FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Temprid SC™ Insecticide Now Labeled for Bed Bugs

Bayer Delivers the Newest Weapon in the Fight Against Bed Bugs

Research Triangle Park, N.C. – February 15, 2010 – Bayer Environmental Science is pleased to announce that bed bugs have officially fallen into "The Temprid Zone," having received acceptance from the Environmental Protection Agency to add bed bug control to the Temprid SCInsecticide label.

In response to the industry’s growing demand for a fast, effective solution against bed bugs – especially those strains that have shown resistance to pyrethroids –Bayer worked diligently to expedite the addition of bed bugs to the Temprid SC Insecticide label. "We are thrilled to deliver a new weapon in the fight against bed bugs to the industry, especially at a time when infestations are on the rise nationwide," says Eric Lentz, general insect control marketing manager for Bayer.

Now, the speed of control that many pest management professionals have experienced with Temprid SC for ants and perimeter pests can be applied to bed bugs, including resistant strains. Temprid’s fusion of imidacloprid and beta-cyfluthrin controls bed bugs faster than the leading pyrethroids. Temprid also provides a long-lasting residual, controlling resistant bed bugs for more than 30days, even on fabrics where many other products have failed. In addition, Temprid kills bed bug eggs when applied as a direct treatment and, more surprisingly, dried residues prevent eggs from hatching. "Helping PMPs overcome their toughest control problems without sacrificing their business’ profitability is all part of the ‘Backed by Bayer’ promise," says Lentz.

Temprid SC already has a very flexible indoor and outdoor use label for control of ants and other pests, but now it can also be applied to the places bed bugs Page 2 of 2

like to hide, including mattresses, box springs, headboards, bed frames, furniture, upholstery, curtains, picture frames and carpet edges. "With Temprid, PMPs only need one product to solve their toughest infestations of ants, most perimeter pests – and now, bed bugs. Knowing you can rely on one product to solve multiple problems can help you streamline your business operations and save on labor costs in the field," says Lentz.

Temprid is available for use in 48 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Temprid is sold in an easy-to-pour 400ml bottle and is packaged 6 bottles to a case.
