve at least once a month for a local home or business owner in great need of a pest control treatment.
“Temprid worked so well for me in this infestation that I decided that I wanted to use it religiously,” Dunlap said. “I’m a one-man operation, and I need to have the best chemicals I can buy. Right now, Temprid from Bayer is my liquid product of choice.”
